SF Bay Area burlesque for the week of November 17, 2008

The holidays are almost here! Yeah, it doesn't seem like it with all the warm temperatures in the Bay Area. But this is the last week to catch a spate of shows before people start heading home for Thanksgiving.

Of course, there will still be the two weekly shows, Uptown Hubba Hubba and Red Hots Burlesque next week, but this week also features a Barbary Coast Burlesque Benefit for Madame E and a show from the folks at Hubba Hubba Revue sure to rile up the womenfolk...
