It Started With Some Woop Woop

Jessica planned a special night this weekend for me and some girlfriends to celebrate my birthday. After a delicious glass of Woop Woop at my place (thanks Kristina) we headed over to our reserved table for the 7 o'clock Candy Girl Cabaret show at Maxine's Hideaway. Maxine's offers a unique dining and entertainment experience in the heritage space that was once an infamous brothel. It's Vancouver's only cabaret restaurant & lounge featuring Broadway Burlesque entertainment. It's provocative, classy and sexy. The girls dance and sing such burlesque favourites as the Roxanne tango from Moulin Rouge, Candyman and I Want Candy, naturally. Let me tell you, those girls were awesome! And they made me want to dance. I'm seriously considering taking a class at the Harbour Dance Centre after watching that show on Saturday night.

We were treated like royalty and the food and wine were delish. I definitely recommend this spot for a fun night out. The place was packed with birthday parties and stags, which made it a really fun atmosphere. We had a blast! I think it could be a pretty hot date spot too. Just sayin'.

Jess gave me the sweetest card (which obviously made me cry at the table) and the most beautiful necklace. Here I am showing it off. The charm says the word "inspire"...I love it.

When the show was over, we headed to The Lamplighter in Gastown so that we could bust out some moves of our own and shake our booties on the dance floor. Thanks for an absolutely fantastic evening, girls!
