No-Tell Motel

Open run: Wed 10 PM

If you need a little burlesque excitement to make it through your workweek, look no further than No-Tell Motel, the weekly showcase dubbed Best Midweek Burlesque Break in our 2014 Best of Chicago issue. Reader contributor Jay Gentile writes that the "hump-day party features pyrotechnics and dancers humping power sanders that spray streams of sparks into the audience." So maybe bring some protective eyewear.
