Getting Wet 

Wednesday, Jul 31 2013

San Francisco has been near the top of a lot of lists lately (dog-friendly, bike-friendly, wealth-friendly), but hereÕs one that slipped past our radar: world-class burlesque locales. Our very own Hubba Hubba Revue was recently named one of Òthe top 10 burlesque shows in the worldÓ by the Travel Channel. WeÕre appropriately thrilled, but not too surprised. Hubba HubbaÕs mixture of circus, striptease and good old-fashioned get down has been thrilling local audiences for years. This monthÕs incarnation features a theme of ÒUndersea Burlesque,Ó and sees the crew returning to their original venue, DNA Lounge. A return that director Jim Sweeney described as Òlong awaited,Ó and Òextra special.Ó Guest performers this time are Jessabelle Thunder and Caramel Knowledge, both from LA, and the all black-light burlesque troupe The Ultra Violets. Important note: Hubba Hubba Review is happening after another event, so the doors wonÕt open until 9:30 p.m.

Fri., Aug. 9, 9:30 p.m., 2013
