When it comes to the biggest bang/bump/grind/headlock for your buck, Lucha VaVoom at the Mayan is the winner and still champion. It's the biggest burlesque-themed spectacle that takes place in Los Angeles on a regular basis (usually on holidays such as Valentine's Day, Halloween and, of course, Cinco de Mayo) and the ladies involved are pros when it comes to pinup style. VaVoom is truly two great tastes that taste great together: the excitement of masked Mexican wrestling and the enticement of old-fashioned striptease with a rockin' flair, plus a wry comedic tone via the show's announcers. Led by Rita D'Albert (aka Ursulina) and Liz Fairbairn — who co-created the Velvet Hammer troupe along with Michelle Carr — Lucha VaVoom often features Velvet Hammer alums, and these ladies more than hold their own next to the masked mayhem that goes on in the ring. 1038 S. Hill St., dwntwn. (213) 746-4674, luchavavoom.com. —Lina Lecaro
