PLAN DATE: THURS / JUNE 13
A bold, eccentric night with your person is always a treat, and the Immersive Intergalactic Burlesque Floor Show at House of M won’t disappoint when it comes to jaw-dropping, show-stopping entertainment. This all queer cast of superheroes and villains will absorb you in an immersive, subversive act of burlesque dance and cabaret singing, along with sideshow spectacles, sultry music and signature cocktails to carry the night. Tag along with the theme and get dressed up in what you see fit to wow an audience—if the mood is right, you or your love could be asked to participate in the show, and with your consent, it could be a night you seriously won’t forget.
After all that provocatively spectacular entertainment, take it down a notch and comfortably settle over a Mediterranean spread at Shuka. This bright, airy space serves up all the wholesome Middle Eastern faves that you’ll want to devour after a wild, immersive experience, like falafel, fried halloumi with spiced yogurt, and a deliciously vibrant pink hummus. There’s a host of flavorful dips and tasty kebabs to keep the good food flowing, and there will be no shortage of satisfaction and happy stomachs when you’ve made it through the menu and eaten your fill.
