From June’s Big Gay Burlesque Show to October’s All Hallows’ Tease, SA's fun-loving Pastie Pops always know how to (un)dress for a special occasion — and Christmas is no exception. Strong contenders in our Best of San Antonio readers’ poll and a driving force behind the San Antonio Burlesque Festival, the troupe celebrates its fifth anniversary this month while getting festively unwrapped for its annual Christmas Burrr-lesque Show.

Hosted by the lovely and talented Camille Toe, the evening of bumping, grinding and jingle bell-shaking features performances by troupe mainstays — Vixy Van Hellen, Elle Du Jour, Betty Cash, Mary Annette, Paige MeLater and Jasper St. James — and Pastie Pops alumni, including Gaige, Olympia DeWinter and Madame SinClaire. Guests are encouraged to don their ugliest holiday sweaters for a chance to win prizes.

Pastie Pops' Christmas Burrr-lesque Show
$10-$15, doors at 8pm, show at 9pm Sat, The Uptown Studio, 700 Fredericksburg Road,
