Every Sunday night the Biltmore plays hosts to a sexy and glamourous cabaret of burly-q beauties. For $5, audience members watch four different dancers perform two numbers each. I was lucky enough to attend the “Beef and Blow Jobs” celebration on Sunday March 14th where an additional two dancers were performing. That’s six talented burlesque performers (and six sets of boobies) for $5. Clearly, it’s a deal.

“Beef and Blow Jobs.” Let me explain. As an antidote to Valentine’s Day Kitty Nights co-hosts, Burgundy Brixx and The Purrfessor, decided to celebrate two things that are not … necessarily … a part of the traditional Valentine’s celebration – steak and oral sex. This sweet and special holiday takes place exactly one month after V-Day, so mark your calendars for next year. I think they might make try to make this one a national holiday.
Kitty Nights is a New York-style burlesque cabaret. “New York style” means the show includes a go-go dance performance at half time. During the go-go dance audience members can approach the performer and slip cash into various parts of her costume (see photo gallery for images).
There is always a “bag of sex” raffle on Sunday nights at the Biltmore. In the past it has included a pin-up photo shoot, a hair styling appointment, movie vouchers, items of clothing, undergarments, sex toys and bits of burlesque costumery (read: pasties).
I walked away from this performance in happy awe. The routines were funny, expertly choreographed and beautifully costumed. I felt great; happy, sexy and inspired to continue my quest for burlesque stardom.
