Tickets are $10 through April 1st, $25 from April 2nd-May 15th, and $35 through the day of the show.

This show is a fundraiser for a local organization that helps our community.

In the past, some of the citizens of Amarillo have not been too friendly when it has come to drag show.  In fact, a more recent show show called A Drag Queen Christmas was in Amarillo, and for some reason, it warranted a letter to the citizens of Amarillo from our Mayor.  I guess the reason for this was it was a city facility.  Let's hope our newly elected Mayor won't feel the same need to write a letter to the citizens of Amarillo about a drag show.

This event isn't happening at a city facility, but it will probably garner some not-so-nice sentiments.   So, this is where I will say, if you don't have anything nice to say or do, please do not say or do anything at all.

Say You're From Amarillo Without Saying You're From Amarillo

Amarillo is a pretty quirky place. We've got the Big Texan, the weird signs, and (obviously) the famed Cadillac Ranch. But more than that, there's a distinct culture of close-knit community, eccentrics, a thriving arts scene, and much more.

The point is, living in Amarillo is a unique experience. Because of that, it's really pretty easy to tell who's a native or a long-time resident. And I can prove it.

Here's a couple of ways you can say you're from Amarillo.....without saying you're from Amarillo.
