For the most part, the good people that put on beer week cater to you. Special dinners, one off beers, new releases... there is no shortage of events for you during beer week. Last year in my Open Letter to our Readers on Arizona Beer Week I laid out a beer drinker taxonomy:
...there are three types of audiences that Beer Week traditionally caters to: The Beer Geek (for lack of a better word), the Casual Beer Drinker and those that are unfamiliar.
And then there is this. This disruptive force. This amazing re-think everything mold-breaking event. It applies to everyone. We need events like this and more of them because beer is FUN!
I am, of course, talking about Ska Brewing Presents: Breezi and the Deviant Dames Burlesque show at the Yucca Tap Room on Wednesday February 20th at 9PM. Please read no sarcasm into this. I mean it.
Breezi Walton, is a veteran beertender at Valley and regional treasure, Papago Brewing Company. According to Zach Ogle also of Papago, Breezi will be preforming original musical content and well there will be burlesque. Will it be of the Bob Fosse, or Gypse Rose Lee, or Dita Van Teese, or Al Jolson variety? I frankly do not know. It matters not. It's going to be an extravaganza of uproarious proportions I am sure.
UPDATE: More information from Breezi herself, "It's an old fashioned style Burlesque show. Ill be singing dancing. I have 2 background dancers, a stand up comedian and announcers. I choreographed 6 songs that we will be preforming. Some older, some newer. But it's like a funny fun teaser type show.... Costumes props and all."
I repeat: It's going to be an extravaganza of uproarious proportions I am sure.
