Things are really heating up. There's been a plethora of shows lately, and this week is not exception. In addition to the weekly and monthly shows, there's a breast cancer benefit show in Santa Cruz on Saturday honoring Living Legend of Burlesque, Madame E! The weather should clear up by then, so you could hang out on the Boardwalk during the day, then head over to the show in the evening. But they say past shows have sold out, so get your tickets early!
