"I see Wynwood moving away from its sense of community and becoming more about big businesses," says Susan Buckley, co-owner of No. 3 Social. "We created the series to add to the positive cultural voice for which our neighborhood is known and offer a new inclusive space for art-minded people to congregate."
New Moon Cabaret found Rios Dio Mio will host the festivities, and Grammy-nominated DJ Tracy Young will provide the tunes. Performances by drag queens Andro Gin, Dang-Ho, Dasha Sweetwaters, and Sofia Luna will continue thought the afternoon. Performances will happen every 20 minutes from 2 to 7 p.m. In addition to busting moves and belting out pop songs, Buckley says, the performers will put on a variety show of sketch comedy, burlesque, and acrobatics.
"This is not a drag show where people just sit and watch the show," says Buckley, who also hosts weekly rooftop cinema events, jazz performances, and ladies' nights at the space. "We want the show to evolve with time with new artists and different performances so people come often for the novelty of it."
Accompanying the action-packed affair is a boozy brunch, including two hours of bottomless mimosas and one choice of a breakfast dish — such as a sausage sandwich with egg, cheese, and special sauce; fish tacos with red snapper, smashed avocado, and mango hot sauce; deviled eggs with house bacon; and fried chicken with french toast bites and smoked maple syrup — for a fixed price of $40 per person.
No. 3 Social will also offer an à la carte menu that includes oysters ($18), stone crabs ($6), a signature burger ($18), and fried chicken and French toast bites with smoked maple syrup ($8), along with a two-hour, $20 bottomless mimosa option.
Buckley says fans of drag shows are welcome to wander in and out during the afternoon brunch. "We want to make it a real immersive experience. There's no curtain going up and down, and there's no cover for those who just want to come up just to enjoy the show."
