Ladies of Geek Night Out - Nellies Drag Brunch

Who doesn't want to be served by a bunch of Queens? Join fellow ladies of geek night out for a Sunday Morning Drag Brunch at Nellies! Please bring cash - it makes it easier to split the bill at the end of the meal.

 

The brunch, organized and hosted by Nellie's stalwart queen Shi-Queeta Lee, takes place upstairs on the deck during football season to avoid such altercations.


Drag Brunch has become so popular, Nellie's requires reservations through OpenTable. And they're generally booked two weeks in advance. It's especially popular for birthdays or other group celebrations, appealing to both gays and straights, men and women.
''Even though there are other drag brunches in the city,'' says Shi-Queeta Lee, ''[people] like ours because [the drag queens] actually wait on the tables. We intermingle with the guests as well as perform.''


In fact, Lee and her all-star team of local drag queens offer some of the most attentive table service around, wearing bright yellow waitress dresses straight out of a twisted IHOP dream. The queens even make waffles to order. For $25, brunch patrons can eat an unlimited amount of food, from standard breakfast fare to traditional Southern and Cuban items. The bar is open, too, with Zing Zang Bloody Marys the house specialty. (Source: http://www.metroweekly.com/arts_entertainment/dining.php?ak=6403)

    Even with reservations, the restaurant might not hold your seat if you're not there on time--this brunch is extremely popular. So please try to be early.

    Tip: Bring singles to tip the performers!

    Fancy day time date apparel. Back in the day it used to be an excuse to show off in front of your girlfriends (it still kind of is church hat included.) Typically I wear church clothes (casual) clothing.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
