Dragtastic – Provincetown’s Party Central

TheMoment.blogs.NYTimes.com – By Rocky Casale

If you’re planning a trip to Provincetown, Mass., this summer – and you’re new to the Cape Cod town’s particular brand of seaside culture – there’s no better initiation than spending Sunday nights at Kook. This weekly themed party held at the Grotta Bar is celebrating its 15th anniversary as the place where a hodgepodge of music, people, performances and provocations somehow come together and shine. “When we started out, we wanted to do away with thumpy dance music and have it be an evening without rhyme or reason,” says Scott Martino, aka the tough and lusty Penny Champagne, who has been hosting Kook since its inception.
