Tuesday's Pick: Les Folies Champagne at Bubble Lounge

Weimar, Weimar, Weimar. From where we sit, we see a lot of artists fixated on the shadowy, sexualized drama of Berlin nightlife immediately pre-Nazi control. It's a powerful aesthetic, as fictionalized by the deathless film Cabaret and as represented elsewhere in drool-inducing pieces of art from that era, from jewelry to pornography. It was a gay old time, full of debauchery and drag queens, and that is why SF Boylesque, a very pretty all-boy burlesque troupe, hews to its ways. At Les Folies Champagne, MC Jason Brock and DJ Lindon join the boys in entertaining you, and each bit is (prepare yourself) paired with a glass of champagne. One more time: 1930s-style gay man cabaret dance troupe with champagne pairings. It's mind-blowingly delicious and decadent.

    Blue skies meet redwood canopies in the mountain town of Felton, located just north of Santa Cruz on Highway 9. Once a bustling logging community, the town is now a mix of mellow locals and serene wilderness. Visitors can enjoy the redwoods in nearby Henry Cowell Redwoods State Park and splash in swimming holes in the San Lorenzo River. For a bite to eat stop by Rocky’s Cafe for fruit-laden pancakes, barbeque at the Cowboy Bar & Grill and poolside burgers at the Trout Farm Inn. Other stops worth checking out include Roaring Camp Railroads, the Mount Hermon zip line tour, and the educational Bigfoot Discovery Museum. For beer or cocktails a log cabin bar has you covered.
