The heat from spotlights often causes makeup to run, leading thespians to don excessive powder and soccer cleats to avoid slipping on puddles of mascara. View theater pros in action with today’s Groupon: for $49, you get one VIP ticket to The 12 Drags of Christmas at Fifth Avenue (a $100 value), presented by Equality for A Cause on Saturday, December 3 at Fifth Avenue Bar in Royal Oak. Hors d’oeuvres and drinks are served starting at 6:30 p.m., and showtime commences at 8 p.m.

The 12 Drags of Christmas unites headlining drag performers, film stars, drinks, hors d’oeuvres, and a silent auction to benefit Mittens for Detroit and the Ruth Ellis Center. Patrons saunter into the event greeted by trays of preshow nibbles and complimentary samples of Hard Luck Candy vodka before making their way to their seats. Emceed by drag comedian Miss Coco Peru, the stage lights up with eight with performances by female impersonators from across the country, including Michigan's National Entertainer of the Year Spacee Kadet.

Film and television actress Erin Cummings takes a break from filming ABC’s Pan Am to stop by and infuse the evening with her celebrity bona fides. A silent auction generates charity proceeds by featuring items from local boutiques, salons, and eateries and two tickets to So You Think You Can Dance, and it raises awareness of nefarious social problems, including discourteous cell-phone use in public areas such as restaurants and cell-phone stores.


At Five15's weekend bingo matches, players don't come to win a jackpot or to appease their grandmothers. They come for the drag queen hostesses and their good-natured abuse, adult humor, and vivacity. A rotating roster of queens includes Sabin, Carol Lee, and the acerbic comedienne Trixie Deluxxe. Clustered around round tables, sipping smoothies or chai lattes from the full coffee bar, the patrons of Drag Queen Bingo defy categorization—gay, straight, men, women, and even the occasional 90-year-old, according to the Detroit Free Press. Each patron is fair game for the hosts' humorous darts, especially when they pick up their prizes. Historically, adult-themed prizes have included mugs and T-shirts. Detroit Free Press quotes a patron as observing, "It's not my mother's bingo. It's nobody's mother's bingo."
