Happy Pride!

The Bitchiest drag queens are BACK!; imported all the way from beautiful Palm Springs, to celebrate Venice Pride weekend!  Join us for one BIG BITCHY SHOW!   Arrive between 10:00 a.m.  and 11:00 a.m., with the show starting at 11:00. Your experience ticket includes a welcome cocktail, our house made scones and fabulous two course brunch and of course a FABULOUS SHOW!

After the show, walk down to the Pride festival at the Venice Beach recreation center.  It’s going to be a blast, so bring lots of $1 bills and buckle your seatbelts because it’s going to be a bumpy ride. Happy Pride!



About James Beach: 

James’ Beach has been an iconic Venice Beach restaurant since it was opened in 1996 by Venice locals James Evans and Daniel Samakow. We’re located a ½ block from world famous Venice Beach.

The quintessential Venice, neighborhood restaurant and bar, James’ Beach immediately gained a reputation for great food, drinks, an award-winning wine list plus marvelous people watching. L.A. Times food critic, Irene Virbila wrote that the straightforward cuisine, friendly service, and beach ambiance made James’ Beach “as comfortable as a favorite sweater.”  Visit

See you at the June 3-5 for Venice Pride Festival and Parade!
