Best Drag Show 

Charlie Horse

By crowning Charlie Horse as the best drag show, we don't mean to dethrone Trannyshack. That's just not possible. Like Oprah Winfrey, who no longer turns in Emmy-nomination bids after having won bushels of them, Heklina's genius drag revue has no equal and certainly no longer needs our pithy accolades. But if you're looking for something in a similar vein but on a weekend night, check out this night of condensed, sloppy, artistic, and bizarre drags numbers at one of the scant few remaining gay Tenderloin joints, created and hosted by former Miss Trannyshack 2006, Anna Conda. Anything from Broadway to high-concept themed nights goes here. One week's pays tribute to Bambi Lake with "Bambi Lakes on a Plane," and another week's has a tranny snorting some sort of, um, baking powder off of her fists while performing — or so I've heard — and doing it all gorgeously.
