Drag Me to Palm Springs

These Queens Will Entertain You Throughout the Week

By Kevin Perry

Weekends are for amateurs. Show us a person who can party every damn day of the week and we’ll show you Palm Springs. After all, flamboyance has no schedule – let your fierce flag fly forever, honey! So let Palm Springs drag queens help you celebrate everyday.

So, pack your pantyhose and tuck in for a gurlwind tour through the brunches, bingos and boozy events just waiting around every corner of our happening hometown. The very best in Palm Springs drag awaits.

Sassy Sundays

The lord may have rested on the 7th day, but she didn’t have bills to pay, OK? Sundays in Palm Springs are packed with Palm Springs drag queen realness. You can’t swing a stiletto without hitting a fabulous performer, at which point you really should apologize for being so careless with your footwear.

Step out in style with the voluminous mimosa options at your manicured fingertips. Oscar’s is slinging grub and gab at their infamous Bitchiest Brunch shenanigans, where the menu calls for irreverence supreme. For a more laid back vibe, fry up some fun at Roly China Fusion’s PS Drag Brunch. Or to take your attitude to the next level, check in at PS Air. The feisty flight attendants in this towering throwback experience put on a 40,000-foot show in the convenience of Bouschet’s back room. You’ll be amazed at the first-class skills taking flight all around you!Rosemary-galore-Indoors

Settle in to an A May Zing Sunday brunch at Chill Bar.

As the sun goes down, your options just keep soaring. Comedy, couture and community are the Palm Springs drag headliners at Toucans Tiki Lounge, featuring the legendary Tommi Rose and her revolving roster of Playgirls. Be sure to book early because these tickets get deflowered fast!

September 2021 marks the cacophonous return of The Judy Show at Purple Room. Michael Holmes reprises his role as the boozy, pillsy, ballsy-yet-bosomy Judy Garland. Nobody is safe from her razor-sharp wit and substance-dulled perspective. The Judy Show truly is a hoot and a half!

Palm Springs Drag Manly Mondays

Drag your fine behind back to Toucans for Latin Fever Monday. Widely renowned as the “hottest show in the Valley,” the caliente aesthetic keeps you sashaying boldly through your Palm Springs fantasy. Hosts Jesus Coria and La Tal Monica are the emcees of OMG, so shed your inhibitions and don your most gagging gear!

Take It Easy Tuesday

Even Palm Springs drag royalty needs a night off every now and again. But if you simply can’t stay home on Tuesday, we get it. Local kweens may or may not descend on Tool Shed for musical theater bingo on Tuesday nights. Try your luck and you may get lucky! The festivities unfurl early (6-8pm), so you can get a good night’s sleep and rest up for another round of raunchiness.

Flip-Your-Wig Wednesdays

Hunters does humpday right. With two back-to-backless events, your midweek rules! Drag Me 2 Bingo rolls out at 6pm, followed closely by Spotlight All-Stars at 8:30pm. Miss Rusty Waters oversees the underbelly of gender bending transcendence calling out numbers.

Thigh-Slapping Thursdays

Kick-start the pre-weekend unapologetically with Playhouse at Toucans. Avant-garde lewks swirl around the party palace as the workday melts away, delivering you to a Palm Springs drag queen wonderland.

Thank Gawd It’s Friday

There is also the Illusions Palm Springs drag show at Pete’s Hideaway every Friday and Saturday night. As with Michael Holms of the Purple Room, they offer the best in celebrity impersonation drag queen entertainment!

Palm Springs Drag Bingo Saturdays

Once you have slept off the sins of Friday night, rage into the light! Your number is up at Chill Bar every Saturday at noon-ish when drag bingo claws its way onto the scene. Drink specials abound and every time a certain number is announced through the PA system. That’s right, the secret number elicits free shots for everyone participating in the bingo bash, but stay on your tippy-toes; the digits fly as fast as the jokes, courtesy of your Palm Springs drag queen du jour. Host Sabryna Williams and Drag Guest superstars.

Even More Palm Springs Entertainment

Herstory is made every day here in Palm Springs. The schedule above is merely an overview, but drag events may erupt unexpectedly at dazzling destinations like Retro Room Lounge, Stacy’s Piano Bar and Moxie, just to name a fab few.

Be ready for anything, be prepared for everything, and be bad, baby. Kisses!
