Kick up your heels for Dorothy's Sister

Posted in: Events
By Matt Akersten - 4th August 2008

Look out, Doreen!
It's been a full-on year of high camp at Ponsonby's fruitiest destination, so it's time to celebrate a first birthday with three nights of fabulosity…

Party #1 – Friday 8 August 2008

Dress like Doreen Night!

We're all jealous of Dorothy's Sister hostess Doreen and her effortless glamour – but who knew it was so easy to steal her look?'s spies have uncovered a leaked document, found pinned to Doreen's wardrobe. A shocked Doreen phoned us urgently to beg us not to reveal her beauty secrets… whoops! Too late now! Here they are:


So head to The Warehouse or raid your Nana's closet and we'll see you when you join the Dot's team on Friday from 8pm for their Dress Like Doreen Night – with a prize for the best Doreen-A-Like!

Good luck to all those entering, we appreciate the effort you're putting on. Doreen's look may cost up to $20 to replicate… but the results will be worth it. Just promise us you won't let the attention/gifts you receive from illegible men go to your head too much.

Vera & Doreen
Party #2 – Saturday 9 August 2008

Vera & Doreen host a glittering night of Drag

Drag divas will come from far and wide will shimmer under the Dot's Sister spotlight. VIP bubbles and nibbles begin at 6pm, then it's showtime from 8:30pm.

The line-up includes:

Auckland's 'Hudson & Halls' of drag - Buffy & Bimbo

Still in the running to be NZ's Next Top Model Kornisha

Rea the exotic Belly Dancer

1960's throwback Daphne Bush (no doubt doing Petula Clark's Downtown)

Hamilton's accident-prone drag royalty Miss Glorious Sole

Christchurch's naughty minx Miss Mole

Plus Craig Webster vocalist, Joe King, Leanne Page vocalist, Nstinct and Miss Que.

Not since Wigs on the Waterfront and Wigorama has Auckland seen such a spectacular diva line-up. Look out for awards and giveaways throughout the evening, too.

DJ Mauri
Party #3 – Sunday 10 August 2008

T Dance Rave with DJ Mauri

Urge bar's DJ Mauri is bringing his beats to a special Sunday T-Dance at Dot's – but you'll have to ask at the bar in advance for entry to this free VIP event, as there are only 50 tickets available in the limited-capacity venue.

Join them from 3pm – and DJ Mauri will start from 5pm, going until 8pm. An exciting way to end the weekend!

Happy Birthday Dorothy's Sister! See you at 265 Ponsonby Road this weekend.
