Last Night: Super Sexy Show at El Cid

If you've lived in L.A. long enough you know weekends are for amateurs and the real shenanigans happen on Thursdays. Case in point: Silver Lake's retro-glam "Super Sexy Show" which takes place every first and third Thursday of the month at El Cid. Last night I headed down to the Spanish grotto delight to catch this week's "Super Sexy" performance and -- after my tapas menu-induced food coma set in -- propped myself up near the stage and waited. And waited. And waited some more. At long last, 40 minutes after their scheduled set time, the dancing Hollywood Pin-Up Girls finally emerged from behind the velvet curtain decked out in torn fishnets, ruffled panties, sequined and beaded bodices, and more feathers than one could sneeze at. Enjoy the slideshow -- or peep show -- and all that jazz.
