Burlesque Downtown Underground
calls itself "Kansas City's classiest burlesque company." See why at this year's Valentine's Day–themed performance Love Drugged
, which features Mariel a la Mode, a St. Louis–based circus performer and aerialist (whose bio name-drops Willie Nelson and 90210
), and the troupe's newest members, Lolita Bonita and Lilly Darlin'. Can BDU live up to your most elegant blue-balled expectations? Find out at Retro (1518 McGee, 816-421-4201) at 10 p.m. Cover costs $10 at the door (cash only). For more information, see kcburlesque.com
