Hayne Suthon's friends and loved ones are gathering tonight to celebrate the life of the owner and operator of restaurant/drag club Lucky Cheng's.
Suthon died on June 9 after a battle with breast cancer. The New Orleans native would have turned 58 today.
The gathering, "Hayne's Birthday, Life Celebration & Finale BBQ EXTRAVAGANZA," starts at 6 in Metzler Park, on East First Street between First Avenue and Avenue A. Later, the group will migrate to Lucky Cheng's on West 52nd Street.

Suthon opened the Roman-themed Cave Canem at 24 First Ave. in 1987. The space became Lucky Cheng's in 1993.
