When Blanche, Dorothy, Sophia and Rose lounged on the lanai of their Miami retirement community condo to sip chilled drinks and dispel witty jabs and well-earned pearls of wisdom, we were all right there with them. The beloved 1980’s sitcom The Golden Girls has been off-the-air for nearly 30 years and yet the spirit of the dynamic foursome lives on.
This Thursday, we’re channeling our favorite Miami retirees by clinking glasses with San Francisco’s own rendition of the beloved Florida foursome in Golden Girls LIVE— a virtual bash with San Francisco drag stars Heklina (Dorothy), Matthew Martin (Blanche), D’Arcy Drollinger (Rose), and Holotta Tymes (Sophia) inspired by Drinks on the Lanai: Cocktails, Mocktails and Cheesecake Inspired by the Golden Girls by Elouise Anders.
The comic quartet will perform one of their famous parodies of a Golden Girls Christmas Episode and do a reading of ‘Twas The Night Before Christmas, with a Golden Girls twist. We’ll also be joined by famed bartender and rum expert Shannon Mustipher who will whip up just the type of tiki cocktails that are perfect for drinking on the lanai.
Join us this Thursday, December 10th at 5 pm pst to sip cocktails, nibble on cheesecake and gab with Shannon and the Golden Girls, just as we would were we all sitting among the palms on their Miami lanai.
So don your Christmas sweaters and get ready for cheesecake. It’s time to settle into your patio chair and join the Golden Girls for drinks on the lanai.
