If you want some titillating, sexy, fun, then Wasabassco Burlesque is definitely your cup of tea. Celebrating its 7 Year Anniversary, this Brooklyn-based burlesque show (began in 2004) has become one of the greatest burlesque shows ever. November 4th and 5th you can enjoy over 40 of Wasabassco's favorite performers and over SIX hours of entertainment (can you handle it?). Come out Friday night for a stocking fashion show from PEEK Brooklyn featuring the lovely ladies of Wasabassco, as well as a unique pole dance show (within a show) sponsored by X-Pole, and an exclusive engagement by Chicago's Michelle L'Amour, The Most Naked Woman. Saturday night brings more fun and seduction to the table with a tattoo-art runway walk of performers inked by Scarlet Sinclair of Tattoo Ritual, as well as a special appearance by Outer Borough Brass Band. Don't miss two fabulous nights of striptease, fire eating, hula hooping, and more! Hosts of this magnificent event include Doc Wasabassco, Bastard Keith, GiGi La Femme, Nasty Canasta, Sapphire Jones, and Stormy Leather.
Living in New York is pretty awesome, but sometimes we all need an escape. That is the idea behind the newest bar in LES, Affaire. With three separate lounge areas, Affaire is the ideal spot to spend your entire evening. Sample the delicious dishes of Chef Edgar Navarrete. With petit plates ranging from $5-$13, you can certainly order up plenty. Try Liliane's onion soup or the chicken brochette au poivre. Several dishes and glasses of champagne later, head over to the Candle Room where a DJ spins deep house music all night long. If you're lucky enough to make it into the VIP lounge, you can catch a glimpse of a burlesque show choreographed by an original member of the Pussycat Dolls. With its candlelit labyrinths and comfy lounge chairs, you never know what might happen to you at Affaire.
Affaire, 50 avenue B (between 3rd and 4th streets) (212) 375-0665
