Bedroom Burlesque: Keep your relationship sizzling

Everyone knows that sometimes relationships begin to fizzle, and people stop looking at each other longingly. Couples become so preoccupied with day-to-day routines, they forget to notice their other half, their coexisting partner. Soon, the television set becomes the neutral zone, the place where they spend quality time without ever having to really engage with each other. That's exactly what the lovely ladies at Self Serve hope to alleviate by providing a class that will hopefully bring back some of the spark and sizzle that makes the beginning of a relationship so exciting. Tonight, ladies (and their significant others) can join Cookie for a lesson on how to perform a burlesque routine, from spinning tassles to mastering the art of the tease. This event might not only help bring the heat back to the bedroom but will also provide a glimpse of an art form that is still alive and kicking, still ruminating with old jazz standards and sultry sensations. The class starts at 7:30pm, and the tickets go for $20 for a single person and $35 for couples. Self Serve • Tue Oct 8 • 7:30pm • $20 a person, $35 a pair • View on Alibi calendar

Tonight! Neighborhood-wide Christmas sales at the Nob Hill Park and Shop

To make up for the “apocalyptic windstorm from hell" that damned this year’s Nob Hill Shop and Stroll, local business in the area will offer extended hours and deep discounts tonight.

More than 40 stores are expected to participate, says event organizer and Self Serve co-owner Matie Fricker. Visit on.fb.me/parkandshop to see what’s shaking.

Nowhere near Nob Hill? We’ve got suggestions for other mom and pops in your neck of the woods in our Last-Minute Gift Guide.

Last Minute Gift Guide

Nob Hill Park and Shop

Nob Hill's Shop and Stroll was besieged by "an apocalyptic windstorm from hell" this year, says Self Serve owner Matie Fricker. It's supposed to be the biggest sales day on the calendar. But the weather depressed turnout, which was "really damaging for our bottom line," she says. It added momentum to a downward trend that started before the winter. "Many local businesses we love have closed in the last year."
