In remembrance of the late and great Betty White, Artifact Events, 4325 N. Ravenswood Ave., will host a Golden Girls-themed Drag Brunch on Saturday, Feb. 26.
Attendees can enjoy bottomless mimosas, musical drag performances, sketches, photo ops, and a brunch during one of two seatings. Doors will open at 10:45 a.m. and 1:30 p.m. for the two shows.
Also, as a tribute to the White, organizers will be partnering with a local animal shelter for an on-site charity raffle.
There will be three plates available: brunch and gluten-free (with items such as Gruyere, bacon and spinach frittata; sweet potato hash; and vanilla bean cheesecake or panna cotta), and vegan (tofu scramble with sliced green onion; vegan falafel waffle; and fresh berry quinoa salad with citrus honey drizzle).
