Drag Tea at the Sofitel Hotel | 11 June 2022

This will mostly be a picture and video entry. On Saturday, I ventured into Philly for the Drag Tea at the Sofitel Hotel. Proceeds went to the William Way Center, an organization that means so much to my heart. It’s nice when hotels can help non-profits.

I wanted to get photos at Rittenhouse Square park, but unfortunately, once I hopped off the bus, it began to rain. I took shelter in Starbucks, charged my phone, had a gluten-free snack, and waited an hour until I had to begin my trek to the Sofitel.

Fortunately, it was only a five minute walk. Once I arrived at the hotel, concierge directed me to the tea room. As I waited, many women commented on my outfit. They loved it!

Ms. Sharon let me borrow the crown I wore to tea. She was delighted to hear that it was a show-stopper twice! Brittany Lynn, the host, came over to my table twice and had to tell me how fabulous I looked.

After tea, I met Tommy, and we headed back to my house. I love the selfies we took on the P&W at 69th St.

Saturday was so much fun! I had a lot of laughs and made new precious memories.

  1. Hi, Jessica Marie!

    Thanks for letting me tag along with you Saturday as you traveled to Philadelphia and attended the Drag Tea at the Sofitel Hotel. Gosh-darn, JM, I can see why you received compliments on your outfit. It’s beautiful! The white dress and rainbow crown made a stunning combination. You looked radiant – the belle of the ball – and that’s saying something at a function of this type! You collected many excellent pictures during the event. The best shots of all are the one of you holding the cup of tea, posing beneath the rainbow flag, posing with the Tina Turner drag queen, posing with the blonde giantess, the next picture of you in the foreground and other ladies seated at the table behind you, and the two taken after the tea when you met-up with Tommy. They are all H.B. keepers!

    I enjoyed listening to the performance of the 1944 song “You’re Nobody Till Somebody Loves You” which was popularized 20 years later in 1964 on a hit single by crooner Dean Martin.

    Yessum, you made an entrance and made a statement in that Pride ensemble. I’m so glad Saturday was a happy memory maker for you and for Tommy.

    Enjoy the rest of your week, dear friend JM!
