SUNDAY, Nov. 15

CC’s Drag Brunch CC’s Low Carb Kitchen $30  |  2 p.m. Due to overwhelming demand, a second show of CC’s Drag Brunch has been added.

It’s possible that drag goes better with brunch than mimosas. But why make us choose? Tova Ura Vitch, “The Queen of Bling,” hosts two brunch-time shows featuring DJ Syimone from 11a.m. to 2 p.m. and again from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m. This new restaurant in The 800 Building could become your next brunch spot, too, as CC’s makes everything from scratch and offers healthy, low carb “elevated comfort foods”… so brunch won’t send you right back to sleep. Plus, drink specials all day this Sunday. Tickets are available here.
