Victory Party 5/17/12

Dear Constant Reader,

On Thursday last we threw a little soiree to celebrate our third Best of Boston from the Phoenix annual readers’ poll. It was also the kick-off for our new monthly showcase, The Dollhouse, at The Estate (a nightclub in Boston, not to be confused with Stately Babydoll Manor).

It was a grand time. There was fantastic food (or so I’m told — I was still under the weather) from Lizzy’s and Foundry. We had a tea-cup raffle (you put your raffle tickets in a cup by the item you want) with great prizes from a lot of terrific local businesses & artists, like (I know I will forget some): Fluevog, The Fox Affect, Muscular Solutions, John Chaos, Trials of Love, Chris McIntosh, Redbones, and Veve (I put all my tickets on this one).

We had some performances from special guests Vikki Likkerish “The Gift that Keeps Getting Unwrapped” and turquoise-haired beauty BettySioux Tailor as well as go-go dancing from The Boston Babydoll Interns.

To top everything off, we re-assembled the Unluckiest Band in the World (mostly — we had a new drummer) and the Amorettes from Unlucky in Love and reprised a few favorites.

Evie opened with a brand new dance to “The Man with the Golden Arm”. Then Stella sang “Ain’t Misbehavin'”. Betty performed her mesmerizing Loie Fuller inspired act to “Someone to Watch Over Me” while Alissa sang. Then Alissa sang “The Man I Love” for Devora (and partner). All 3 ladies sang their version of “If I had a Million Dollars”. Lastly Imani (and the other two backing her up) sang “Jezebel” while I did my fan dance.

Thank you to everyone who voted for us and who came to the party! We’ll see you back at The Estate next month for The Dollhouse!

Victory Party!

Dear Constant Reader,

A record number of readers have perused yesterday’s missive. I suppose I should post semi-nude pictures of myself more often.

But what I really wanted to do today is invite you to a party. A party to celebrate the Best Burlesque in Boston. A party at a fabulous nightclub. A party with great music. A party with a tea-cup auction. A party with performances by The Boston Babydolls and special guests. A party that’s free.

That’s right. You can attend our Victory Party at The Estate in Boston on May 17th for free. If you wait until the last minute, there’s a $10 cover at the door. Why would you want to wait? Just click HERE, sign up, and guarantee yourself a place on the guest list!
