Busy weekend in San Francisco Bay Area burlesque!

This weekend, there are quite a few burlesque shows to see, especially tonight. From sASSy Hotbuns' Honky-Tonk Burlesque on Friday afternoon to Kentucky Fried Woman's tribute show to the late Whitney Houston on Sunday evening, it's bound to be a fun time for burlesque fans.

And for this weekend, the "round-up" format returns! Yay!

Also note that the Mischievous Maidens show on Fridays at the Skylark Bar is now the Hot Toddies show! It's still free for you and me!

Enjoy your weekend, and tip your bartenders well!
