RuPaul’s DragCon NYC is finally THIS WEEKEND!
AHHHHHHH! Can you even handle the excitement? You’ve gotten your tickets, right? Phew. Great. You should also snatch up your tickets to the Friday and Saturday night parties for some extra after-hours fun at DragCon NYC!
Now that THAT is out of the way, we’ve got some absolutely AHHHMAZING tips about New York City courtesy of one of the queens who lives there… Miss Thorgy Thor!
We spoke with the Brooklyn queen about places to catch a drag show, the best boy watching spots, and SO MUCH MORE!
So, check out our interview with the one and only Thorgy Thor about all things New York City below and start planning the best. weekend. EVER!
What’s your favorite place to catch a Drag Show in NYC?
“Where to begin?! Go see Tina Burner where ever she is performing. The Ritz in Hells Kitchen. Macri Park in Brooklyn. “
Where do YOU go for the best boy-watching in NYC?
“Greenpoint, Brooklyn. That’s why I moved here!”
Do you have any hidden gem/secret NYC food spots?
“Milk and Honey is great in Greenpoint. Thai Cafe on Manhattan Avenue literally has the best Thai food you will ever eat. But nothing beats the Williamsburg Market during the summer… Every food truck is there to sample, along with vendors so you can shop till you drop!”
What’s your favorite place to go drag shopping (or regular shopping!) in NYC?
“Artists and Fleas is always good to score some vintage finds. Beacons closet is a go-to for me as well to find some fancy vintage sequin fantasies! Or just go shopping at ALotta Stuff live auction that I throw the third Thursday of every month at Metropolitan Bar, Brooklyn!”
No matter how tourist-y (or NOT!) what’s the number one thing that you must-do whenever you’re in NYC?
“Have an all-day margarita drinking, blanket on the grass, charade playing day with friends at McCarren Park while watching hot men play competitive dodgeball.”
