The drag ladies of the Armorettes pulled on their bonnets and strapped on cocktail wieners and exercise balls for their annual Drag Races on Sunday.
A crowd of hundreds turned out in the parking lot of Ansley Square in Midtown for games, bonnet contest, Jell-O shots and more. This year the event was hosted by Oscar's, where the Armorettes perform on Sundays since their departure from Burkhart's in February. Readers of the Georgia Voice have named the annual show Best Charity Benefit.
Also on Sunday, the owners of Oscar's announced they bought Burkhart's and will soon re-open the bar.
