Big Gay Pride Brunch

The first weekend of Pride never tasted so good

Pull up a chair and have a mimosa, grrl, because you look like a hot mess, and your "date" does, too.

That fashion show was somethin', wasn't it? Mmm hmmm. Bedhead, bloodshot eyes, and still wearing the same shirt from last night; the remedy is some hair of the bitch that bit’chou. At least you wore something stylish at the Moody.

It's a good thing that Bobby Cook and Chris Topher Hattersley anticipated your fall from grace and are throwing the Big Gay PRIDE Brunch at Slate Restaurant on Sun., Aug. 23, 11am-3pm, the morning after Werk.

Enjoy a full brunch menu with your choice of $2 mimosas or $10 carafes, all the while finding the rhythm of your PRIDE week with DJ Deftone. And, if that put the hair back on your chest, queen, performances by Cupcake and Sable Scities will have you up on your feet in no time – so no dragging your heels.

Enter the 50/50 raffle and drawing for the Big Gay Gift Bag for a chance to win festival tickets, official PRIDE merch, as well as other kickass prizes. You aren’t gonna want to miss out on this fabulous start to your PRIDE week, so put your game face on, and pull it together, 'mo.

For more PRIDE details, including tickets, times, and the best parties, go to Austin Pride, and continue following us at The Gay Place .
