On St. Patrick’s Day, Sake Toomey is serving up a roast - but you won’t find any corned beef and cabbage at this event. Join us for Hometown Brodown: A Tribute to Beantown, a drag, burlesque, and WTF?? “tribute” to the city we call home.
Emceed by Sake Toomey, this event will have you asking, “Wait, is Ben Carr ACTUALLY my patronus? If I cut myself, do I bleed Dunkin Donuts coffee? Why do I want to read more Tom Brady/Julian Edelman fan fiction?” Yes, we will have a dramatic reading of A Gronking to Remember. Yes, someone will be dressed as a mermaid from the depths of the Chahls. Yes, we will chant “Yankees suck!” At first you won’t understand why, but you’ll soon be consumed by the need to drop your Rs, pick up a case of Sam Summah, and change your name to Larry Bird. (It’s perfect, because your lucky number is 33.)
Performers include Sugar Dish (Lipstick Criminals, The Slutcracker), Honey Pie (Lipstick Criminals, The Slutcracker), Dahlia Strack (Rogue Burlesque, The Slaughterhouse Society), Lucky Charming (Sirlesque, White Elephant Burlesque), Dewie Decimator (Rogue Burlesque), Ginger Snap (The Betsi Feathers), Brandy Wine (Rogue Burlesque), Sherman (Boston League of Wicked Wrestlers, The Slaughterhouse Society) and MORE.
Tickets are $10 and available online via The Midway Cafe’s website. This event is 21+.
