We're not sure about the temps, but if your summer needs some heat, we've got two steamy events going down this week that you'll definitely want to know about.
If you haven't already seen "The Mistress Cycle," the hit musical that follows the lives of five infamous "other women," Ladies' Night seems like a good opportunity. Tonight's intimate evening starts at 5:45 p.m. at the Auditorium Theatre, and runs through Saturday, Aug. 8.
For $49, you can indulge in specialty martinis, hors d'oeuvres and a burlesque dance lesson, all courtesy of G Boutique, a Bucktown erotica and lingerie store. All audience members will then get the chance to sit on stage while the actors memorably bring to life such notorious mistresses as Anais Nin, Tess Walker, Diane de Poitiers, Lulu White and Ching. Call 312-922-2110 to reserve your spot.
If that seems rather tame to you, you're ready for "Naked Girls Reading." (Yes, you read that right.) Sunday, Aug. 9 is the next installment of this brazen bash, which this time around will be sporting an ice cream social theme. The sexy shenanigans take place from 7-10PM at Studio L'amour in the West Loop. You can pretty much use your imagination to figure out what the event will entail.
