Old School Burlesque in a Modern Era

I am always on the lookout for new, unusual, fun, and different bars to enjoy a libation. Here is one on the risque side that is sure to get your blood pressure pumping.

In an era when many new bars open up and try to cram as much modern technology into every nook and cranny like some Vegas mega-sports-bar-ultra-lounge Frankenstein monster it is surprisingly refreshing to walk into a place such as Nurse Bettie here in NYC.

Like a throwback to the 1950’s Bettie Page style pin-ups. Simple, chic, and sexy with free burlesque shows on Wednesday and Thursday nights performed by some pretty talented and hot temptresses.

Looking around you know the types that frequent these places – students, home workers, Facebook fiends, bloggers, and wifi hogs among others. That last one can always be found mostly in coffee shops such as Starbucks leeching off of the complimentary wifi and free Continue reading Me? A wifi hog? Oink!

I lift things up and put them down!

I have to admit to being a slug lately. With all that has been going on here in the city – hurricane, nor’easter, power outage, slight cold – my workouts suffered and I definitely dropped off my routine. I feel like the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man. I’m starting to resemble him. After looking in the mirror this morning I decided to drag my pudgy ass to the gym and get back to my workouts.
