If you’re not travelling to Sydney for this year’s Mardi Gras parade, you’re invited to join in the celebrations at Brisbane’s Sportsman Hotel.
Sporties is throwing a Mardi Gras party on Saturday, March 2, with free entry all night and a live stream of this year’s parade on the big screen from 6pm.
The venue’s restaurant will be open from 5:30pm to 9pm for a great meal.
That night, brand new drag stage show Capriccios ’77, starring Dame Liz Taylor, Gina Vanderpump, Lexa Pro and Betty Knives, will debut at 10:30pm, midnight and 1:00am.

The 41st annual Sydney Mardi Gras festivities kicked off last Friday, and will culminate in the annual parade and party on Saturday, March 2.
A live stream of 2019 Mardi Gras parade will be available online on SBS On Demand and the SBS Twitter account on the Saturday.
