Life on Long Island
The Miss Gay Long Island Pageant
If you're used to catching the top LI drag events at The Bunkhouse in Patchogue, keep in mind that this year’s Miss Gay Long Island Pageant (MGLIP) will not be taking place there this weekend.
Actually, according to the latest Bunkhouse announcements, the bash had to move to even bigger digs, as the response for advance ticket sales has reportedly exceeded the venue’s capacity. So, on Sunday, the 2013 contest will be taking place at Barrington's Tavern & Social Club in Hauppauge.
The newest group to take over Barrington’s says that it will be looking to offer a variety of interesting events, and the MGLIP gala is certainly not an average pub party; instead expect exciting clothes, displays of stage presence and plenty of performances -- including a number from Manorville pop singer Tina Decara, music by DJ Bryan Thomas and a special appearance by singer (and current judge from Logo cable network show ‘’RuPaul's Drag Race”) Michele Visage, with Ariel Sinclair set to play host for the entire affair.
Doors open at 6 p.m., with tickets $15 each; for purchase or more information call 631-506-6600. For more on The Bunkhouse head online to facebook.com/bunk.house.1.
