Following on its insanely popular brunch house party La Boum every Saturday and the annual Bastille Day French Maid Relay Race, L’Enfant Café and Bar offers a new social dining event on select Sundays each month. Speak Easy transforms the space into a Prohibition Era venue -- complete with back door entrance, dim lighting and drawn shades -- serving drinks, a three-course dinner and a live show that’s very of this century, with singing drag queens, comedians and DJs spinning dance tunes. New York singing drag queen legend Joey Arias hosts most shows, including the show this Sunday, Feb. 19, when Paddy Boom, former drummer for the Scissor Sisters, will DJ, spinning a mix including everything from disco to glam rock to house to reggae. Sunday, Feb. 19. L’Enfant Café and Bar, 2000 18th St. NW. Reservations are required; cost is $50 for the 7 p.m. dinner show, or $10 plus a two-drink minimum for the 10:30 p.m. late show.
