About six years ago a pair of talented drag queens, along with an entire bunch of local performers, came to the Hamburger Mary’s in Orlando on a Sunday to entertain diners during a quiet brunch. Those queens were Ginger Minj and The Minx. They, along with their Broadway Brunch Bunch, have gone back every Sunday performing a send-up to live theater and making Hamburger Mary’s Broadway Brunch one of the most successful and beloved brunches across the country.

Ginger Minj left Broadway Brunch after appearing on season seven of “RuPaul’s Drag Race,” and now the announcement has come that the other half of Broadway Brunch’s original dynamic duo is leaving as well. In a Facebook post, Hamburger Mary’s owner wrote “I am sad that we will be losing one of the most talented, and more importantly one of the nicest people I have ever met.”

Hitting the G Spot

Well the other heel in the oversized stiletto has dropped and things are now official. As we previously reported from multiple reliable sources, Southern Nights Orlando had shown an interest in purchasing Ybor’s G. Bar. As of Memorial Day weekend, G. Bar will be nothing more than a blurry alcohol-induced memory of years past and will be under new ownership and management as Southern Nights Tampa.
