The place claims to be “the ultimate in drag dining,” and the staff is a sassy, flamboyant bunch. Still, it’s often heteros who pile in for office and bachelorette parties. Sip the Frankie, a potent mix of gin, SoCo, peach schnapps and 7-Up; watch impersonators of gay icons (Cher, Madonna) perform song-and-dance acts; or strut your stuff at Tuesday night’s Drag Karaoke.
