San Francisco area burlesque for August 25 to August 31, 2010

Well, I'm on holiday, and my deluxe lodging's WiFi done broke! Oh noes! But I shall intrepidly post this weekly roundup from a cafe.

So although there won't be burlesque in my future, if you're in the Bay Area there are a few shows from which to choose. This week, it looks like a lot of the action is happening on Friday night. Red Hots Burlesque, The ChatRoulette Show, Baxtalo Drom, and the Hubba Hubba Revue are all having shows that night.

But don't forget that on Thursday, Super Happy Funtime Burlesque visits the Bay Area from the Midwest! They'll be performing at the DNA Lounge with local burlesque talents Bunny Pistol and the Mischievous Maidens!

And also don't forget the weekly Hubba Hubba Revue show at the Uptown club on Monday night. It truly is the best time you can have on a Monday night in the Bay Area. So bring your friends and party down to celebrate the waning days of summer!
