Burkhart's always adds a touch of "RuPaul's Drag Race" flavor to its show lineups. But for Pride, the bar boosted its stellar local cast with some special "Drag Race" guest stars.
On Friday during Femme Fatale, Ivy Winters (Season 5) joined local "Drag Race" competitor Phoenix (Season 3). On Saturday, Shangela (Seasons 2 and 3) joined the Synergy cast, which also includes Nicole Paige Brooks (Season 2) (top photo second from right).
