The Contemporary Arts Center's annual summer fundraiser celebrates with nods to Prohibition and the heyday of burlesque. Former Bourbon Street burlesque dancer Wild Cherry makes a cameo appearance and Bourbon House's Bourbon Society runs a speakeasy. There also are performances by dancers from several local burlesque troupes, including Fleur de Tease, Queerlesque, Storyville Starlettes and Reverend Spooky LeStrange and Her Billion Dollar Baby Dolls. Linnzi Zaorski and Jayna Morgan and the Creole Syncopators entertain in the music lounge, and aerialists Angele Eve and Mystic Ponies twirl from the rafters. Bourbon House serves oysters, sandwiches, boudin balls and desserts, and there are bourbon cocktails featuring Buffalo Trace, Wild Turkey, Templeton and Russell's Reserve. Advance tickets $30 CAC members/$80 general admission, at the door $40 CAC members/$80 general admission. — Will Coviello
