The Ultimate Miami Drag Queen

Who is the Ultimate Miami Drag Queen? Did you even know there was such a title?

We'll find out who it is 9 p.m. Saturday at Stage 305 at Magic City Casino in Miami, where the most recent in a series of Ultimate Miami competitions will name the king of drag queens.

Seven South Floridians will vie for something really nice to stuff into their purse: a $5,000 first-prize check.

The evening's entertainment will include a performance by drag entertainer Chad Michaels. Originally a Cher impersonator, Michaels was runner-up on the fourth season of "RuPaul's Drag Race" and won "RuPaul's All Stars Drag Race." Also performing is R&B artist Thelma Houston, whose best-known song is "Don't Leave Me This Way."

Celebrity gossip blogger Perez Hilton, a Miami native, is the guest judge. The two regular judges are Where Magazine South Florida editor Aurora Rodriguez, and 610 WIOD radio's Manny Munoz.

The Ultimate Miami competitions so far have chosen the city's best bartender, best band and best singer.

Tickets are available at and or by calling 305-460-6579. Entry is $40 and includes a drink and free hors d'oeuvres within the first hour. Considering the night's topic, lonely single men attending are warned to be cautious about chatting up females they don't know.
