San Francisco Bay Area burlesque for the weekend of February 4-6, 2011

This is a special Groundhog's Day edition of the weekly show round-up. This following will be a listing of the shows for this weekend, and it'll be followed up with another post including the shows for early next week.

This is necessitated because all of us here at the SFBR have caught the flu bug, in case you were wondering. If you notice anything that reads funny, blame the bug!
