El Gaucho Seattle Hosts Sultry Summer Burlesque Shows

trailer Summer may be off to a slow start, but El Gaucho Seattle (http://www.elgaucho.com/) is bringing the heat with sizzling, all-new burlesque shows.

The brightest stars of the Seattle burlesque scene – Lily Verlaine, The Shanghai Pearl, Waxie Moon and Kitten LaRue – will grace El Gaucho’s swanky Pampas Room in a seductive new series of nostalgic cabaret shows. They’ll be joined onstage by several exciting special guests, like Miss Exotic World titleholders Alotta Boutte and contortionist Kristina Nekiya, Circus Contraption ringleader Armitage Shanks and tap dancer Mark Mendonca.

Each show includes four-course set dining with choice of entree. Tickets are $100 per person. Wine, cocktails and gratuity are not included; however, specialty cocktails and a discounted wine list are featured in the Pampas Room during the performance. Click here for full dinner menu.

“This summer we’re bringing the best of the best, with gorgeous dancers, elaborate costumes, and an abundance of feminine charm to go with the masculine El Gaucho steakhouse ambiance. Enjoy a long summer day and then join us for our spirited and extravagant cabaret shows in the lush comfort of the Pampas Room,” exhorts Miss Indigo Blue (http://www.missindigoblue.com/), a former Miss Exotic World competitor and frequent host of Pampas Room burlesque shows.
