Red alert, red alert we’re officially within the two week limit until RuPaul’s DragCon NYC 2017 and we couldn’t be more excited about it!

That’s why we spoke with Darienne Lake to get ALLLLLLLLLLL the T about where to go, what to buy, and everything else you could possibly think of relating to New York City.

So, while you have two weeks left to get your outfits in order, grab all your friends or get ready to #FindYourTribe, and start planning your adventures around New York City during DragCon NYC 2017!

Check out our interview with Darienne Lake below and be sure to snatch up your DragCon tickets NOW if you haven’t yet!

What’s your favorite place to catch a Drag Show in NYC?

“That’s the great thing about NYC, there is so much variety and going on. You can’t swing a dead rat without hitting some outrageous, artsy, non-homogenized drag queen.”

Where do YOU go for the best boy-watching in NYC?

“The subway. Always a cutie in full man spread mode.”

Do you have any hidden gem/secret NYC food spots?

“When I’m shopping for beads and baubles, I stop at Best Bagel on 35th St. REAL NY bagels, not “bagel shaped” bread you find in Delta SkyLounges.”

What’s your favorite place to go drag shopping (or regular shopping!) in NYC?

“Fabric district, since all I have nearby is Jo-Ann’s.”

No matter how tourist-y (or NOT!) what’s the number one thing that you must-do whenever you’re in NYC?

“Enjoy a broadway show and drag brunch. Orrrrrrr… Kick off a shoe, pull your dress above your head, and take a crime scene photo in Central Park.”

RuPaul’s DragCon NYC is happening at the Javits Center on September 9 & 10th.
