San Francisco area burlesque for September 1 to September 7, 2010

The Labor Day weekend is almost upon us, and the San Francisco Bay Area burlesque shows continue to entertain.

It looks like this week will be mainly weekly and monthly shows: Red Hots Burlesque, First Friday Follies, Burlesque n' Brass, and the Hubba Hubba Revue Uptown show. If you've never been to see these shows, especially the ones in Oakland, this is a good week to catch them. Each show has its own unique vibe, and you'll be able to see some of the Bay Area's best bars and clubs, too!

I hope you enjoy this last unofficial week of summer!
