Best Dance Party

Mother at Oasis Nightclub & Cabaret

The monthly phenomenon formerly known as Trannyshack may have undergone a name change — and become a weekly event — but it hasn't stopped the party from raging full force. Hosted by Oasis denizen and local drag legend Heklina, Mother is an exercise in San Francisco realness. Often themed to celebrate pop royalty, be it Nicki Minaj or David Bowie, a night at Mother is the best way to cut loose (plus no bachelorette parties allowed!). Popular drag queens visiting from afar often stop by with their own productions as well, including a recent visit from RuPaul's Drag Race Season 7 favorite Ginger Minj. Amid costume changes and stiff cocktails is a welcoming atmosphere that invites all to leave their bullshit at the door, throw back a shot, and revel in the magic of a Saturday night.
