Northside non-profit Caracole, which provides safe and affordable housing and support services to people and families living with HIV/AIDS, knows how to put the “fun” in “fundraiser” — we’d say drag show set in a bar is a pretty solid recipe for success. Come out for Caracole’s inaugural drag queen pageant, where female Caracole employees and other supporters get dolled up for a female drag show. Each lady performs alongside a professional queen from Cincinnati’s own Imperial Sovereign Queen City Court of the Buckeye Empire (a nonprofit court of drag gurus and do-gooders who work to benefit Cincinnati’s LGBTQ community). Bring those dollar bills — the queens will be collecting tips (all of which benefit Caracole), and the lady who raises the most will be crowned supreme. Free. 21 and up. 7 p.m. doors; 8 p.m. show. Sunday, March 3.  Northside Tavern, 4163 Hamilton Ave., Northside. 513-542-3603, northsidetav.com or caracole.org.
