Super Bowl Sweepstakes – Win Tickets to a Burlesque Show

Super Bowl Sweepstakes – Win Tickets to a Burlesque Show

**Update** Congrats to Annmarie Aiello of Oak Ridge, NJ! You are a winnah! See you soon.

Hello friends! We are less than a week from Super Bowl LI, in which the New England Patriots will take on the Atlanta Falcons. Tom Brady vs. … some guy who isn’t Tom Brady?

Ok, I googled. It’s this guy. Matt Ryan.
But hi Tom!

We thought we’d celebrate by giving away some tickets.

But fear not, non-football fans. You don’t have to be a Pats fan or a Falcons fan to participate. This is food-related. Cakeballs, to be exact. Delicious Cakeballs baked by our own Luscious Lane of Auntie Liana’s.

The winner gets two tickets to one of our shows AND a sampler of the winning Cakeball. Amazing! All you have to do is vote below and you’ll be entered to win.


On Monday, we will randomly pick a winner from the corresponding winning team. For example, if you picked Peach Chardonnay, and Atlanta wins, you could be a winner!

This contest will run until midnight (ET) on game day (Sunday, Feb 5) so hurry and enter. (One entry per person, please.)

Thanks so much and we’ll see you on the gridiron. Er, Flatiron?

xoxo,
HK

LL: How long have you been burlesquing?

I started Burlesque in 2013. We danced to Santa Baby.

LL: What drew you/draws you to burlesque?

I started off in a class. It turned out to be a lot of fun. So, I signed up for the performance opportunities.

LL: What do you do when you’re not burlesquing?

I’m spending time with my family, keeping up with current news, working, and whatever else I’m in the mood for when I’m not burlesquing.

LL: I was inspired by your burlesque name to create a cakeball flavor. Any guesses as to what I have up my sleeve?

My guess would be something citrus. Maybe lemon.

LL: How long have you been burlesquing?

I’ve been doing burlesque since June 2014.

LL: What drew you/draws you to burlesque?

Burlesque is Freedom. There is no ideal feminine form that is identified as solely being “sexy” or “beautiful”. We all are. Period. I’ve shared the stage with women in their twenties and their sixties simultaneously. Each body is telling a story of their life’s journey to Freedom on the stage. Every stretch mark, every scar, every ripple of cellulite…Freedom.

I’ve had some amazing women as teachers & mentors and cultivated strong friendships. I accept and embrace every perfect imperfection that is my physical body & own my sexuality on my terms unapologetically. For a woman in this culture, that is Freedom.

LL: What do you do when you’re not burlesquing?

When I’m not burlesquing, I’m healing people with my superpowers, or writing science fiction stories. I must stay in some creative avenue in my daily life.

LL: I was inspired by your burlesque name to create a cakeball flavor. Any guesses as to what I have up my sleeve?

Well, since I’m always underestimated, I’m going to say it’s probably something extra sugary sweet with some frosting-like filling. Hahahaha – but it should be a dark and indefinable taste that lingers long after you’ve wiped your lips.

Come get your own taste of this Vixen! Get your tickets for the CakeBall Masquerade today.

LL: How long have you been burlesquing?

Three years.

LL: What drew you/draws you to burlesque?

I love the whole creative process of taking a musical piece and creating live theater with dance choreography, acting, costumes, etc. and bringing alive a character for
audience enjoyment. It’s so much more than the tease – it showcases the beauty of the feminine physique in all its shapes, sizes, ages and colors!

LL: What do you do when you’re not burlesquing?

When I’m not burlesquing, I’m working, spending time with my family, my sweet English bulldog and friends. I volunteer at a non-profit organization that supports the hungry and homeless. I’m also taking Bikram, singing, dance and film acting classes.

LL: I was inspired by your burlesque name to create a cakeball flavor. Any guesses as to what I have up my sleeve?

Vanilla citrus!

Sexy Quiz: What’s Your Cakeball Flavor?

Sexy Quiz: What’s Your Cakeball Flavor?

Luscious Lane is throwing a party to celebrate cakeballs and she was inspired by some of her favorite burlesque flavors. Have you ever wondered what YOUR cakeball flavor would be? Well wonder no more. Take this quiz and find out.

What’s Your Cakeball Flavor?

Are you dark and decadent like Double Chocolate or light and fruity like Raspberry Champagne? Take this quiz and find out. (And click here to get up close and personal with some ‘flavors’ at Luscious Lane’s CakeBall Masquerade.)

Red Velvet

You are classic, old-school. Authentic, honest and down-to-earth. A loyal friend who is always ready with an encouraging word and a stiff drink. You are like coming home on a rainy night to a cozy couch, a roaring fire and a dry martini.

Salted Caramel

You are a little salty and a little sweet. You have a wicked sense of humor and are always up for a road trip. You like to drink tequila and wear cowboy boots and you make a great wingman (or woman).

