San Francisco Bay Area burlesque for the week of November 9 to 15, 2011

The weekly round-up of burlesque shows has moved up a day! It'll cover shows from Wednesday to Tuesday of each week.

In other news, Dr. Sketchy's East Bay has been presented by Red Hots Burlesque in Oakland on a monthly basis since April of this year. At least until they find a new venue, this will be the last Dr. Sketchy's East Bay. The models will come from Sin Sisters Burlesque of Santa Cruz.

Former Bay Area resident Mariel a la Mode will be performing at a couple of shows this week. If you'd like to say "hooray" or "woot," She'll be performing at Little Minsky's on Thursday and Barbary Coast Burlesque on Friday.

If you're out in Brentwood of Discovery Bay, The Mischievous Maidens will be performing at their monthly show, Cabaret Rouge, in Byron tonight. They'll often have special guests, so check out their show at the Wild Idol Saloon! For those of you in the more immediate Bay Area, they will return to San Francisco this Friday evening for their monthly free show at the Skylark Bar.

sASSy Hotbuns of sASSy's Seaside Burlesque will be presenting Hotbuns Hillbilly Hotties at The Riptide in San Francisco early Friday evening. If you can make it over there by 6:00 p.m., this is the show for you! The happy hour drink specials start at 4:00, so start your weekend a bit earlier than usual! Plus it's a free show!
