Burlesque Hall of Fame Weekend

This weekend is the biggest event in the burlesque world: The Burlesque Hall of Fame Weekend and Miss Exotic World Pageant. Known as the "Super Bowl of Burlesque," the "Academy Awards of Burleque" and the "Miss America of Burlesque," this weekend is kind of a big deal.

We are not going this year, but next year will be my first trip out there. Last night, good friend and Miss Exotic World contestant, Tatah Dujour from Key West, Fla. stopped by my house to take a shower and rest on her long trip to Vegas. We also gave them lots of homemade Mexican barbecue tacos; I don't think they minded much.

Events kick off tomorrow and last till Sunday. Good luck to everyone competing!

Check out winners from the past.
