Sexy Shows & Fabulous Giveaways at the Paris Burlesque Festival

This week is the 6th annual Paris Burlesque Festival, celebrating the theme "Burlesque & Politics: Pin-Ups Take Power!" at the new Centre Barbara (cultural center near metro Barbès, 18th). The opening night is the election of "Miss PBF 2014" followed by three nights of La Grande Revue performances (twice nightly). Get your tickets online in advance (seated "assis" spots go fast!). On the final evening there is an all-night dance party with live bands and burlesque performances at La Java (dance club near République).

Naughty Paris Will be There! 

The Naughty Guides will have a stand in the festival lounge to welcome guests between shows, with special pre-launch prices on the new edition of Naughty Paris and fun giveaway drawings each night for fabulously naughty prizes. On the final night Saturday the 20th I'll be there signing books before heading over to La Java to dance the night away at La Nuit Fatale...I hope you can join us for the fun!
