Black Diamond Burlesque is back Thursday performing in the old bordello area upstairs at the Gator Club in downtown Sarasota. Offering another "peep show," it will star, among others, Mina Munro (pictured). The revue includes routines such as the stocking and boa work, tassel twirling and the always popular bump and grind, all of which will be taught Saturday by the Black Diamond Burlesque performers during a private Bump-n-Grind Playshop. (Reservations required. $25 per person. Contact Lady LaLa via firstname.lastname@example.org to arrange for your reservation and pre-payment.) Sorry fellows, the Saturday "playshop" is ladies only.
Black Diamond Burlesque's Peep Show is 8:30-10 p.m. Thursday, June 26, and costs $10. The troupe's Bump-n-Grind Playshop is 1-3 p.m. Saturday. Both events are at The Gator Club, 1490 Main St., Sarasota;366-5969; thegatorclub.com.
