St. Louis Yelp Elites rolled out of bed on a bright Sunday morning to have brunch at Hamburger Mary’s. Sound boring? Maybe… if there weren't bottomless mimosas and Queens present. That’s right, Queens. Hamburger Mary’s broke out their finest silverware and drag show performers to give Elites the best, and maybe only, drag show brunch they would ever attend.
Hamburger Mary’s provided a fully stocked brunch buffet complete with biscuits & gravy, cheesy hash brown casserole, bacon, sausage, french toast, danishes, and eggs. Just trying a little bit of everything left Yelpers stuffed, and Hao X “went home and food coma-ed for the rest of the day”. We all did, but Hao X put it perfectly!
No brunch buffet is complete without bottomless mimosas. Hamburger Mary’s must have been tipped off that Yelp Elite’s love their morning pick-me-up in the form of OJ & Champagne because they kept the good-stuff flowing. It’s a good thing they did, too, because how else would Sal E sing along to Mariah Carey without her mimosa microphone?!
After an hour of open buffet, the fantastic performance began! The Queens got dolled up for Yelp with massive hair, gaudy jewelry, high-heels, and award-winning performances. They kept the crowd laughing and engaged throughout the entire performance. The Queens managed to make their way to the Yelp crowd and give them a warm welcome with plenty of heckling and photos for tips.
Amanda K summed up this Elite event better than we could: “What’s better than a delicious brunch with hilarious drag queens entertaining you?” Nothing. Well put, Amanda K, well put.

Until the next time and still laughing at this photo,
