Bourbon and Burlesque


Bourbon Street and burlesque had a long and intimate relationship, but now the CAC is matching striptease and straight bourbon. Local burlesque troupe Fleur de Tease will kick off an evening of drinking and swinging entertainment at the CAC's Bourbon and Burlesque fundraiser. Complimentary cocktails will be mixed with the distinguished bottlings from the Kentucky distilleries of Woodford Reserve, Buffalo Trace and Wild Turkey. Bourbon House will serve bourbon-inspired dishes. Also performing will be the Troy Sawyer Trio and the Aurora Aerial aerialists, and other surprises will be revealed during the evening. The House of Lounge and Cigar Factory New Orleans Cigar Bar provide special giveaways. Tickets $60, $40 for CAC members. -- Lauren LaBorde
