Big Wigs Live! Preview Party Tonight!

If you're in Chicago and you're bored with hibernating inside your house waiting for the 6 inches of ice barnacled to the sidewalk to melt, head over to the Crimson Lounge at the Hotel Sax tonight for a free - - yep, that's right FREE!! - - Preview Party for Big Wigs Live!, a huge new fundraiser for both Season of Concern and Equality Illinois.

And the best part of this Preview Party is not only will there be two live performance by some of the hottest drag queens in town, but also there is a Free Ten Cane Run Cocktail Hour from 6:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. I think it's a signature Ten Cane Rum cocktail that will be poured in your glass as many times as you want for that hour, so what's not to love about that?

The info from the Season of Concern site is below. If you're interested in goodies, we will be raffling off About Face Theatre tickets, Goodman tickets, restaurant certificates, at home massages, and we will be auctioning off some fabulous jewelry donated by my friend Cynthia Nash, as well as two tickets to the Chicago production of WICKED.

Oh, and Bloomingdale's just confirmed that they will be providing a little something for the gift bags we will be handing out to all those who purchase tickets to the Big Wigs Live! main event on June 23rd.

Yeah, we're fancy. We know. As Reba sings...

"I might have been born just plain white trash, but Fancy was my name!"

On June 23rd, acclaimed author Heather Haneman (a.k.a. Feather Handlesmen) and the fabulous dancers of BIG WIGS - Chicago's hot new drag performance company - will take the stage of the Vic Theater for the premiere of their much anticipated live show, but you won't have to wait that long if you join us on February 19th in the Crimson Lounge of Hotel Sax for the Big Wigs Live! VIP pre party!

Sponsored by Hotel Sax's (formerly the House Of Blues Hotel) Crimson Lounge, and Ten Cane Rum, all proceeds from the Big Wigs Live! pre party will benefit Season Of Concern and Equality Illinois.

And because her total fabulousness knows no bounds, Heather will also be donating 10% of the proceeds from all of the evening's sales of her debut book "
Big Wigs: Stories of a Straight Girl in a Drag Queen's World" to SOC and Equality Illinois!

Special guests slated to attend include national club icon Circuit MOM, Miss Kentucky Continental Plus 2007-2008 Mercedes, and Miss Continental Plus 2007 Tajma Hall!
