Broke-Ass Giveaway: Cabinet of Curiosities Burlesque July 14th

The Bay's best newsletter for underground events & news

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 by midnight on July 12th. The winner will be chosen at random and notified on July 13th, one day before the show.

Cabinet of Curiosities Burlesque
Thursday, July 14th. 9pm
1208 Surf Avenue
Brooklyn, NY
[Coney Island]
