‘Meals on Heels’ brings the dine-in experience to delivery

A San Francisco club uses its drag performers as delivery providers with flair while the venue remains closed by coronavirus restrictions

Clubs may have been closed for the past eight months, but that doesn’t mean performers have no way to make a living.

“Meals on Heels” is a food-and-entertainment delivery program launched by the San Francisco drag bar Oasis. Performers sidelined by the pandemic have taken their show literally on the road as delivery drivers providing socially-distanced entertainment.

The performers are brought to the delivery address — dressed to the nines — and put on a show curbside, which ends with the food and drink delivery.

Oasis owner D’Arcy Drollinger ran out of Paycheck Protection Program money early on and didn’t want to lay off workers, a spokesperson for the club said. Instead, Drollinger decided to deliver performers, along with the signature cocktails and full meals provided by Martha Kitchen, to offer dinner and a show.

The club offers three packages —the Barbra, the Judy and the Liza — ranging from $95-$105, which comes with drinks, entrees and a dessert.

The delivery packages have become so popular that Oasis had to expand the number of delivery days, the spokesperson said.
