If you're looking for some Burlesque tonight (and hey, who isn't?) you need to head down to the House of Blues this evening and tomorrow evening (doors open at 8:00 pm) when Dita Von Teese will take New Orleans by storm with her thrilling “Be Cointreauversial” performance. Guests will enjoy Cointreau cocktails and wait in anticipation while being treated to a bevy of special guests, including Mr. Murray Hill, priming them for Dita Von Teese’s arrival. Following the opening performances, attendees will be wowed as Dita Von Teese bathes in a life size Cointreau glass, embellished with Swarovski crystals. Dita Von Teese’s extraordinary performance will certainly set the bar high for the rest of the week’s events at Tales of the Cocktail!! (Tickets are about $40...but you get a great show and drinks!!)
