“Dog” years are commonly measured as seven human years, so that 7-year-old pooch is the equivalent of a 49-year-old.

What do you reckon the equivalent would be for gay bars? We’re not going to go there, other than to say that Lips, the Fort Lauderdale drag dining destination, celebrated 15 years on Dec. 12 and it’s going strong.

The gay glitterati were on hand for the A-list party, which included appearances by some of the drag palace’s most popular performers, including Amanda Austin, Franchesque Richards, Nicolette and Velvet LeNore. 

Austin will present her special Holiday Spectacular with the Dragettes on Dec. 15 and 22 with a special Christmas Eve show on Dec. 24. Lips is located at 1421 E. Oakland Park Blvd. in Fort Lauderdale.

Cindy Lou Who?

Only one weekend remains to catch Matthew Lombardo’s comedy “Who’s Christmas,” at Empire Stage.

Local comedian and actress Sheba Mason stars as Cindy Lou Who, the innocent little Whoville resident who runs into the Grinch on Christmas Eve. The New York Times called the one-woman show “a raunchy riff on Dr. Seuss’s yuletide tale … The little tyke has become a bottle-blonde adult who spends her days in a trailer appointed with Airstream functionality and seasonal kitsch … a holiday offering that dirties up Christmas while ultimately reveling in its spirit.” 

Catch “Who’s Christmas” at Empire Stage, 1140 N. Flagler Dr. in Fort Lauderdale, Dec. 16 – 18. Tickets are $30 at EmpireStage.com. Use promo code EARLY to save $3.
