New York Burlesque Festival 2012: The Golden Pastie Awards (slide show)
The New York Burlesque Festival welcomed burly-Q's best to the extravaganza's closing ceremonies.
The scene: The New York Burlesque Festival’s Golden Pastie Awards
The tenth annual fest drew to a close with the Golden Pastie Awards, as a gaggle of performers strutted, both onstage and off, in their finest fancy-wear. Weimar vixen Miss Astrid compered the proceedings with plenty of of snark; the event’s producers, Jen Gapay and Angie Pontani, toasted to another decade; octogenarian legend Tempest Storm held court; and everyone reflected on a ten years of our city’s celebration of strip.
