Stop me if you’ve heard this one: two drag queen walk into a sausage shop. And a fun time is had by all. But no, this is not a joke. It’s the unique idea devised by Melissa Khoury, one of the Lady Butchers behind Saucisson, the famed butchery and lunch spot in Cleveland’s Slavic Village. Dubbed “The Sunday Matinee Sausage Party,” the monthly event is a hands-on, sausage-making, drag-entertaining extravaganza. Needless to say, meat puns abound.
Sometimes, all you need is paint (and maybe a little love, too) to create safer, more pedestrian-friendly streets.
