Getting Naughty with Dottie Lux and La Chica Boom
For advice on where to have a sexy good time, always ask a professional. Our cover models, Dottie Lux and La Chica Boom, have performed in bars, nightclubs and theatres throughout the Bay Area, and elsewhere. They both perform as part of the burlesque ensemble Red Hots Burlesque, and La Chica performs at clubs and theatres, most recently at CounterPulse.
As we perused the charming décor of the new Armory Club, Lux noted the classy ambiance with a kink-friendly edge that, she noted with a glance at the framed bondage art, is obviously a place that’s welcoming for the average patron, but also cool enough where most wouldn’t blink at the mention of ball-gags.
So, where can one enjoy a night out that’s sexy but not sleazy, fun but not frumpy? Lux took pride in recommending her frequent performance venue, El Rio (3158 Mission St. www.elriosf.com).
"I have the whole night to chow down on yummy meatballs at Emmy’s Spaghetti shack or fried chicken at The Front Porch," said Lux. "Usually, after some sustenance (this girl likes to eat), I head back to El Rio because it really is my dive."
The Red Hots Burlesquers flutter their fans each Wednesday and Friday night, from 7:30pm- to 9pm. January 3, 2013 rings in their new event, Bacon, Babes and Bingo. They’re also busy with private holiday parties through year’s end.
La Chica Boom’s faves also include El Rio for its diversity, and Aunt Charlie’s Lounge (133 Turk St. at Taylor. 441-2922. www.auntcharlieslounge.com).
