3201 N Halsted (Belmont), Chicago
Dinner seating at 7 PM. Two-set show at 8 PM.
The "Americans to Paris Roadshow" gets launched with what I'll call "Blues, Burlesque and Trouble with the Boys" because that's what you get when you mix up Kylie Bear, Barb Smith, Holly McGuire, myself (who, yes, will sing in English!) and Justin Harner at the piano.
The $20 cover is another bargain and a great way to donate to the collective sending of 20 Chicagoans to France for the next Chicago Paris Cabaret Connexion. The restaurant is taking reservations at 773-244-9191. There's no drink or dinner minimum but you won't be able to resist delicious food while we entertain you.
