IMG_6045

The doors have opened at Evolution Wonderlounge for social distanced drinks. Your LGBTQ2S+ venue needs your love and support. I will be playing the retro classics you have come to love from 9pm to midnight this Friday as a background soundtrack. It will be a nostalgic walk through memory lane of how we used to socialize. There is a limited capacity, no dancing policy and masks and social distancing are mandatory. The up side is you can be in one of your favourite places for libations and reminisce. Hope to see you there, from a far.
