Over the Weekend: Cirque Du So Lame, Burlesque Barbie... and Easter
For those who stayed in town over the holiday weekend and skipped out on feasting with the extended family, hopefully you took Jessica Ritz's advice and enjoyed Easter brunch at one of her recommended restaurants Comme Ca, XIV, The Bazaar or Providence. We did and followed it up with dinner at Little Dom's. Food comas aside, there was plenty of bizarre nightlife to be enjoyed once we mustered the strength. Read on for what we did and who we saw...
Mandy Ma at Cirque Du So Lame
Zippercut hosted Cirque Du So Lame at Royal/T cafe on Friday night, attended by clowns, harlequins, jesters, Lolitas, tightrope walkers, ringmasters, knife throwers, carnies, people in top hats, people in fuzzy bear costumes, one bearded lady, and the actual Bob Baker and his marionettes.
