Lupe Cervantes as Lupita at La Costa's drag revue.
Never miss a local story.
Lupe Cervantes confirms that he's sold La Costa Mexican Restaurant, the home of downtown Tacoma's finest drag revue.
Starting Monday, a new owner takes over. Cervantes said he'll stick around for about a month to help the new owner transition. He said the new owner is not interested in continuing the drag shows.
Cervantes said he'll take a break from the business before looking for a new location away from downtown.
My TNT colleague Niki Sullivan -- who's just a tad more comfortable than I am when it comes to making public proclamations about digging men who dress like women -- reports that new owner Kat Flynn says she'd like to continue the drag shows, but that she and Cervantes haven't come to terms.
Flynn said she'll rename the restaurant Cheshire and serve American comfort food.
