The Beggar's New Year's Eve Ball

1 of 50



The Beggar's New Year's Eve Ball featured the best elements of the Carnivale, wrapped up in a cloud of feathers and glitz for the biggest party night of the year. All your favorites -- Lola van Ella, Sammich the Tramp, Lula Houp Garou -- plus special guest performers came together to create a bonanza of burlesque, aerialists and Vaudeville. The Ball at Casa Loma Ballroom (3354 Iowa Avenue), included the show, appetizer buffet and Champagne toast. -- Paul Friswold

Fabulous pictures of an amazing show. It was a fantastic night. Scott19674 obviously you've never been to Beggar's, which in addition to fire performers, mimes, a magical hobo, pole and lots of circus acts is backed by an amazing LIVE band.

Oh, goody, more burlesque.  It's nice to see that with all the music going on in this town on NYE, you give ink to a bunch of attention-grubbing chicks with boas.
