THREE COURSES, FOUR DRAG QUEENS:
TUJAGUE'S TO HOST DRAG QUEEN BRUNCH SUNDAY, JULY 24TH
Festive 160th Anniversary Celebration to Benefit NO/AIDS Task Force's "Food for Friends"

Tujague's 160th anniversary yearlong celebration continues with a Sunday Funday not to be missed. On Sunday, July 24, 2016, 11:30AM - 2PM, the second oldest restaurant in New Orleans will join forces with NO/AIDS Task Force to kick off the annual fundraising event, Dining Out for Life. That day, guests can head down to the French Quarter for a festive Drag Queen Brunch featuring appearances by the vivacious MC Kitty D'Litter and her cast of Queens. A portion of the proceeds will benefit "Food for Friends," a meal delivery program under the NO/AIDS Task Force that has served people living with AIDS since 1992.

According to owner Mark Latter, "The Drag Queen Brunch is a fun way to pay tribute to our history. Back in the 1800's, the restaurant served up a Butcher's Breakfast - a mid-morning meal for the workers which we now call brunch. Plus, we've been known to have a few cross-dressing ghosts hanging around the restaurant, so we thought, let's put the two together."

Curated by Tujague's Executive Chef Marcus Woodham, the three-course menu features a variety of culinary delights as well as bottomless mid-morning cocktails such as Mimosas, Brandy Milk Punches, Pimm's Cups, and Bloody Marys. Priced at $50 per person (excluding tax and gratuity), menu follows:
