Somewhere in the realm between burlesque and drag you will find Chardonnay LaTease, the Queen of Wine, who joins us Feb. 18 all the way from Albany, NY. This impressive impresario hosts Burlesque on the Rocks, a monthly show at Capital District nightspot Rocksand is also an actor and producer. Chardonnay has rescue pup named Louie, and this is his story:

My Louie was rescued from a home that abused and neglected him. He became part of my life…we spend the days lazy in the park or cuddled up on the bed. Dogs are meant to be loved and they give love back. He is not the most perfect or normal dog there is, but he is mine. After his years before me, I make sure he does not go without and I give him lots of food and hugs.

Clearly, Louie is #oneluckypup!

We hope you can join us on Feb 18 at the Met Room to support Pilots to the Rescue, an org that goes far and wide to bring luck and love to puppies in shelters across the U.S. who are in danger of being euthanized. A great show for a great cause! Click here for more info.

LFF Co-founder and producer Ruby Mechant is passionate about many things, but rescue animals in particular. Here are some of her “babies” and how they came to be part of her sparkly universe.

In her own words:

Cleo reclines on the beach

My family became pit bull aficionados by mistake. We really didn’t know we were picking up at the shelter Cleo, our very first pit. She lived a very long and happy life chasing cats and squirrels in Lake Como.

Asia with Ruby

 

Asia was a rescue too. Her previous family left her at the shelter at the age of two because they were having a baby and they said she was “too much to handle.” Well, if you don’t know how to train a dog even the tiniest chihuahua can become too much.

The newest edition – Bailey

As to the cat side, here in NYC you can say that Bailey aka ‘Queen B’ (not because of Beyonce, but because the little snitch knows she is beautiful), will take possession of my apartment and begin her residency on Feb 14th. She was abandoned by her previous family because they moved to a building that does not allow pets – so sure just get rid of your cat. Because of that she is a tad temperamental and she has to be the only cat in the house. It’s gonna be a slow journey with her but it’s not the first time that the rescue I volunteer has given me divas. I’m sure she will get used to feather boas and sparkly costumes soon!

Ruby and the rest of the LFF team are working hard behind the scenes to make Unleashed: Pilots, Puppies and Pasties an amazing show to benefit an amazing organization. Pilots to the Rescue is dedicated to making sure animals like Cleo, Asia and Bailey find their very own Ruby. Won’t you join us on February 18 at the Met Room to support them? Details below.

Attached is a pic of my two childhood dogs with me, both rescues.

A little about them: Princess was on her last day at the pound when she became my family’s favorite member when I was five. In eighth grade, Zoey came for a trial stay. My loyalties were with Princess, so I protested. But by the end of the weekend, there was no way Zoey was going back. She would never be thrown against a wall after a bad day at work again.
Princess was the sweetest soul who ever lived. She wagged her whole body when she was happy. Zoey knew that every person she met loved her, and would climb onto anybody’s lap to be pet. She also knew that people loved her even MORE in clothes, so she LOVED wearing her little pink dress.

Come see this dog-lover and the rest of the sexy lineup on Saturday, February 18 at the Metropolitan Room.
