Drag Brunch 2014 Sells Out

Monday, March 17th, 2014

Hi folks – we’re glad (and sad) to say that the third Drag Brunch at Gunk Haus on April 6th is now fully booked, with 85 people signed up to attend! Thanks to everyone who made their reservations with Dirk at the Gunk Haus, and we’re thrilled that everyone is so excited to see the antics of Trixie Starr, JoJo Gerard, Lilly Sa’Vage and Miss Pattie Lee.

However, we don’t like having to turn anyone away. If you missed snagging a reservation, you can add yourself to our waiting list by calling (914) 785-8277 or emailing us. If we receive any cancellations, we’ll fill them from the waiting list on a first-come, first-serve basis depending on the size of your party. (For example, if a party of 2 cancels, we’ll notify the next party of 2 on our list. If a party of 4 cancels, and the next 2 people on the waiting list ask for a party of 2, we’ll offer them the spots.) We will contact you if we have space for you by Saturday, April 5th at 5 pm.

Or, you can call Gunk Haus the morning of April 6 to check on availability.

Thank you for your support! All proceeds from the Drag Brunch support the Hudson Valley AIDS Walk, which happens on the Walkway Over the Hudson on Saturday, May 17th.
