Dragnificent finale crowns a winner at Midtown Tavern

And then there was one. Orchid took the honors Tuesday at the finale of the Dragnificent competition series. 

Dragnificent began in 2012 as a rebrand of Dragnique. It’s settling in nicely after the move from the now-closed Jungle to Midtown Tavern.

Orchid (top photo) outlasted Mystery Meat, Electra Bell and Molly Rimswell in the final performances (photos below) of the popular drag series. Congrats to the new queen of queens!
