For somewhat dubious-sounding reasons, Floor 21, Juanita More’s Wednesday evening cocktail soiree at the Sir Francis Drake Hotel’s Starlight Room, ended last month. A certain retro style of glamour seldom seen in S.F. these days pervaded the affair, week after week. But the famously politically engaged drag queen with a discerning palate ain’t taking it lying down.
Next Wednesday, Nov. 11, at 7 p.m., A.C.T.’s Strand Theater (1127 Market) will host the The House of MORE’s Puttin’ on the Titz, a one-night-only drag bonanza featuring a wide cross-section of San Francisco’s elite. Glamamore, Miss Rahni, Voodonna Black, Dulce de Leche, Fauxnique, Honey Mahogany, and Qween — all of whom, it is claimed, have a collective 250 years of stage experience to their names — will perform live and lip-synched vintage acts, with a fair amount of dance and comedy thrown in.
Outside, in the lobby’s Giggle Water Bar, Just Shannon will pour classic cocktails as silent films screen above. Tickets start at only $25, so you won’t find yourself “spending every dime / for a wonderful time.”
House of MORE! – Puttin’ On The Titz, Friday, Nov. 11, 7-10 p.m., at A.C.T.’s Strand Theater, 1127 Market St., $25-$35, act-sf.org.
