San Francisco area burlesque for December 15 to December 21, 2010

We're reaching the climax of the holiday burlesque season here, folks! Seems like there are lots of shows with a holiday theme. The Hot Pink Feathers, Red Hots Burlesque and Burlesque Moulin, the Hubba Hubba Revue, Debauchery, and Original Sin Burlesque all have holiday shows coming up in the next week! The only event without a holiday theme seems to be Naked Girls Reading on Friday night.

The thing is, this will be your last chance to catch some shows before the week between Christmas and New Year's, which will only feature a few shows. The venues pretty much go dark or have their own holiday events then. So enjoy your holiday burlesque before the year ends!

Happy holidays, everyone! :-)
