Greater Palm Springs is a place like no other when it comes to Drag. You can almost always see hair, heels, and drag shows can be enjoyed by everyone looking to have a great time. These are inclusive spaces where our community can come together. Take note of the following standouts:
The area’s brunches are worthy of an Instagram post — or three — here. Oscar’s stands out for so many reasons. It’s a downtown institution, but on the performance front, you get two, not one, brunch show days to choose from. Sunday’s classic morning drag brunch features some of the most outrageous performers to grab a microphone. Bottomless mimosas are par for the course here, too, but take note of the level of detail each performer takes — from the stellar clothes adorning their bodies to the sheer ferocity of their exceptional talent. The other brunch option — in case you want to make an entire weekend out of sheer unbridled fun — is Saturday’s brunch show. Enjoy brunch inside Oscar’s lovely showroom while the champagne is poured from shirtless men, with more performances to follow. Come back in the evening for Sunday T-Dance where you'll hear sounds of disco dance era.
