5 Events to Get You Warmed Up for Summer

Spring is here, and the best way to celebrate is to glug down tons of beer, learn (and taste) different wines, and of course, watch sexy burlesque dancers do their thing! Okay, maybe the beer drinking is the only thing you normally do, but everything else is sure to be a good addition to your springtime traditions!

The Naked Truth: A game/burlesque show unlike any other. The show features burlesque star Julie Atlas Muz, and is hosted by Jonny Porkpie at The Triad. It will also feature Trixie Little and the Evil Hate Monkey, Peekaboo Pointe, Bunny Buxom and Satira Sin. Audience members will be hypnotized by the moves of these performers as they take the stage. Lucky attendees can also partake of the action when they come on stage to take part in an interactive game show that has them attempting to expose (and guess) the performers' most intimate secrets (let's hope you don't have too many of your own!). All your hard detective work won't go unrewarded--awesome prizes will be given away! The show starts April 21st, with performances happening the third Saturday of each month until June. Tickets are $35 (general admission) and $45 (premium seating), and can be purchased here. It's time to uncover...The Naked Truth!

AMANDA LEPORE
Susanne Bartsch's Annual Toy Drive

Susanne Bartsch threw her annual toy drive at Greenhouse December 14th with co-host Kenny Kenny. Everyone came with an unwrapped toy since it was all about the kids. And perhaps that was reflected in the nature of the guests who were scantily dressed in costumes which included anything from body paints to holiday dresses.

As usual, Susanne Bartsch gathered a unique crowd of guests including Marc Jacobs, the amazing Amanda Lepore, Debbie Harry, Dita von Teese and Richie Rich. Brandon Olsen, designer Kia Kuhne, Patrick McDonald, the 26 year-old ballet dancer Andrew Kaminski, Dirty Martini and Ladyfag were also in attendance. Susanne, who is married to gym owner David Barton, was in excellent shape, of course.
