Puttin' on the Ritz

Last night nine lovely ladies, one gent and I, set off for some burlesque at the Arthouse Hotel. It was a fantastic night made better by strawberry and lime cider, good friends and great clothes. Only downside, Rita Fontain's "burlesque performance" (I use quotation marks heavily, because in my eyes, poor caberet singing and little understanding of the stage does not make for quality entertainment. First time I've ever heard Nina Simone's voice and not equated it to sensuality). Luckily, Imogen Kelly and Briana Bluebell won everyone over with flamingo puppets and extraordinary fans!
