Make sure your seat's in the upright position when Chicago Takes Off, February 10 at the Park West.

The Sissy Butch Broads gives us Girlesque Burlesque this Saturday, January 13 at The Vic. What these chicks can do with a few feathers and a perverted imagination! Bring a towel as moisture may ensue.
Geno and the girls are closin' down Cocktail for a few for a quick suck-and-tuck. Never fear, dear--they shall re-open Thursday, January 25 for all your drinking needs.
Stop by The Baton this Monday, January 15 for Miss Ultimate Continental Plus. Methinks a substantial ( and fantasically catered ) buffet is crucial to this show. I come from fat girl stock, honey. I can throw down on a bucket of extra crispy with the best of 'em.
Creaoke is petitioning once more for song requests. Let's band together to cram his suggestion box with Captain and Tennille favorites. For only love will keep us together. Particularly if said love involves muskrats. For those who don't get the reference, what you must be thinking!
