Bachelorette parties, birthday groups, and revelers looking for a raucous morning meal start lining up around 9:30 to snag a prime seat at this legendary drag brunch. The all-you-can-eat buffet—everything from California rolls to scrambled eggs—is as eclectic as the troupe of over-the-top drag queens lip-synching “I Will Survive,” but the real reason to come is the sequins and high-heeled gymnastics. Shy guys might want to snag a bar seat away from the performers’ lavish attentions. Everyone else, bring dollar bills to show your appreciation. Sunday 10 to 3.
