The peaceful little Back Bay neighborhood of Bay Village may be known for its charming, lamp-lit streets and modest brick townhouses, but it's also home to the wildest drag shows in town. Seven days a week at Jacque's Cabaret, you can see the most glamorous showgirls from New England and beyond. Watch as they cajole, charm and, if necessary, blackmail dollars from the audience with virtuosic displays of glamour, talent and double-sided tape. You'll find the crowd equally compelling: On a recent night attendees included a group of Harvard grad students, off-duty strippers, rowdy suburban bachelorettes, and a drunk couple from Lowell who passed out at the bar. It's an insider's legend and a helluva good time. Just remember to get there early, because this neighborhood bar closes promptly at midnight.
