Two Books & Burlesque!




Just finished The Book of Love by Kathleen McGowan and really loved it.  Unfortunately, it was Book 2 of the trilogy so now, I have to get Book 1.  I hate starting things in the middle, but Book 2 actually stands alone--a pleasant surprise.







While waiting for Book 1 of the trilogy by McGowan, I picked up an old book I read in high school. My sister recommended it to me waaaaay back when and parts of it have stuck despite the many, many years that have passed. Year of the Unicorn by Andre Norton is also part of a series, but it's the first book. I rarely read fantasy novels, but this one is worth the read. At least, it's withstood the test of time for me.



Last, but not least for this post is my trip to the Beggar's Carnivale at the Casa Loma Ballroom in St. Louis. The Beggar's Carnival is an old-fashioned Burlesque Show and makes for an unusual and entertaining evening.


Interspersed between scenes of a play are burlesque acts. They had a trapeze act, fire eaters, jugglers, dancers, pole dancers, and several acts that ended up with a lot of clothing on the floor!


There were stilt walkers and a peep show, oddities and a side show games. The spectators were almost as entertaining as the actors and artists in that many of the crowd dressed in burlesque fashion as well. I saw a lot of bustiers and boobs, men dressed as women, and women dressed as men. I saw a bearded lady and another with a full handlebar mustache. It was a fun evening, not for the faint of heart or conservative, but definitely a good place to be for the open minded.












Next show is May 18th.
