Kicking off Matt's birthday celebration

As I do every year at this time, I vacationed in Las Vegas — it’s a good way to escape the holidays as a singleton, and spend time with my second family, the Yoneyamas. Just two weeks prior, our twitter friend Matthew Erickson (@LhccMatt) and Rob Ola Kawaa (@RobOlaKawaa) had moved from Maui to Vegas, so we spent time with them, as well.

It was a reunion of sorts, as Julie Yoneyama (@JulieYakacoco), Matt, and Tioni Taylor (@TioniTaylor) — who works at the Golden Nugget — all worked together at Old Lahaina Luau at one time. It was good timing, too, as it was Matt’s birthday. What could we do with Matt that would be oh-so-Vegas? Celebrate at a big drag queen bar, of course.

Drink & Drag

Neonopolis in downtown Las Vegas needed a boost with something that would draw people to what should have been a bustling mall. Drink & Drag, its newest tenant, has breathed new life into the building.

Love it ! RuPaul would be so proud. They would fit in with his Drag Race reality tv show/contest.

Delicate Blossom:  Reminiscent of "The Glades" here in Honolulu.  It was quite a show...of course, in those days, the queens did not have a lot of the stuff they use now to enhance their "illusion".  Modern meds are amazing.  Some of them put real women to shame.  The pictures of the ones in Thailand are unbelievable.  I hope I never get drunk enough to go through "The Crying Game"!  The shows of "La Cage" and "Priscilla" are good enough.

 @turkfontaine did you notice how beautiful some of them were? So glamorous. Even the gogo dancers are at a standard that men aspire to be.

 @Annoddah_Dave Oh my gosh! I do remember The Glades, although it was around when I was a kid. These guys were beautiful......

 @MyongChoi LOL yes! That's what they are called on the Drink & Drag site, "illusionists."
