Fiddlehead plans special guest curbside deliveries

It’s generally understood that if you walk into Fiddlehead restaurant in the Uptown Arts District of Michigan City, you’re going to have fun. But a different kind of fun awaits this weekend – all from the comfort, and safety, of your vehicle.

After COVID – 19 forced the cancellation of the restaurant’s planned Easter Drag Brunch, owner Aaron O'Reilly began brainstorming ways to bring back the fun while closely following the CDC’s guidelines of social distancing and enforcement of facemasks and other protective wear. And then it came to him, let the drag queens deliver curbside service!

This Saturday at Fiddlehead, you can enjoy delicious pre-ordered food, delivered safely to your cars by local drag stars Wilma Fingerdo, Dena Love Richards-Stratton, and Jayda Pill!

In this time of uncertainty, one thing remains unchanged –Wilma still believes she is the prettiest, even with a mask on!

We’re not the only ones excited for this twist on curbside service.

“Don't try and kiss me! I’m social distancing from you!” Wilma Fingerdo wrote on Facebook as she replied to excited fans and followers looking forward to Saturday’s regulated event.

“Car hopping in stiletto's and heels! I've gotta see this!” Sue Waskow wrote on Facebook.

“OMG how fun! There may be a drive to Michigan City in my future this weekend!” wrote Amy Nikruto on Facebook.

Drive by the restaurant, pick up your food curbside, and say hello to the fabulous queens yourself!
