Attention, fans of burlesque: This weekend, your D-cups overfloweth. It’s time again for the New York Burlesque Festival, and the debauched fun starts tonight at the Bell House, with a teaser party hosted by the World Famous *BOB* and DJ Momotaro. Friday’s premiere party is at Brooklyn Bowl, and the Saturday Spectacular (a jam-packed event that more than lives up to its name) takes place at B.B. King’s. There are workshops Saturday afternoon at the New York School of Burlesque, and a burlesque bazaar on Sunday afternoon at the Royal Palms Shuffleboard Club in Brooklyn. And finally, on Sunday night, the Golden Pasties awards are presented at the Highline Ballroom, with categories like the Hot Buns Award and the Khaleesi Award, for the burlesque performer most likely to rule the Seven Kingdoms. Thankfully, they’re starting with this one.
Fri., Sept. 26, 8 p.m.; Sat., Sept. 27, 8 p.m.; Sun., Sept. 28, 8 p.m., 2014
