anna and eppiflo

Anna Fylactic and Eppi Nefrin are your Drag Culinary Tour Guides and all-around foodies for many popular vacation spots including Palm Springs. Anna is the sophisticated one; she “imbibes”, whereas Eppi just drinks her A$$ off! Anna & Eppi are our square dance foodies in the desert to alert conventioneers to certain eateries in and around Palm Springs.

Messages from Anna & Eppi:

Don’t forget to consider your square dance needs with the convention Meal Deals so you can continue to burn up the dance floor with our cousin, Floorin "Flo" Motion who will post details on dancing and convention entertainment events on this same blog.

Anna & Eppi’s Gastronomical Adventures

Sweetie, darlings: See our Issue #1 below to welcome you to the Palm Springs eateries, and then read Issue #2.

Continue to follow the Gastronomical Adventures of Anna & Eppi as they provide convention goers with some of their favorite spots for imbibing and dining in and around Palm Springs. Watch for their antics in our newsletters, website updates and on the convention’s Facebook page.

Floorin "Flo" Motion, yet another drag blog persona, is a close cousin of Anna and Eppi and will highlight some of the area activities in a campy fun and lively format to alert convention goers to the many entertainment plans we have lined up for them.
