NEast Village, Manhattan, NYC

Burlesque star Gal Friday performs at Ray’s Spectacular 78th Birthday Burlesque Extravaganza last night.

Bob and Eden brought the cake.

Gal Friday brought the moves…and the laughs:

Friday: “It’s OK — you can touch…”

Ray: “No, I think I’ll have a heart attack.”

And loyal customer Constanza Mirre brought Ray a new fur hat for his birthday.

Good times had by all!

More photos (those were the most PG-rated ones I had…) and reviews:

Via Vivienne Gucwa’s (aka nythroughthelens) flickr here

Via E.V. Grieve (by way of of jdx) here

Via Patrick Hedlund at DNAinfo here

Lincoln Anderson of The Villager was there, as well. We all suggested that a “boobie tassel” pic would make a fine cover photo for next week’s issue… UPDATE: Ray made the cover!

Bob, Eden and John Penley should also have pictures up soon. UPDATE: Here, here, and here.

Thanks to everyone who came out!
