This weekend I am truly overwhelmed by the number of events deserving consideration. First off, let me remind you to read my last post for some great suggestions for this evening! You might also be interested to know that I’ve been compiling a list of all the venues I’ve mentioned in The Big Red Apple; check it out HERE.
Dances of Vice is throwing a truly decadent bash Friday night; they’re calling it “The Importance of Being Wilde” in honor of Oscar Wilde. If Wilde was the original glamour queen then party host and glam rocker Michael T is his direct descendant; he’ll be performing along with exotic serpent-dancer NIKKI le VILLAIN and other exciting guests.
If you want to go further back you can head to Glasslands for a French Revolution themed “performance dance party.” I believe the flier says it all:
ALSO on Friday, if you’re looking for something a bit more low-key, you can hang out at Madame X’s, where beautiful naked women will be reading aloud.
The concept is simple: Girls. Reading. Naked. On Friday, October 16 Pinchbottom Burlesque presents the New York City debut of Chicago’s hit nude literary salon, NAKED GIRLS READING. Created by Michelle L’Amour (America’s Got Talent, Burlesque Hall of Fame’s Miss Exotic World 2005), the evening is a celebration of beautiful women sharing the books they love … in the altogether. The East Coast Premiere is hosted by Pinchbottom’s own Nasty Canasta and will feature local burlesque celebrities Gal Friday, GiGi La Femme, Jo Boobs, Legs Malone, and Sapphire Jones — as well as a very special guest appearance by Michelle L’Amour herself — reading selections from their favorite banned books.
On Saturday head out to my part of Brooklyn (Kensington/Ditmas Park) for an Oktoberfest Pig Roast at one of my favorite bars- Sycamore, a bar and flower shop! There will be live music and just $25 gets you meat, sides and 2 beers!
Saturday evening celebrate the Clearwater Sloop’s triumphant return to Brooklyn! The 106-foot tall “Tall Ship” will be sailing to Redhook and you can still sign up to be on board! If you’d rather stay indoors you can join the celebration at the dock (southern end of Van Brunt St. in Red Hook, Brooklyn, behind Fairway) and then head round the corner to Sunny’s for mulled cider and bluegrass. The boat should be docking at 6pm; be on site to go on board for a tour of this wonderful classroom on the water!
That’s all for the moment; stay tuned for further announcements and follow me on Twitter for the latest updates from The Big Red Apple.
