Karry On - Melbourne San Francisco

Jemima Handful, Jessica James and Amanda Monroe

The event took place at Beneath Driver Lane, a speakeasy in Melbourne’s CBD and included San Francisco staples such as clam chowder served in bread bowls to mimic the world-renowned Boudin Bakery at Pier 39.

Other San Francisco demonstrations through the event included three drag queens named Jessica James, Amanda Monroe and Jemima Handful who welcomed the guests and entertained the crowd with a musical performance and a San Francisco themed version of The Price is Right for the prizes.

Finally, Wes Leslie, musician, and Founder of Wild SF Tours flew out from San Francisco to join the event as a roaming storyteller sharing the meaning behind the term “Sugar Daddy” that originated in San Francisco.

The event ended in a special surprise giveaway for two winners. The first winner was Jennifer Mikkelsen of Travel Counsellors who won a trip to San Francisco, Sonoma County and South Lake Tahoe and the second winner was Karen Scharnbock of APT Touring who won a trip to San Francisco, Napa Valley and South Lake Tahoe.  AMAZING!
