Dear Burlesque Friends and Family!
It’s me, Minnie Tonka! I’m so thrilled to be back at the 2015 Burlesque Hall of Fame Weekend in Las Vegas! The weekend got off to an amazing start last night with a fantastic Movers, Shakers, and Innovators Showcase hosted by everyone’s favourites, Jonny Porkpie and Blanche Debris. They killed it!

 

I cannot wait to whoop it up with you all this weekend – reuniting with old friends and making new ones! And if you’re not here in Vegas, please feel free to live vicariously through me here on 21st Century Burlesque and on social media (Twitter and Instagram).
