‘RuPaul’s Drag Race’ 100th episode party set for Mezzanine



The club Mezzanine is hosting a party Sunday, February 28 to mark the 100th episode of the TV show RuPaul’s Drag Race.

Sunday’s event will feature performances by Season 8 contestants Acid Betty, Bob The Drag Queen, Chi Chi Devayne, and several others, along with Season Six Winner Bianca Del Rio and DJ Lady Bunny.

Doors open at 8 p.m., and the show begins at 9. Tickets are $40 to $75.

Many will likely stay home to watch the Academy Awards presentation, which is happening around the same time, but Richard Ferraro, who’s promoting the party, said in an email that organizers aren’t worried that the Oscar broadcast will hurt attendance at their show.

“It’s tough to be up against the Oscars but ticket sales have surprisingly been very strong,” Ferraro said.

The new of Drag Race premieres Monday, March 7 with “a supersized 90-minute episode that unveils a court of cut-throat Queens each competing to snatch the crown and strut away with a $100,000 cash prize and the coveted title of ‘America’s Next Drag Superstar,'” a news release says. “Along the way, they’ll face an unpredictable competition and deliver gag-worthy and jaw-dropping moments as these talented ladies of drag join the fabulous 88 Queens who fought for the crown before them.”

Mezzanine is at 444 Jessie Street in San Francisco.
