I just found this blurb online about an upcoming event I’ll be helping to co-host – if you’re in the Chicago area, please drop by! Burlesque is involved.
February at the MCA begins with a First Friday’s Burlesque Star theme. Guests can send messages to one another via the Digital Love Post Office; make Valentines at the Creation Station; and view a sneak peek of “Bubble-Rama,” a comedic short film shot in Chicago. Time Out Chicago’s sex columnist, Debby Herbenick, author of their weekly “In & Out” column, answers questions guests may have. Performers from Michelle L’amour’s “Big Sexy Show” provide entertainment. DJs Megan Taylor and Emily Hard provide music and the bar serves Cabaret Cosmos and Tease me-Tinis. MCA members may enjoy red feather boas given away at the Macy’s Member Lounge. The after party takes place at Crimson Lounge, 333 N. Dearborn St.
First Fridays tickets include museum admission, live entertainment, and complimentary Puck’s hors d’oeuvres and are available the evening of the event for $15 ($7 for MCA members). Advance tickets are $10 ($7 MCA members) available through the MCA Box Office at 312.397.4010 or www.mcachicago.org. Doors are open from 6-10 pm. A cash bar is open until 9:30 pm. Guests must be 21 or older to enter.
