Forget about bundling up against the cold: at Midnite Martini's Winter Burlescapades, it's all about taking it off. "We wanted to provide an alternative to the usual kid-focused holiday events going on right now," explains Midnite Martini herself. "It provides comedy, dancy music and good ol'-fashioned live entertainment that adults can really get into. As our emcee, Pierre, says, it's like Casa Bonita for grownups."
Burlescapades includes stripping Christmas presents and women so hot they'd make Frosty melt. "The show harks back to the feel of old holiday vaudeville variety shows like Lawrence Welk, Bob Hope's Christmas specials or White Christmas, only with a more mature, modern and slightly naughtier tone," Martini adds.
And, hey, you've got almost a full year till Christmas 2012 -- so Santa can forgive a little naughtiness so early in the running.
Winter Burlescapades starts at 8 p.m. at Lannie's Clocktower Cabaret, 1600 Arapahoe Street, and tonight's the final edition of this ongoing show, so get there while you can! Tickets are $25 for general admission, $30 for the VIP treatment, and reserved for adults eighteen and older; call 303-293-0075 or visit www.lannies.com.
