Tourists love drag queens almost as much as the Statue of Liberty (who looks a little manly herself). At seedy Lucky Cheng’s, they can gawk to their heart’s content at the nightly shows, as karaoke addicts sip cocktails like the Pink Pussy (don’t even ask). Join in on a Liza, Babs or Diana tune. The bartender can be a bit snippy, the Madama Butterfly motif heavy-handed and the music too loud, but proof of the formula’s success lies in its longevity: Ten years and the shtick still sticks.
