Stonewall

Stonewall

It’s trashy, it’s stinky, it’s possibly on the verge of being closed down by health inspectors—and I absolutely love Stonewall, which has a chintzy appeal that cannot be denied. While it has entertainment every night of the week, my pick is Polly’s Follies, a long-running amateur drag show that draws in curious customers every Sunday. It’s hosted by local drag legend Polly Petrie, who drinks champagne direct from a teakettle. How can you not love that?
