3 drag brunches to visit in the St. Louis area

Drag brunch is a long-standing tradition, and it’s easy to see why: It has all the appeal of dinner theater with plenty of time left in the day for a responsibly early bedtime. St. Louis diners have increasingly more choices for their daytime glamour fix served with a side of pancakes. Don’t forget to bring plenty of cash for tips.
