WORKSHOP: Now, here's something many of us nerdy San Franciscans can benefit from -- Burlesque Basics for the Shy & Awkward, in which Virgie Tovar, aka Dulce de Lecherous, will teach "sexy book worms and the flirty Frasier-enthusiasts" "the difference between a shimmy and a bump and the power of eye contact" and how to choose your "burly alter ego, and practice your new moves."
