Dec. 2: Hot Winter Night in Sebastopol

Anyone looking for a holiday-themed event that’s both a little bit naughty and a little bit nice need look no further than this week’s Winter Masquerade, the annual holiday performance from the long-running Cabaret de Caliente. Featuring a lineup of burlesque, belly dance, circus acts and an array of vendors, the cabaret joins forces with several local DJs spinning throughout the night. The show will also raise funds for the Russian River Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence through a raffle. Guests are invited to dress in winter-white attire, including masquerade masks, and join the fun on Friday, Dec. 2, at HopMonk Tavern, 230 Petaluma Ave., Sebastopol. 9pm. $15–$20; $50–$60 VIP (21 and over).
