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. You can almost picture this place full of men in fedora hats and women dressed to the nines back in the day drinking proper cocktails while enjoying the visually arousing entertainment on the stage.

Are you a “Cell Phone Savage” too?

Yeah, I’m in a mood this morning. The day started out so good. Bright and sunny out. Crisp cool air and dry outside. Hot cup of coffee on the way to work. Then a bunch of nimrods have to go and piss me off. Sometimes that’s all it takes. Just a few little things that push your buttons the wrong way. Pet peeves aside, some of these annoyances I experience on a daily basis get me to the point of going all Chuck Norris on people. These sorts I am referring to are the “Cell Phone Savages” as I have named them in my mind.

Me? A wifi hog? Oink!

 

Now, as one to always denigrate those around me that use public areas sorely for their free wifi needs I never thought of myself as one of their brood. That is until recently when I had some free time to myself and decided to bring my computer to a local cafe for some coffee.

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!

Dude! Trim those nose hairs!

Riding the rails each day back and forth to work offers me ample time to observe my fellow human beings. One thing that I have noticed over the years are that many men have a complete and utter disregard for their outward appearance, mannerisms, and basic hygiene. Oh yeah, I’m gonna go there! Yes, I am!

Point in case this morning – “the nose hair” guy. Really? It’s probably the easiest thing to take care of. They sell small trimming scissors and battery operated tools to buzz those suckers right down. Just trim once a week so you don’t look like a freaking party favor when breathing. While you’re at it also trim those trees growing out of your ears. No one wants to see hair sprouting out of every orifice on your head. Nothing wrong with a bit of manscaping on the noggin once in a while.  Continue reading Dude! Trim those nose hairs!
