If you're in NYC, don't miss Pickled Pink, a new drag brunch at Iridium (1650 Broadway, part of Ellen's Stardust Diner) coming June 19 and June 26.

I attended a soft opening — don't tell Ron DeSantis — and thought it was a lot of fun. The space is cute, the food (Holy Moly French Toast, Avocado Toast, Fried Chicken & Waffles, Breakfast Burger, Eggs Benedict, Bacon Egg & Cheese and/or Breakfast Burrito) delectable ... and then there's the girls, girls, girls.

When I went, hostess Lyra Vega and her ladies Cissy Walken, Princess Bytch and Tiffany Heather Samantha provided the entertainment, which included spot-on Shania Twain, Amy Winehouse, Whitney Houston, Britney Spears and more. 

Tiffany stole the show with a big, big (and real voice), but all were loads of fun.

The girls were worth their dollars. We had a blast, and the crowd that showed up was fully invested. Two volunteers gamely took to the stage for a catwalk-off, and it took no arm-twisting to get the up there.
