The Oregon Trail Burlesque

Chicago, Illinois

Okay, so there wasn't ever really anything sexy about the Oregon Trail, but the Gorilla Tango Burlesque troop is aiming to fix that with The Oregon Trail Burlesque: You Have Died of Sexy. Scheduled to run every Friday night in Bucktown from January 10 to April 11, 2014, this show mixes elements of the original computer game with a film noir-style murder mystery, all performed by lovely, scantily-clad ladies. It's obviously 18 and up, but at least you don't have to worry about contracting dysentery.

Boobs of the Dead
     

Boobs of the Dead

Chicago, Illinois

Ever wonder what The Walking Dead might be like as a burlesque show? No? Well luckily the people at the Gorilla Tango Theater have. Boobs of the Dead is the result — a parody/tribute to the comic and show featuring a potent mix of gore and sex appeal. Think stripping zombie dancers and you've got the idea. Back again for its second year, this well-recieved show is getting a lengthier run — Fridays and Saturdays from October 4th to December 27 — so if you missed out on it last year, here's your chance.

Walker on the Green
     

Walker on the Green

Minneapolis, Minnesota

While we typically prefer real golf to the miniature version, there's little doubt that Walker on the Green is a round worth playing. Created to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the Minneapolis Sculpture Garden, this putt-putt attraction offers two eight-hole courses designed by local architects, artists, and engineers. Among the unique holes are a geodesic dome housing a scale-model of the Walker building, a gravity well, an ant farm, and a garden gnome foosball table. Open now through September 8. [via]

Wee Waa Show

Wee Waa, Australia

We know what you're thinking — why are we writing about a small festival in a town of 2,100 when there are so many other things to do? Well, it's probably because Daft Punk will be launching their first new album since 2005 at the Wee Waa Show. Apart from the Daft Punk performance — only 4,000 tickets will be available, and they go on sale this Friday — this weekend-long festival (May 17-19) also features horse events, clowns, a talent competition, a pet show, a sawing competition, fireworks, and a demolition derby. Because who cares about two faceless French guys when there's cars to be smashed, right?

Christmas Vacation Screenings
     

Christmas Vacation Screenings

It's that time of year again. Time for gift buying, family gatherings, and attending screenings of National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation. While many people, including us, tend to hold such affairs at home, that doesn't mean there aren't plenty of options for those who'd rather venture out to watch the hilarity in a larger group — and with alcoholic beverages available, in many cases.

Click here to see the full list of screenings for this year and if you know of one that's not on the list, don't hesitate to get in touch.

The Empire Brings Sexy Back
     

The Empire Brings Sexy Back

Chicago, Illinois

Sexy zombies not your thing? Perhaps Star Wars is more your speed. The Empire Brings Sexy Back is a new burlesque show loosely based on Episode V, from the writer of Walking Dead send-up Boobs of the Dead. Told from Vader's point of view, the show features "flirtatious furballs, busty muppets," and a drop-dead sexy take on everyone's favorite jet-packed bounty hunter. Runs through December 29.
