King Brasserie Hosts Pride Month Lip Sync Challenge on June 28th

NEW ORLEANSKimpton Hotel Fontenot is hosting a special Pride Month Lip Sync Challenge on the terrace at King Brasserie & Bar on Friday, June 28, from 7 to 10 p.m. All are invited to come and wrap up the month’s festivities with a celebration of community, the art of drag, and music from the best pop divas in the game.

Just a short trip up the stairs from the dining room of King Brasserie, the outdoor terrace on the second floor will come alive with thrilling performances from some of the city’s best. With London Manchester on the mic as event host and Laveau Contraire as guest judge for the evening, a group of six amazing queens – Xaneax, Sonika Boom, Kozmik, Terri Aqui, Vantasia Divine, and Luxurie – will battle it out to see who will be a lip sync assassin and who must “sashay away!”

A photo booth by Mirror Image will be snapping memories at the event for attendees. A general admission ticket fee of $25 includes entry, sip of bubbles, and pre-show light bites. And there will be a cash bar for drinks.

To fuel up for the evening ahead, attendees can come early to dine at King Brasserie before heading upstairs and enjoy favorites like the Crawfish Beignets, the King Burger, Steak Frites, Crawfish with Wild Ramp Risotto, or Grilled Octopus with wild boar ragout, smoked white bean and spring onion. Or you could experience one of the final evenings of King’s Tour d’Azur: Provence four-course tasting menu – Goat Cheese Fondue, Asparagus & Tahini, Gulf Fish Provençal, and Yuzu Tart – before the culinary tour moves to focus on French Basque Country for the summer.

And throughout the month of June, King Brasserie is featuring special cocktails for Pride month, where $1 from each Pride cocktail sold will be donated to The Trevor Project. Drinks include The L Word with Bombay Sapphire and Wonderbird Gin, Boomsma Cloosterbitter, Velvet Falernum, sugar snap pea syrup, sage and lime; My Lover Cindi with Coquerel Calvados, Tattersall Pommeau, Knob Creek, pineapple and cinnamon; and The Agenda with Milagro Blanco Tequila, Punch Fantasia, Chareau, lemon, agave and Cava sparkling wine.
