The event is spearheaded by culinary organization Les Dames d’Escoffier’s South Florida chapter (proud to say I’m a member).

Popular Miami Entertainment Spot, Palace Bar, is Back!

Missing live entertainment (where you can socially distance of course)? Head on to South Beach institution the Palace Bar Miami and its drag show. Their slogan,” Every Queen Needs a Palace”. I hadn’t been there but heard good things about it from friends, and I was dying to “mix it up” as I say, do something different and great fun. We reserved for weekend brunch, the early seating, which comes with a two hour show with five performers. There are also evening performances of its Drag Show in Miami seven nights a week. After going, I can see how it’s managed to be successful for over 30 years.
