Sure it’s a blast to take a stroll along the Coney Island boardwalk, shoving a Nathan’s hotdog in your face while waiting for your turn on the Cyclone. But don’t forget about the attraction that has had New Yorkers trekking across Brooklyn for over 100 years: Coney Island’s famous freaks.
The oddball tradition is still alive and well in the form of Cabinet of Curiosities Burlesque, a 10-act display of shimmying and shaking all hosted by flame-swallower Lady Aye. It’s a show not to be missed, so we’re giving away a pair of tickets to one lucky reader.
To enter, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org by midnight on July 12th. The winner will be chosen at random and notified on July 13th, one day before the show.
