“PORTOLOVE”, Drag Queen Bingo Fundraiser This Thursday!

Just in time for Valentine’s Day, the Portola Neighborhood Association presents “Portolove”, Drag Queen Bingo 3.5 at El Toro Nightclub!  Portola’s BEST (and only) night club!

Due to popular demand, this yearly community fundraising event is now occurring bi annually. The Portolove edition of D.B.Q. will feature some changes to create more of a drag show atmosphere around the fierce bingo competition. The emcee is now “Vandetta”, a Portola Drag Queen who promises to sprinkle in some surprises between rounds. El Toro club owner, Jorge, is also rumored to have booked a full drag show that will begin after the last prize has been handed out. There will be a full cash bar as well as more food options including extra helpings of the wildly popular homemade Paella (sold out in 15 minutes last year). Finally, there will of course be plenty of prizes. Ranging from Portolove themed door prizes to Amazon gift cards and the coveted cheesecake. The funds raised by this event will benefit the Goettingen Neighbors Group, a local nonprofit focused on the beautification of Portola’s Goettingen staircase. As you may recall from past posts, the group is working with a local artist to create a grassroots community art project on the stairs.

All the pertinent information is on the flyers posted above but here are a couple of additional tips:

Cash Only with the exception of the Bar & Portola merchandise (Bank of America ATM across the street)

Those who come in drag or a fabulous costume will be in good company and will receive a complimentary bingo card

Seeing as how this is San Francisco, children are welcome and encouraged to wear their favorite Halloween costume or dress up attire

Hope to see a lot of neighbors there, I’ll be int he blonde wig so say hello!
