Lady Bunny and Flotilla DeBarge at L’Enfant’s Speak Easy

Following on its insanely popular brunch house party La Boum every Saturday and the annual Bastille Day French Maid Relay Race, L’Enfant Cafe and Bar offers this 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 artist legend Joey Arias co-produces the show, but while he does his run at Woolly Mammoth for Arias With A Twist, he’s lined up fellow New York drag singers to helm things. Next Sunday, April 29, he’s got Lady Bunny and Flotilla DeBarge. Most late shows end in a DJ dance party. Sunday, April 29. L’Enfant Cafe 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. Call 202-319-1800 or visit
