Who does the finest tassel-twirling and tail-feather–shaking in the world? Find out tonight when the spandex-clad Scotty the Blue Bunny hosts the Golden Pastie Awards, where burlesque’s bawdiest stars compete in categories such as “Positively Perfect Posterior” and “Most Likely to Win RuPaul’s Drag Race.” The show includes performances from local pros including Helen Pontani, Little Brooklyn, and Boo Boo Darlin, as well as international performers Miss Glitter Pain Killer from France and Flora & Leyla from Amsterdam, among others. The ceremony is the final event of the 11th annual New York Burlesque Festival, which kicks off Thursday with a party at Le Poisson Rouge (158 Bleecker Street) hosted by the woman with the most dangerous curves in NYC, The World Famous *BOB*.
