San Francisco Bay Area burlesque for June 2 - June 8, 2011

Ah, back at the Java Vegas outlet at the Orleans. And since it's morning of Day One of the Burlesque Hall of Fame Weekend, I've noticed a lot of attendees here. In fact, I'm sharing a table with Baby Blue Bergman of Sydney who performed in our area several weeks ago.

Back in the Bay Area, there's still a full schedule of events, however. Dottie Lux will be especially busy, because she's leading off things with Go Deep at El Rio on Thursday, having the second Red Hots Burlesque show of the calendar week on Friday, then hosting the Dr. Sketchy's San Francisco event on Saturday at John Colins! Not to mention performing at First Friday Follies!

Plus, there's some shows that will help kickoff the upcoming Pride event later in the month. First Friday Follies and the Kentucky Fried Woman show will both have Pride-themed shows. Once again, I haven't mentioned some of the shows in this intro, but check them all out below!

Well, it's almost time for me to get ready to usher the "Movers, Shakers & Innovators Showcase." I'm scheduled to be one of the ushers with Mynx d'Meanor. Hopefully, I won't be causing mass confusion in the aisles! I'm off to study the seating arrangements.

I hope everyone enjoys the shows in the Bay Area this weekend! :-)
