SF Treasure Hunt

SF Treasure Hunt

Saturday afternoon I was at Justin Herman Plaza for the start of the annual San Francisco Chinese New Year Treasure Hunt, where I saw these lovely ladies win the costume contest. Team Get Your Drag-On! was a Miss Chinatown beauty pageant, complete with emcee & stuffed dragon mascot. They wore sashes with names such as "Miss Chinese Playground" & "Miss Lead Based Paint." The beauty queens were advised not to wave above their tiaras. The prize was a cake. The team went on to place 2nd in the Master's Division of the hunt, though they were a good hour behind the winning team, rumored to be from Google. Contestants are not required to run in costume.

Great pic and great use of drag.

It was clear that this team was going to have no close competition in the costume content!

It's the Irish-American emcee in the tuxedo that really takes the costume ensemble into the realm of genius.

Like your "Gatsby" review.

I'll let the emcee know that the next time I see him!

Thanks for reading my thoughts on Gatsby. It was good seeing the Gatsby supers at the Symphony last night!
