Julia Mixing It Up with a Lot of Gay Guys in Tuxes at the Castro Tonight
So maybe Meryl Streep shouldn't lose sleep worrying that her performance in Julie & Julia is in danger of being eclipsed by an even more definitive Child. Still, when the S.F. Gay Men's Chorus hits the stage at the Castro Theater tonight for it's annual Home for the Holidays Christmas Eve concerts, they won't be without a certain husky-voiced food icon. Chorus executive director Teddy Witherington told SFoodie Julia debuted earlier this month at a concert in Modesto, for a bit during a song called "Fruitcake." "Julia makes a fruitcake in the course of the number," Witherington said, "adding ingredients including Mount Gay Rum." Sweet. And given the allegations that the real Julia wasn't exactly a fag hag, her Castro debut could be viewed as a taste of sweet justice.

There are three performances of Home for the Holidays tonight at the Castro (429 Castro at Market), at 5, 7, and 9 p.m. It's too late to get the $20-$30 tickets online; score 'em at the door.
