    Ask your doctor if lobotomy is for you.
    Where do they still allow smoking in bars?

    No. Even pre-pandemic I would not take that gig.

    No. And nobody who heeds what are by now common sense health guidelines should be called a wuss, Mr. Strawberries. But let's not go there. I'm afraid I can't come out and see your band at the Covid Club until I feel safe enough to enjoy it. Drink up!

    There's a Korean bar I go to here in Georgia where you can smoke. 21+ only though.

    Nope. Outdoor gigs, yes.

    I do have a few casino gigs lined up, where I can hide out in the green room before and after the show. The stage is well above/separated from the crowd. Those I am OK with.

    But there is no way I would be mixing it up with the unwashed masses in gnarly bar for $100.

    Not until things changes significantly, basically an effective vaccine that's widely distributed.

    I accept this could mean "never".
