A daughter, mom and grandma walk into a drag show….stop me if you heard this one already.
Well the fact is that is my latest experience at Lips. Took my 16 year old and my mom to the Sunday “Dining With the Divas” night. I have been to Lips a number of times before, to different shows. There is a range of dirtiness depending on the show (The Saturday night show is raunchy beyond belief and would have Larry Flynt blushing). But Sunday is the Gospel Brunch during the day and Dining with the Divas at night so a pretty safe show to bring anyone to. In fact there was an entire busload of seniors including 1 celebrating her 90th birthday there.
Technically this is a restaurant. And the food is decent. Especially as far as “dinner theater” fare goes. The salmon, pork loin and chicken marsala are all tasty. But you aren’t here for the food. Or even for the frozen cosmos…which go down way easy. Nope. You are here for the fun frolic of drag….that’s right. Chicks with dicks, girls with a little something extra or a “Gringa with a Pinga” as our MC described herself, I think this was the point where my mom realized that all the beautiful ladies were dudes. Even though I had tried to explain in detail including a discussion of duck tape, she just couldn’t comprehend that our gorgeous server “April” who knocked out an awesome Nikki Minaj was in fact a guy, probably with a name like Leonard…
We got an eyeful of Marilyn Munroe, Cher, J Lo, Pink, and yes, even Elsa from Disney’s “Frozen” rocked Let It Go….
Which is what you should do if you have any hang ups about Drag Queens, dirty humor, LET IT GO….and GO TO LIPS. Actually if you have any of those hang ups you probably shouldn’t be on this site. Its really only a matter of time before we shock you.
AND BRING LOTS OF SINGLES TO TIP THE PERFORMERS! You will get extra love.
