The Fella and I spent our Valentine's Day Friday with the ever lovely
Her Internationally known burlesque review, Strip Strip Horray had a three night stint at the Sunset House of Blues. What a wonderful kaleidoscope of entertainers!

"Will you Marry Me?"
It's hard to see, but MC, Murray Hill usually holds a "Dance Off". Here, Geri is in front. She literally pee'd her pants (I mean, literally) during her dance. It was so hilarious and she was such a good sport about it! To tell you the truth, I was almost peed myself watching!
The show itself was amazing, as always. Please visit, Just Jared's exclusive look at the show.
I always pay more for VIP because we have a separate, NO WAITING entrance. For a 90 minute show, you really can't pay enough for seating, WITH a good view (while wearing 5 inch heels). We were actually taken by a employee to our table! I thought this was such a nice touch. We also had our own waitress who constantly made sure we had enough to eat and drink. The show is always so much fun. Even though I've seen the show numerous times, I was between laughing and complete awe the entire time. And you just can't beat going blind by Dita's costumes, which usually boast over 300,000 Swarovski crystals.
It was SO HOT in there (no pun intended). I know it was a little chilly in Los Angeles, but I was boiling.
The last time I saw her, the other performers did two shows, and Dita did four. There were twice as many performers, so there was only one performance each. I don't know if I really liked that. I felt like I didn't get enough of them.
My only other con is: I wanted to purchase a meet-and-greet ticket (even though in the past Dita has met with us dita.net members afterwards just through an email). When I went to look into it, the meet-and-greet had to be purchased separately and would have added almost 500.00 to our night. I just couldn't justify spending that much on top of our VIP tickets (and cocktails).
With that being said, a good friend, and fellow Dita.net member purchased the ticket. It came with a professional picture with Dita and a goodie bag with a signed copy of the program and her Dita Von Teese perfume (to name a few items, I believe more came with it). She had a really great experience and received her photo via email a few days later.
I urge you to see Dita at least once (and multiple times) in your life. I've been a HUGE fan since the late 90's. Her shows keep getting better and seeing her in the flesh is just beyond.
Dita will be performing at Gramercy Theater in New York City, March 6-9. Tickets are only available on the 8th and 9th as of the posting of this blog!
