Richmond, VA, August 06, 2014 --(PR.com
)-- Local burlesque troupe Those Freaking Weirdos and Richmond Brewery Tours announce their joint venture – Brew Tour and Burlesque, a brewery tour package that concludes at Strangeways Brewing for the Brews & Burlesque show. This tour will be the first regularly-scheduled such package in the region, on the second Friday of each month. Brews & Burlesque is unique in both the burlesque and craft brew communities as the first burlesque show ever to be held in the tasting room of a brewery.
Richmond Brewery Tours is the premier brewery tour experience in Richmond Virginia. The knowledgeable staff drive patrons on a tour of the Commonwealth’s finest craft beer in comfortable fourteen passenger buses. The $65 tour includes a brief course on beer tasting, visits to three breweries, a guided tour at one of the breweries, snacks and refreshments during the ride, a Richmond Brewery Tours souvenir, and one ticket to Brews & Burlesque with reserve seating. Patrons will leave from Strangeways Brewing's rear parking lot at 5:30pm.
Those Freaking Weirdos is comprised of four performers: Moxie LaBouche (“one hot mess”), Dante the Inferno (“the right tool for the job”), Melody Magpie (“princess of the burly-cute”), and their emcee, Dev L. Ish (“properly improper”). They perform in the neo-burlesque style, which involves more gimmicks and comedy than the satin gloves and feather boas of the classic burlesque style. Each Brews & Burlesque show will also showcase a promising new performer. Music and lighting will be provided by local DJ, Jesse James Felice.
The tasting room at Strangeways Brewing, which opened last June and features two dozen house-brewed varieties, extends its hours for Brews & Burlesque. Normal hours are Monday through Thursday 4-9pm, Friday 4-10pm, Saturday 12-10pm and Sunday 12-7pm. Food trucks are on hand almost daily. Strangeways Brewing beers are carried by nearly 100 local restaurants in the metro Richmond area. Strangeways Brewing is located at 2277A Dabney Rd, Richmond, VA 23230.
All shows begin at 9pm; doors open at 8:30. Tickets are available online through richmondbrewerytours.com and tfwburlesque.com/buy and are $65 per person. Regular show tickets are $8 in advance and $10 at the door; cash and credit/debit cards accepted. Patrons must be 21 or older. Please designate a driver or call a cab if you are intoxicated.
