Maryland native Joshua Grannell is a fourteen year Bay Area resident famous in part for performing as the popular drag performer-emcee-actor Peaches Christ. Peaches’ reign over her Midnight Mass movie event series that started in 1998 came to a mascara laden end in 2009. He confessed via phone interview that his alt ego, Peaches Christ, would eat at Little Orphan Andy’s. “That is Peaches’ favorite!” Grannell said. “(I) can be in drag and eat there at 3 a.m. Peaches loves their Monte Cristo.”
John Waters said that he thinks of himself as a “Filth Elder” more so than the “Pope of Trash” nickname he received from William Burroughs. Waters’ elder reference is perhaps his way of acknowledging that he is in his sixties. I emailed The Filth Elder last week to find out the food-centric spots he likes to frequent when he lives in San Francisco. Aside from his picks in the post, you can also plan on catching Waters at his City Arts & Lectures appearance happening on May 25th for his Role Models book tour…San Francisco is the first stop on the tour.
