Tonight's Naughty Mambo Pin-Up Party is a celebration of mothers albeit an unusual, racy celebration. Paper Dolls and Westword contributing photographer Jim J. Narcy have been shooting sexy frames of contestants for several weeks; tonight's bash will crown the winners of Paper Dolls' Mother's Day Pin-Up Contest.
Shooting the photographs "has been a joy," Narcy says. "Everybody says, 'Oh, I'm so scared. I don't know if I can do it.' I have to have a counseling session just to convince them they can, but once they're in front of the camera holy cow. It's a blast." And to fete the women brave enough to unleash their inner Bettie Page, the Naughty Mambo Party will feature comedy, music, dance performances, a fashion show, gift-bag giveways and an art show. Yowza!
General admission is $10 to $12; VIP tickets, which include dinner and Flying Dog brews, are $25. The party gets started at 8 p.m. at 3 Kings Tavern, 60 South Broadway. Call 303-777-7370 for info; go to www.letbeautyloose.com/paperdolls for tickets.
