All The Beautiful (Wo)men

My parents own a fairly popular local Thai restaurant here in Orange County. Although it is family-style and away from main hub-ubs, it still attracts some well-to-do clientele (including Steven Spielberg's father, major producers from CBS and the VP from Billabong). However my mom (who is still rather young) has just retired from her day-job at a university and is already feeling antsy so she's making plans for a new restaurant.

This one is to be a more upscale, fancy restaurant and she wants to bring entertainers from Thailand to come entertain on a regular basis. This entertainment will include the usual singing, dancing, etc. But her Creme-de-la-Creme of ideas is to bring an entertainment that is popular in Thailand, but hasn't quite made it out here in Orange County. She wants to have Transvestite Beauty Pageants. Beautiful men parading around in beautiful gowns (and trust me, in Thailand they've got the art of transvestitism down pat...) for your dining enjoyment.

hee hee hee hee!! I can't stop giggling at the thought. I just think it all highly entertaining that my mom even came up with the idea, let alone is seriously considering it. I just don't know what kind of success it'll be down here in Republican Central. San Francisco, Vegas, New York....sure. But Irvine? She argues though that it'll be successful for exactly that reason: it's so unheard of here. Just have to come up with a good idea for a name for the restaurant...
