Weekend Photo Roundup, Jerry & Drag!

Wow, what a weekend!  I’m clearly a bit biased when it comes to my enthusiasm for this community but even I was surprised by the turnout we saw at both Jerry Day and Drag Queen Bingo.  Two very different but completely San Francisco events that take place right here in our little neighborhood.

Jerry Day was on Sunday and if you missed it, there was another record crowd.  Live performances were given by Melvin Seals & JGB, Midnight North and Stu Allen & Mars Hotel.  The crowds overflowed into the park with event goers dancing the afternoon away.

The Portola Neighborhood Association hosted the 3rd annual Drag Queen Bingo event last Thursday to another record crowd.  Every year the attendance seems to double with this year’s event attracting over 150 guest and over 30 Drag Queens & Kings of all ages.  Prizes ranging from homemade cheesecakes to Sephora gift certificates were awarded to winners but the biggest prize of the night went to the P.N.A. who raised over $2,000!  No plans for the funds yet but it will go to support the group which is responsible for such projects as the new mural that just went up on the side of Breakfast At Tiffany’s (more on that in another post.)
