Ohio Burlesque Festival: Sunday, August 4

Dear Constant Reader,

Not too much to report on the drive back from Cleveland to Boston. About 11 hours from the hotel to Stella’s place.

However, one of the things I love about these road trips is seeing places I otherwise never would have. When we left Howe Caverns on Thursday (which feels like a lifetime ago) Dr. Nightmare (that would be the GPS) took us along a secondary, scenic route, instead of taking us back to the highway the way we’d come. We saw some beautiful scenery and lovely old houses which we would have otherwise missed.

Similarly, on Sunday’s drive, Scratch had the brilliant idea of stopping in Buffalo for lunch. We drove through the city, which I have frequently passed, but never seen. It’s a fascinating mix of gleaming new glass & steel buildings and abandoned industrial sites. We decided it looked like Gotham City.

Having lunch there was a great idea. We had. . .

Buffalo wings!

We went to Frank and Teressa’s Anchor Bar, the birthplace of the Buffalo wing. And the wings were terrific: fried crispy, but still juicy, nicely coated in sauce, but not soggy with it. We got the “medium” sauce, which had enough heat that you knew you were eating Buffalo wings, without being painful.

And here we are with the menu for proof!

That’s all the excitement for now, Constant Reader. The Boston Babydolls have 2 more stops with The Fine Art of Burlesque, Portsmouth, NH this Friday and Denmark, ME this Saturday. I’m not in this version of the show, so I’ve asked the other ladies to report back.

You can catch me next in Boston Loves Dixie, a celebration of the life of Burlesque Legend Dixie Evans on August 31st. And don’t forget that tomorrow is Teaseday! Come to The Teaseday Club and see Evie Sphinx’s last performance before she moves out of state!