Raspberry Champagne

You are classy and confident with high standards. You’re a winner who expects the best and gets it. You speak several languages and won’t take ‘no’ for an answer in any of them. You know all the hottest spots in town and you always take UberBLACK.

Lemon Dream

You are cheerful and optimistic, a sunny force to be reckoned with. You are an early riser, but everyone loves you anyway, because you are so much fun to be around. You are light and effervescent, like a chilled glass of Prosecco.

Vanilla Chai

You are laid-back and mellow and smell faintly of cloves. You are on a spiritual quest even if you rarely leave the house. You dream of selling your belongings and backpacking across Southeast Asia. You may have dabbled in the occult.

Double Chocolate

You are passionate and sensual and thoroughly self-indulgent. You work hard and play hard and are always chasing that next high. You’ve probably taken a selfie with a tiger.

Your go-to drink?

Something fruity

A highball, because I miss Mad Men

A chilled glass of Rose

Shot of Fireball

I don’t drink and I’m judging you for asking

LL: How long have you been burlesquing?

I’ve been on the scene for about two years.

LL: What drew you/draws you to burlesque?

I was attracted to the freedom of burlesque. I love how everyone accepts their body as it is and isn’t afraid to put it all out there. I grew up in a more conservative household in terms of how we discussed sex/sexuality/body image, so to see girls not afraid of putting it all out there is fascinating and thrilling. I still tend to be a more private person offstage but I love that I can be anyone I want to be when I’m up there dancing.

LL: What do you do when you’re not burlesquing?

I am a socialite without a million dollar bank account.

LL: I was inspired by your burlesque name to create a cakeball flavor. Any guesses as to what I have up my sleeve?

Well…my name is a flavor so I feel like you got off easy on this one! I’m thinking it is a spicy apple cider type cakeball. Although if it was inspired by me, there should also be some shots of whiskey in them.

Come get spicy with Spiced Cider! Get your tickets for the CakeBall Masquerade.

LL: How long have you been burlesquing?

I started in August 2014 in a group number with the Pink Chardonnays. My first solo was in October of 2014.

LL: What drew you/draws you to burlesque?

Burlesque empowers me so I can feel more comfortable with feeling vulnerable and embodying that there is strength in that. It’s also opened my creativity in new and ever expanding ways. It allows me to express myself playfully.

IMG_0775

LL: What do you do when you’re not burlesquing?

I am attending burlesque shows. I am an avid Soul Cycle spinner. I recently started strength training with a competitive strong woman and it’s surprised me how much I enjoy doing deadlifts. It’s been great for my inner strength too. I’ve dabbled in trapeze. And I like to try new things. I’d be remiss if I didn’t say I enjoy sharing yummy food with dear friends. And I have four nieces and nephews who range in age from 13 to 20. I really enjoy spending time with each of them, as they are unique and I like them as much as I love them.

LL: I was inspired by your burlesque name to create a cakeball flavor. Any guesses as to what I have up my sleeve?

Well my tag line is I’m tart and intoxicating so I’m guessing that’s the theme. But you may need to add some pop rocks for effervescence and cayenne for spice to get all of me. Okay, it’s probably a little sweet too.

Let Lulu’s sparkle intoxicate YOU! Get your tickets for the CakeBall Masquerade.

There are less than two weeks until Luscious Lane’s CakeBall Masquerade, a burlesque review featuring some sweet and sexy “flavors.” Luscious Lane sat down with some of the performers who inspired her. Meet Shimmy LeCouer.

LL: How long have you been burlesquing?

I started burlesque dancing four-and-a-half glorious years ago. I was actually taking the Burlesque Bikini Bootcamp class and they offered a workshop for their Christmas show. Sometimes there are funny reasons that bring you to something that becomes such a wonderful part of your life. Regardless, I needed something to step outside my comfort zone and thought, what could do that more than stripping down on stage? It became the best experience of my life.

LL: What drew you/draws you to burlesque?

Not only have I met so many wonderful, amazing women who have become so important in my life, but I have found a side of myself that was hidden and needed to be expressed. I wouldn’t trade my burlesque life for anything.

LL: What do you do when you’re not burlesquing?

During the day I am a nurse. When I started burlesque dancing I was going to nursing school and found ways to dance while studying and working full time. Burlesque was my escape from all the craziness that was my life at the time. So during the day, I take care of people medically. During the night I shimmy into their hearts and give them a glorious jumpstart.

LL: I was inspired by your burlesque name to create a cakeball flavor. Any guesses as to what I have up my sleeve?

I think my burlesque flavor would be sweet but have a sexiness about it. My dances start out sweet but always end with a level of sexiness shimmying across the stage.

Let Shimmy shimmy across the stage and jumpstart YOUR heart. Get your tickets for the CakeBall Masquerade today.
