French Quarter Burlesque – Thursday March 12


It’s Thursday. 30 Rock is probably a repeat, maybe the office is too. Feeling a little risque? Or, want to watch a person who is definitely feeling a little risque, along with feeling a whole lot of other things? Venture out to your friendly neighborhood burlesque show.  Guaranteed to put a nervous smile on your face.  Former hotdog vendor, Natasha Minsk (of course) along with Donna Touch, Wham Bam Pam, Bonny Babs, The Honey Buns, and Paris Green in Vaudezilla’s Erin Go BraLess promise a remarkable night. I wonder what my burlesque name is?
