San Francisco Bay Area burlesque for September 8 - September 14, 2011

There's quite a lot happening this week in Bay Area burlesque!

Delilah, one of our most notable ecdysiasts, will be moving on to New York City. So this coming week will include her final shows before the big move. It looks like the Hubba Hubba Revue's 5-Year Anniversary Spectacular on Friday, September 16 will be her last show here as a resident, but you can also catch her at Little Minsky's on Thursday, this Friday's Red Hots Burlesque, and Monday's Hubba Hubba Revue show in Oakland. You can keep up with Delilah by reading her blog at

Fella Fem will be having their last Le Boy show this Saturday at the White Horse Inn in Oakland. This will not only be a celebration of the final show, but also a celebration of Dicky Luv's birthday!

The Haight Street Hop will be hosting the debut of Burlesque Bingo in San Francisco! The show will feature Miss Exotic World 2002 Kitten DeVille, as well as Burlesque Bingo's founder Audrey DeLuxe, Flame Cynders, Mynx d'Meanor, and more!
