Curiosa Drag Brunch at Curio - Sunday, February 23 at Noon

A brand new drag brunch is exploding onto Valencia EVERY LAST SUNDAY of the month! Join your stellar hostess trixxie carr as she welcomes her favourite performers to entertain and stimulate you over bottomless mimosas and fantastic eats at CURIO... This unique celebration will feature avant-garde art, music and drag antics, and surprises for the artists as well as guests! What will happen when Curio opens its space and its heart to the drag community?! ONLY AWESOMENESS IS POSSIBLE!

For our first (virginal) month and our debut we will be joined by the flawlessly talented and endlessly beautiful Scarlett Letters! Her legacy of intrigue is matched only by her defiant wit and intellectual musings - and she has great taste in MUSIC!

Sparkle gloriously, dress up and mess up! Everyone is invited to the party! $10 gets you a seat, you decide what you drink and eat...

Support your local drag performers as they invade the Mission - on a mission to SEDUCE AND DESTROY!!!
