It's not even a week into the new year and San Diego is already gearing up for Pride. It was announced that festival tickets are on presale for those who want to save a few dollars before the July event.

But until then, there is still so many things to do that makes San Diego one of the biggest LGBT entertainment destinations in the country. This week we feature some of the best drag shows and events in the zip code. Get ready to get dragged into the new year! 

But first, we eat. 

Resolve to Eat Better

Ring in the first of the year with some great food at the Crest Cafe. Whether you have resolved to eat healthier or just get some comfort food in your belly, this family owned and operated restaurant has delicious options for whatever you're in the mood for. Plus choose from a great selection of cocktails, beer, and wine. Remember this is the restaurant featured on Guy Fieri's Diners, Drive-ins and Dives. He took a special liking to their famous Better Butter Burger and so should you.

The Drag Creme of The Crop

On January 3, 2019, the unwittingly hilarious Dina Martina will once again descend upon San Diego and grace the elegantly-appointed confines of Martinis Above Fourth with a fantastic show titled Dina Martina in ' Creme de la Dregs.' Doors open at 6 pm, showtime at 8 pm.

Drag Race All-Stars Viewing Party

The San Diego DIVAS are not slowing down for 2019. In fact, they are giving guests a special treat by hosting their Divas RuPaul Viewing Party at Rich's. This show combines the fun of watching the fourth installment of Drag Race All-Stars with the excitement of a live show. Whether you agree or disagree with the judge's assessments of the series queens, the live show never disappoints. Kickxy Vixen-Styles is your host and along with the talented cast of queens this is a Friday night like no other. 


Hosted by Keex Rose and Naomi Daniels, it's time for Bitchy Bingo at Lips These girls know how to play with some balls! The evening starts with a fabulous drag show and finishes off with a few rounds of bingo, with your chance to win fabulous prizes! B-8, but don't be late for this evening show! 

Get Dragged into Church on Sunday! 

Sunday Dragalicious Gospel Brunch at Lips is hosted by Sister Nun-of-the-Above (Tootie) with the Sisters of Sequin!
