Looking for something entirely different for Sunday brunch? Epernay Lounge just introduced Royal Brunch, featuring entertainment in the form of drag hostesses. Mixing a European tea dance with a classic gay T-dance, the Sunday brunch includes rounds of Drag Queen Bingo (not your grandmother's version) and other parlor games, as well as choreographed performances from the queens themselves to keep the energy high and the bottomless mimosas flowing. The eats are Epernay's take on familiar brunch fare, including vanilla French toast, a Kobe beef omelette, eggs Benedict with prosciutto, smoked salmon with herbed cream cheese on toast points, and even a fruit parfait. Shake up your Sunday routine and get a little down and a little dirty with the Royal Brunch at an afternoon you won't forget.
The Royal Brunch runs every Sunday from 2 to 6 p.m. You can make reservations at 303- 573-5000 or at epernaylounge.com; walk-ins are also welcome. Keep reading for a look at some of the dishes — and the divas — and read the expanded story on our Arts blog.
