RuPaul just won huis first Emmy (Finally!) and RuPaul’s Drag Race All Stars‘s second season is underway. It’s the time of RuPaul, so for this week’s Happy Hour Hotline we’ve found five places where you can watch Drag Race and grab some drinks in honor of Ru.
Happy hour from 5 to 8 p.m. with the specials changing daily. Grab a few drinks and then settle in at 8 p.m. when the show starts. 3 hours of happy hour is plenty of time, right?
Get your Drag Race fix at the cash only, eclectically decorated Little Miss Whiskey’s. Finish the night with a post-episode dance party, at which you can marvel at your inability to move gracefully after watching others do way better moves in way higher heels.
Head over to Duplex Diner’s happy hour at 6 p.m., which includes free tater tots at the bar. Come for the tots, stay for the All Stars. Come back to Duplex on Sundays for happy hour from 2 to 5 p.m.
Not only can you catch the episode at Number Nine, but you can also partake in Drag Race trivia, commercial break jams and drinks specials including $3 Absolut. The whole evening is hosted by D.C.’s own Ba’Naka, and is basically a guaranteed good time.
While Town Danceboutique is closed on Thursdays when Drag Race airs, keep the spirit of RuPaul going into your weekend by heading to Town on Friday night. Their weekly drag show starts at 10:30 and is preceded by a Bear Happy Hour starting at 6 p.m. which features $3 Budweiser, rail drinks and draft pints. Added bonus: you’ve seen most of the drag queens on the show at Town.
