[DC local] Valentine's Day Burlesque-a-pades!

Once again, monsteralice and I will be celebrating Valentine's Day by going to "Burlesque-A-Pades" at the Birchmere. This is a highly entertaining burlesque revue featuring the world-famous Pontani Sisters and a lot more.

There was lots to like when we went in the past...

This is the ticket link, though if you're in the area on a night when the Birchmere is open, buying tix directly will save you the exorbitant Ticketb****rdMaster fees...

Haiti relief

Many people have posted about various fine organizations supplying relief to victims of the Haiti earthquake, so I thought I'd chime in with my favored Haiti-related charity:

The Lambi Fund. They're Haitian-based, have very low overhead, and do a lot of good work. Like any of the charities already on the ground in Haiti, they got hit hard by this and can use any help they can get.

FWIW, I have so far also contributed to the International Rescue Committee and the American Red Cross International Response Fund.

Thank you.
