The love of food, music, drag and of course bingo will collide on Sunday, Aug. 4, during Ann Arbor Pride's Bingo Brunch at the Blue LLama Jazz Club. The event is a fundraiser for Ann Arbor's Jim Toy Community Center, which provides support for the local LGBTQ community, and will present featured guest Jujubee. Jujubee is a "RuPaul's Drag Race" fan favorite who appeared on the show in season 2 and during a season of "All Stars."
Leo Cartier Jr., Ann Arbor Pride co-director said he's excited that the event will highlight not only Jujubee's talents but allow the community to support the local LGBTQ community by attending.
"Ann Arbor Pride (formally OutFest) celebrating its 25th year, is excited to develop new relationships in the community, as this will be the biggest year yet," Cartier said. "We're excited to partner together with the Blue LLama Jazz Club."
The Club's Executive Chef Louis Goral has served critically acclaimed cuisine across the U.S. in locales like Washington, D.C., New York and Philadelphia. He said that the event will be a great way to familiarize Ann Arbor with Blue LLama's passion for culture and cuisine — all while supporting Ann Arbor Pride.
"We are thrilled to be a part of Ann Arbor Pride this year by hosting the incredible Jujubee at Blue LLama Jazz Club," Goral said. "It is our mission not only to share our love of food and love of music with the Ann Arbor community but to celebrate culture, diversity and inclusion."
The event will be held at 11:30 a.m. and again at 1:30 p.m. Tickets cost $35. To find out more about The Blue LLama Jazz Club visit bluellamaclub.com. More information about Ann Arbor Pride can be found at annarborpride.com.
