San Francisco area burlesque for November 17 to November 23, 2010

It's the week before Thanksgiving, so see some burlesque shows before the holiday!

Red Hots Burlesque has two shows this week, one on Wednesday at the Saturn Cafe in Berkeley, and another, extended show on Friday at their usual spot at El Rio in San Francisco.

The Hubba Hubba Revue will have their "Big Show" on Saturday at the DNA Lounge in San Francisco. The title of the show will be "Secret Agents!" So grab your spy gear and see some top-secret burlesque!

And there's a new show happening at the Bollyhood Cafe this Saturday! It's called Bedazzled Cabaret, and it will feature a mixture of burlesque and belly dancing. Twilight Vixen Revue will be a guest performer this month, along with a host of other entertainers! If you're in the Mission, you'll want to check this show out!
