Michael’s Favorite Things This Holiday Season


Michael’s favorite things during the holidays include going to see the War on Christmas show and enjoying the lights on Capitol Hill. Historically Michael would spend much of the holiday season in drag as his alter ego DonnaTella. This year DonnaTella is a bit retired and chilling. And Michael will be out on the town enjoying all the good things.

The Downtown Seattle Association has put on some wonderful holiday markets.

Favorite place to go for food + drinks during the holidays?

The only place I can think of having done this in the past is Kim’s favorite…. LOL.

What brings you joy in Seattle during the holidays?

When I’ve performed for holiday shows, its always been wonderful to know the acts I’ve done have not only been well received but also remembered and tied to DonnaTella.

A few of Michael’s favorite things during the holidays include Disco Vinnie’s holiday light display.

Jaunt around the hill on a nice evening and see what’s what or Disco Vinnie’s place!
