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!

Danielle Staub: the Interview

Without a doubt the most controversial character on Real Housewives of New Jersey (if not the series as a whole), Danielle Staub has been keeping it very very real both on the show and in reality. This New Year's Eve, she's hosting our party at China Club; and although we don't expect to see any table flipping, you just never know.

Why did you decide to do "Real Housewives?"

I was approached with an offer, and after viewing the Orange County Housewives with my daughters, we decided that this could be the beginning of a great new chapter in our lives!
