DRAG BRUNCH UPDATE: Victor Tangos sets summer schedule

Jenni P will host the first Drag Brunch at Victor Tangos on June 11.

Yesterday we found out that Cedar Grove, the Cedar Springs Road restaurant that has been home to Drag Brunch, closed unexpectedly. And Drag Brunch hostess Jenni P noted that Drag Brunch would be starting up soon at Victor Tangos, a popular Knox-Henderson area restaurant.

We reached out to Victor Tangos’ general manager, Heather Borges, and she confirmed her restaurant’s Drag Brunch schedule. Here’s what she told us:

“We had no idea that Cedar Grove was going to close when we starting planning Drag Brunch at VT’s. We have been big fans of the drag brunch they do and we are so bummed they are closing. In fact, a group of our staff was there just this past Sunday.

“As Cedar Grove has always done Drag Brunch on the last Sunday of the month, we decided we would do it on the second Sunday of the month for June, July and August. We will make a decision later in the summer if we will continue the shows after August.

“The first show is June 11 at 2:30 p.m. Word of mouth has spread very quickly, and we are already on a wait list. The second show, on July 9, will have a 12:30 p.m. show as well as a 2:30 p.m. show. We are currently taking reservations for this day over the phone only at 214-252-8595.

“For the first show, Jenni P will host with performances by Krystal Summers, Tyler Benson and Chanel LaMasters.

“We are so excited to be hosting Drag Brunch and hope that we can offer a fun experience for our guests!”

Cedar Grove brings back Drag Brunch this Sunday!

IMG_0021When Dish in the ilume announced it was closing in February, everyone in the gayborhood wondered: What will happen to Drag Brunch? Owner Tim McEneny told me in June, when the new concept, Cedar Grove, opened, that Drag Brunch would return … but didn’t have a firm date.

Well, now we do! It’s this Sunday, Sept. 25, with three-courses-and-a-show for $35. And you can also get lunch now every Friday from 11 a.m.–2 p.m.

WATCH: Jenna Skyy and Jenni P pitch Dish’s monthly Drag Brunch on “GMT”

Looks like Dallas drag is going mainstream. Every month, Dish hosts Drag Brunch and cast members Jenna Skyy and Jenni P put on their P.R. drag yesterday morning to tell all of Dallas about it. The two went on Good Morning Texas and talked up the monthly event along with identifying Dallas as having one of the largest drag communities in the country. Clips of P and Skyy are also featured, but the fun part is watching how the cameraman tries to keep Skyy’s abundant cleavage out of sight.

Watch their segment after the jump.

Drag brunch returns to Dish with Krystal Summers, Jenni P

A few weeks about I wrote about Dish’s Sunday drag brunch — two seatings that come with live drag entertainment — and it returns Aug. 7 at 11 a.m. and 1 p.m. In addition to DJ Paul Paredes, drag divas Krystal Summers and Jenni P will provide the camp along with an excellent meal that includes bottomless mimosas or bloody Marys.

Can’t make it this weekend? Mark your calendars — the next after that is Aug. 21.

Dish hosts drag brunch, brings back Tardy Party

This week’s cover story is about brunches and how Dish and other restaurants are pushing the nightclub-feel to Sunday morning. Well, the next one is this Sunday, with two seatings: One at 11 a.m., one at 1 p.m. Jenni P and Jenna Skyy will provide the entertainment along with DJ Paul Paredes.

But just because some of the fun is in daylight doesn’t mean you can’t be there at night as well. Dish just announced tonight’s Tardy Party, the return of the late-night soiree. DJ Moses will spin from 11 p.m. to 2 a.m. while you enjoy $5 premium vodkas. And if you miss this one, no worries — it’ll be back next month on Aug, 19.
