|The can-can at RSVP!|
One thing we absolutely didn't expect? The performances. As we sat there, an announcer came on the speakers: "Ladies and gentlemen, welcome to RSVP." Just as we were having flashbacks to our last stint at New Jersey wedding, three burlesque dancers trotted out on a previously unnoticed stage. Good - if there was going to be entertainment, at least it was of the pseudo-scandalous variety. For their first act, the ladies did a can-can style dance. For the second, it was a Chicago-(the musical)style chair dance, and while they didn't go all-out Madonna, they did offer a peek of the bra). Apparently there will be four performances a night - think The Box-lite, with more food but just as much feigned disinterest from the crowd. If you want to RSVP to this joint, it's currently open and located at 15 Watts Street. You might want to leave those sneakers at home.
