25-Mar-2006 (Sat) Wherein there are both dancers and Texans.
Photos are up of the Burlesque Be'elzapalooza. A swell time was had by all. Pretty good turn-out, too! Along with the Usual Suspects, there was a new "ick" factor this time: a kissing booth where you could get yourself tongued by a clown with a mouth full of whipped cream. That is our role here: to bring you the very stuff of which nightmares are made.
And in national news:
Texas arresting people in bars for being drunk
SAN ANTONIO, Texas (Reuters) - Texas has begun sending undercover agents into bars to arrest drinkers for being drunk, a spokeswoman for the Texas Alcoholic Beverage Commission said on Wednesday.
The first sting operation was conducted recently in a Dallas suburb where agents infiltrated 36 bars and arrested 30 people for public intoxication, said the commission's Carolyn Beck.
Being in a bar does not exempt one from the state laws against public drunkenness, Beck said.

I had heard about the Texan police arresting drunken people in bars. However, isn't a bar (or any other place of business) considered private property?
I don't think ownership matters if the public can come and go. The legal distinction is probably more complex than that, but I'm fairly sure it's along those lines. <lj user="jwz"> can surely shed more light if he's of a mind to.
i was fully expecting the texan reference to be a picture of travis in the burlesque show.
You know, I actually expected some reference to me as well. One perhaps wearing a cowboy hat or something. Even though the joke woul dlikely have been at my expense, I'm a little disappointed, too.
oooh! can we go take silly cowboy hat pictures when i am there?
I have both camera and cowboy hats. And lots and lots of boozemahol ;)
hmmm! sounds like a group project in the works. maybe guerrilla western bar?
I'll see his camera and hat, and raise him boots and an on-demand, better-with-alcohol accent!
Wait, what is this accent of which you speak? If you're going out to you-know-where tonight, I shall ply you with drinks until I hear it!
tuesday night 10ish?
why is there no bar (that i know of) in SF with an electric bull?
this keeps getting better and better!
Hmm, the clown-snog thing sounds like a great way to pass cooties around.
