The Fempire Strikes Back: 'Star Wars' Burlesque Parody Storms Hollywood 

July 12, 2010
Courtney Cruz and her burlesque troupe Devil's Playground brought its sexy 'Star Wars' parody back to The Music Box on July 10. This time we were treated to new characters like Juan Cholo, a Bi Fighter (complete with nipple shooting laser beams) and a Steampunk R2 Tutu. Proceeds from the show benefited the Busted Foundation, a fundraising organization that supports women diagnosed with breast cancer. Some images may be NSFW.

  • The Tasting Menu Trend
    In Los Angeles especially, but increasingly across the country, restaurants are either switching to tasting menus, putting a greater focus on a tasting-menu option (while offering à la carte items as well), or opening as tasting-menu operations from day one. The format that used to be the calling card of only the fanciest of restaurants is becoming ubiquitous, even at places where the waiter calls you “dude” and there isn’t a white tablecloth in sight.
