Is your vehicle in need of a wash? The Cuff has you/it/them covered/not covered on Sunday 2 – 5pm with Hot Crossed Buns and Drag Car Wash. The car wash is a fundraiser for the Imperial Court of Seattle’s scholarship fund. “Enjoy the sights of sexy men and some of the fiercest drag queens out there getting all dirty to get your car clean.” We’d love to post the NSFW promo poster here for your appreciation but, um, butts.
