"What happens when burlesque comes back to Baltimore’s red-light district?"

Something like this!

Most of their local shows have been in very different venues—stripping for artsy crowds at the Creative Alliance or hipsters at the Ottobar. If there is any doubt that Trixie and Monkey will be out of their element here, it vanishes at noon, when the club opens and the house dancers hit the stage.

You know, this sounds like a great time, but I would not want to be one of the (Hustler) dancers who had to work that night! Can you imagine how much that screwed up their weekend?

True, but the clubs I've worked at that had occasional special events always did them on weekends. Sometimes I'd stick around to check out the event, sometimes I'd take that weekend off and go visit my mom.

They were very generous in giving up their work time. Not only generous, every lady who worked there was nothing but kind and supportive! A great night!!

XOXO:)
