August 6, 2012 | Snatch the Gold at Jacques Cabaret
Now that the Olympics are in full swing, we’re being exposed to a host of less-than-familiar sports. But equestrian dressage and slalom canoeing aren’t nearly as exotic as the athletic feats being featured tonight at Snatch the Gold, a special Olympic-themed installment of Perestroika at Jacques Cabaret (79 Broadway, Boston, 617.426.8902). The monthly drag spectacular’s hostess, Katya Zamolodchikova (pictured), took home one of our “Boston’s Sexiest” awards last year, but this sexy Soviet isn’t one to rest on her laurels: tonight she’s aiming to medal with her riveting floor routines. Meanwhile, Nicholle Pride will compete in the hotly contested “longest-legs-having” category, and Frieda Fries will defend her “deadlift rollerskating” title. The games begin at 10:30 p.m. Call ahead to book yourself a seat at the judges’ tables.
