Oy ye! Oy ye!

Estimable friends of the Chicago's Burning Man community, the time is nigh to again raise our glasses, and raise our eyebrows for this evening of tantalizing titillation, transcendent tomfoolery, vivacious vaudevillians and delectable delicacies of digestive daring-do!

Since 2010, the Burlesque Bake Sale has raised over $2,400 for the Bold Urban Renaissance Network's titanic do-goodery, funding local artists, community organizations, and free expression right here in our fine metropolis. Expect a resplendent night of cuisine, libation, and eye-popping entertainment, all at one of Chicago's most historic and nostalgic venues: The Speakeasy Cabaret at the Green Door Tavern.

Proceeds will go to support the Bold Urban Renaissance Network 501(c)3, which has given out over $10,000.00 in art grants and community grants since aught eight.

We are looking for burlesque performers, or anyone who is interested in volunteering to help out! Acoustic performers, magicians, and novelty acts are especially needed.

And of course, you can't have a bake sale without baked goods! These burners are veritable Olympians of the culinary arts. DO YOU have what it takes to bring home the Golden Whisk?

This year's theme is the Future/Retro - where the distant future and distant past find harmony.

To confirm that you want to participate by performing, volunteering, or bringing a baked good for auction, contact your host: downtowndave23 AT gmail DOT com.

See you there!
