Pasties and Pastries

Ah, the art of burlesque: a once-taboo underground performance that has somehow managed to become an oversaturated trend among the nightlife scene. Still, we’re not complaining about seeing a busty beauty or ten donning only a pair of glittery, heart-shaped pasties. Although there are a slew of burlesque babes shaking their moneymakers for drooling audiences, Cupcake Burlesque claims to be the “naughtiest” troupe in all of South Florida (though it will tone it down to PG-rated for special events). Hmmm. Make the ladies prove it by showing up at 9 p.m. at the newly renovated 5 Points Lounge (2608 S. Federal Highway, Fort Lauderdale). There is a $5 cover, and two bands — Askultura, and Bungled and Botched — will perform as well. Visit cupcakeburlesque.com.
