TGI Fridays w/ Karma (Weekly Drag Show) at Absinthe Hamilton, 38 King William St., Hamilton
Join every Friday night at Absinthe w/ Karma Kameleon for a night of comedy and drag, to help you forget your weekly stress at TGI Fridays! For week one (Aug. 14), it will be pay what you can, which means no required cover; however, there will be a suggested tip of $5-$10 (or more if you're feeling generous and love drag and have missed seeing queens!), so come and enjoy a (socially distanced) night out with friends (in your bubble of course)! For week one, Karma will be solo, however other local performers will be added as the weeks go on. There is a limited amount of indoor seating, as well as Absinthe's patio; all socially distanced, with masks required for indoor seating, and while walking to and from the bathrooms and around the patio. Tips/PWYC cover will be collected in a box near the DJ booth, so that there is no interacting directly with the queen, and performers will be distanced away from all patrons to ensure maximum safety for everyone.
