Grace Gotham's Peel Me A Glove

  • Sid Gold's Request Room (map)

Grace Gotham and the core cast of Peel Me A Glove (Chris Johnson, Karina Libido, and Holly Honeypot) bring you the SIZZLING late summer edition of our monthly caburlesque! 

The August 2017 edition features very special burlesque guests:

GAL FRIDAY (Known as "The Five Alarm Fire of Burlesque," this NYC-based, true bump-n-grinding, booty-shaking queen has dazzled audiences in countless locales, such as Las Vegas, Toronto, New Orlleans, Bermuda, Jamaica, and St. Petersburg Russia - to name only a few. An expert at performing to live music and working the room in the most fun and memorable ways, Gal Friday will, no doubt, set the room ablaze this coming Tuesday when she performs to the live piano stylings of Chris Johnson).  
SAPPHIRE JONES (This Sauvignon-Blanc-sipping burlesque performer, actress, and mistress of ceremonies is a core member and co-producer of Wasabassco Burlesque who produces/hosts the monthly Wasabassco shows at City Winery New York and City Winery Atlanta, as well as performing regularly around the city at Bathtub Gin, Bellhouse, House of Yes, and more. In addition to charming (and stimulating the hearts and intellects of) audiences wherever she performs, Sapphire hosts the BadAss Bitch Podcast which features various fascinating, scandalous, and intelligent guests who should be heard and known -- just like her!). 

Expect the unexpected cabaret set - ranging from Cole Porter and The Sex Pistols to the Moody Blues and The Smiths to Grace originals - at this show where whimsy and sophistication collide and elegance mingles with naughty. Starring (and produced by) your host for the evening, burlesque artist and chanteuse GRACE GOTHAM, this monthly show at Sid Gold's Request Room brings back the banter to burlesque a la Gypsy Rose Lee, Sophie Tucker, and Fannie Brice -- with a little Lucille Ball and Grace Kelly mixed in. Always the gracious host, Grace emcees the evening accompanied by pianist CHRIS JOHNSON and treats you to two top-drawer burlesque guest stars each month. And - golly gee - it's only 10 Clams ($10) at the door (via cash or credit card) for a pearl of a show! 

Our glamorous #dreamteam resident KARINA LIBIDO keeps all of our i's dotted and t's crossed onstage and our fabulous front-of-house mademoiselle, HOLLY HONEYPOT, collects your Hamiltons with fanfare and flair. 

After the show, hang out with the cast, sip expertly-made cocktails, and indulge in the live piano karaoke (led by the fantastic Mark Piro!) where any and all are welcome to take a turn or two at the mic. 

Sid Gold's Request Room offers table service and a full food menu, in addition to its fabulous full bar offerings (drinks expertly made by the unparalleled Kern Rodriguez) -- so you can enjoy the show in seated, civilized surroundings eating and drinking till your heart's content!
