Golden Lady Burlesque - Neo Edition

From the imagination of Essence Revealed:

A cocktail party hosted by some of NYC's burlesque world wonderfuls. After they perform, a piano player emerges to play for you, sing with you and fill the room with the sounds of ebony & ivory. Your hosts float about the room as we all share stories, songs and laughter to a soundtrack remixed by the ice clinking playfully in our glasses...

There will be an auction where you can bid on anything from sex toys to special gifts from the performers. You never know what's in store! We can't wait to hear "SOLD to the highest bidder!" **Who knows, A Table Dance From Host Essence Revealed could be on the auction block any given month**

Fearless Over 40 Presents: The Early Bird Special

Fearless Over 40 was started by Lydia Mandell and Kate Higgins two mental health professionals who met as their burlesque alter egos Vanil LaFrappe and Beelzebabe. Connecting as performers over 40, they bonded over their punk rock pasts, their love of glamour and kitsch, and their desire to redefine beauty and aging on their own terms. Happiness, as we were amazed to discover is Punk As F*ck. Tonight they present: the early bird special, an early night of burlesque featuring performers over 40 (that don't look a day over 25).
