Here’ some fun stuff you can indulge in if you’re in Karachi over the weekend:

3) Open Mic Night at Chaaye Khaana

 

You know what makes Karachi diverse? The plethora of opportunity for artistic people to showcase their talent and garner appreciation from others. Open mic nights are ideal opportunities for people who want to pursue singing, slam poetry, stand-up comedy and much more but are too afraid to perform in front of a huge crowd. If you are looking for a sign, this is it. If you are not one to perform, you can be the audience.
