Retro Game Show Night Presents Family Fuss

(Doors at 6pm, show at 7pm; event ends around 9pm)

Retro Game Show Night is hosted by Tempest DuJour, the “Delicate Flower of the Desert.” She is Tucson’s (and possibly Arizona’s) largest drag queen and has a blazing wit that’s just as big as she is. At RGSN, we play vintage television game shows with special “celebrity” guests and real contestants from the audience. This month, we’re playing Family Fuss – this is definitely not your grandma’s game show!
