Marilyn Artus, co-founder of The Girlie Show, has organized a leg of the burlesque life-drawing group which will meet at AKA Gallery (Google Maps link) one Sunday a month. The first meeting will be this Sunday, January 25th, from 6 - 10 pm. You must be 21 to attend, and there is a $10 cover. Ilsa the Wolf will be our first model. And I am so there.
