On Cinco de Mayo, May 5, the pop-culture forces of burlesque and Mexican-style Loteria bingo converge at the Bossanova Ballroom with ¬Å“Dames & Games¬Â. Orchestre L'Pow! will present a one-of-a-kind date night with plenty of shake and shimmy and ¬Å“couples-oriented¬Â prizes (use your dirty imagination) for the lucky Loteria winners.

Loteria is Mexico's national bingo game, using pictures instead of letters and numbers. Dating back to the 1880s, Loteria images like La Sirena (the mermaid), El Diablito (the little devil) and El Borracho (the drunk) have made their way into U.S. pop culture, appearing on everything from T-shirts to handbags to skateboards.

Featured Burlesque Performers will be nationally renowned Charlotte Treuse (2011 ¬Å“Burlesque Hall of Fame Weekend¬Â nominee (Las Vegas, NV), headliner at Bustout Burlesque, May 2011 (New Orleans, LA)), acclaimed Portland burlesque producer Madison Moon, and Infamous Nina Nightshade (2011 Burlesque Hall of Fame Weekend Showcase nominee). The event will be MC'd by international burlesque MC, Vincent Drambuie.

Orchestre L'Pow! has delivered pasty-twirling tunes for some of the most enticing members of the NW region's Neo-Burlesque and Alt-Tease troupes, including the Heavenly Spies, Rose City Shimmy, the tattooed seductresses of the Suicide Girls, The Gun Street Girls, Atomic Bombshells and the Glam-O-Rama Girly Show.

    I have recently resolved to fill my days with more fun filled and off the wall activities. This is an activity that even Speedy Gonzales would be jealous of! I could also treat my “father-in-law” to something he hasn’t seen in a long time.

    How much can you know about yourself if you’ve never been in a Dirty Loteria Game? I don’t wanna die without any innuendos made about Mexican Bingo. So come on; hit me with tickets before I lose my nerve.

    porque mi señorita bonita y yo merecemos escapar de nuestro
    vida diaria medio-aburrida un momento para salir de noche y disfrutar una cita caliente jugando lotería en la Bosanova.
    You feel me?

    I have never to this day managed to celebrate Cinco De Mayo properly. I have been in America for about 10 years now and every year I either have to work, or travel, or something comes up. This year I have finally gotten myself to a place where I can afford to take the 5th of May off, and I would love nothing more than to celebrate it with my girlfriend and my favorite things – games, sexy women, music and drinks :)
    This is your chance to help me finally realize why this day is truly a holiday to be celebrated with fun, friends and laughter.

    Cinco De Mayo is my birthday and I want to make it epic with an original and fun party, I wanna win!

  28. Mimi April 30, 2011 at 5:35 pm #

    Supposed to take my best friend out for his birthday, but got laid off in jan…it’d be magical to be able to “treat” him to this instead of just the super saver sushi $ 1 dinner….thanks…

    My mother would LOVE this!
    Actually, she is coming down from the coast for the explicit purpose of celebrating Cinco de Mayo on the waterfront. She would definitely enjoy a REAL party! I know she played Loteria in Mexico in her youth…was there burlesque in her past? I may soon find out…

  30. Lindsay May 4, 2011 at 11:17 pm #

    Please give my fiance and I tickets to this, it will be the third time we have been out since our son was born!

  31. Cooper May 5, 2011 at 3:19 pm #
