It’s that time of year again, when the Society for the Legitimization of the Ubiquitous Gastropod convenes to crown its new slimy leader. On Aug. 8, the SLUG Queen Competition and Coronation oozes once more. Old Queen Professor Doctor Mildred Slugwak Dresselhaus will step down, and a new SLUG Queen will take her place, decided by Old Queens and celebrity judges Laura Lee Laroux and Sean Cuellar. According to the official website of the SLUG Queen competition, “SLUG Queens are selected on the basis of talent, costume and ability to ad lib witty answers to inane questions.” All hail the queen!
The SLUG Queen Competition & Coronation takes place 6:30pm Friday, Aug. 8, Park Blocks, 8th & Oak. FREE. — Amy Schneider
