Friends and fans of Juanita MORE! know that she’s a big food person, and she’s always posting Facebook/Tumblr photos of her empanadas and arroz con gandule. She submitted her San Francisco Diet to Grub Street last fall, proving that even our city’s drag queens like to lunch at Zuni and insist on Four Barrel coffee. Now Ms. MORE! has launched her own food blog, Juanita Eats Out, which is an amusing compendium of her dining experiences as well as her home recipes. And recognizing her cooking acumen, GayCities recruited her for a promotional event in which she’ll cook a private dinner for eight people at Farm:Table for the person who best answers the question, “What is the best San Francisco night out for dinner and drinks?”

The contest is sponsored by Absolut, so there’ll likely be some drinking involved. Entries are due by August 11. And if you want to get on her good side, you may want to refer back to the S.F. Diet to learn about her tastes.
