Sunday Drag Brunch at Luxury Hotel in New Orleans Celebrates Southern Decadence

Project Lazarus to Benefit From Those Lavishing in Delightful 'Tempt'ations

NEW ORLEANS, LA--(Marketwire - Aug 23, 2012) - Lavishing in delightful 'Tempt'ations at a sophisticated choice among New Orleans, Louisiana restaurants will be a highlight of Southern Decadence activities on Sunday, September 2, 2012 as The Saint Hotel, Autograph Collection hosts a Drag Brunch to benefit Project Lazarus.

Located inside one of the most elegant hotels on Canal Street, Tempt Restaurant will be the site of a Sunday Drag Brunch that, in addition to traditional Southern Louisiana flavors, will feature drag performances for entertainment. Set amidst the elegant decor of the Marriott's chic boutique hotel in New Orleans, Louisiana; two meal seatings have been scheduled so there'll be plenty of opportunity for demanding attendance. Recently introduced by the Pink Traveler as "The French Quarter's hottest new hotel," this exciting event offers Southern Decadence attendees the opportunity to capture a glimpse of the hotel and its impressive interior while partaking in one of Southern Decadence Sunday's most significant events. Notably, "the place to be" for a frolicking good time, the fun and frolicking will be outdone only by the remarkable offering of cuisine, carefully prepared with the freshest ingredients under careful direction of Executive Chef Marcus Woodham.

While the event promises fun for everyone who attends, 15 percent of the proceeds will provide hope and promise to clients of Project Lazarus, a New Orleans residential facility which provides assisted living to those in the Gulf Coast region living with AIDS. Founded in 1985, Project Lazarus not only provides transitional and permanent housing, but oversees supervised independent living and emergency shelter as well as emotional wellness, therapeutic services and a substance abuse program to those in need.
