The Burlympics celebrate burlesque's heritage of vaudeville, comedy and magic—but mostly just the striptease. A variety of performers compete over two nights for a shot at gold and awards like "Master of Tassels." Come out to Fais Do-Do for performances from Gabriella Maze, Venus Demille, Bobbie Burlesque and Count Smokula, among others, and head to M Bar on Sunday for a "burleokee" after party.
