Mid-Day's a Drag

My niece and I met for Brunch last Sunday at Canteen on Sutter Street (yowza, delicious!) and wandered back toward Union Square afterwards. On a whim, we decided to go up to The Starlight Room at the Sir Francis Drake Hotel for a cocktail. As we emerged into the swanky penthouse parlor, we quickly realized a drag show was in full swing.
Donna Sachet Passing By

Hosted by the pleasant, vanilla hostess Donna Satchet, the afternoon revue also features a blonde Jessica Rabbit knock-out, a Whitney Houston devotee (seen below) whose "Star-Spangled Banner" segued nicely into "I Wanna Dance with Somebody," and a curvaceous vamp seen crouching onstage on the right edge of the above photograph. The midday sun flooding in through a few colored windows gave everyone good, natural backlight and the bartenders were handsome & easygoing. It was a bit of afternoon serendipity in downtown San Francisco plus a free glass of champagne...
