If you head to the Sir Francis Drake for brunch, you might make the mistake of hitting up Scala's Bistro to taste former season-four Top Chef contestant Jennifer Biesty's rustic Italian fare. But those in the know head to the hotel's Harry Denton's Starlight Room to share their eggs with a bunch of drag queens.

The five-year-old "Sunday's a Drag" adds some flair to the weekend brunch routine. Mimicking the old-time variety shows, "Sunday's a Drag" features decked-out drag queens performing stand-up comedy, doing impersonations and lip-syncing ditties.

One of the most popular parts of the 45-minute brunch performances is emcee Donna Sachet, a San Francisco icon. According to a hotel official, Donna is always a crowd-pleaser in her amazing gowns as she sashays around the room.

Of course, this is brunch, so you will also get a chance to chow down while you enjoy the live entertainment. The hotel offers a buffet that includes made-to-order omelettes, prime rib, salmon with hollandaise, French toast, bacon, fresh squeezed juices and fruit salad.

Most of the 18-and-older shows sell out, so be sure to reserve your tickets several weeks in advance. Tickets cost $44.95.
