I know what you're thinking. We're in San Diego and we're going to a puppet show?
We like cabaret and also enjoy the Muppets - so this show sounded like a good time waiting to happen.
So how was it you ask? Incredibly fun and NOT AT ALL what we were expecting. The puppets were a bit creepy, and the themes of the skits ranged from inspiring to sexy and sadistic.
The odd but super fun night through
a crap load of pictures:
|We arrived & were shocked to see the line wrapped around the building. I guess we're not the only ones intriqued by this event. Or..... is this a common event for larger cities and we've simply been out of the loop?|
|Through the window I started to see some interesting outfits. This was an artistic crowd, and the people watching was great! Suck I have on sandals and a giant sweater (we were freezing in San Diego).|
|Gingham prairie dress with a fur tail. Odd, come to find out she is one of the artists with 'Animal Cracker Conspiracy' and the tail is similar to an employee name tag.|
|Leopard clothing bomb. The rule of one leopard item did not apply here. Shoes, hat, purse, top, skirt, jewelry...|
|Plenty of hats, solid black clothing and dreadlocks. I think I smell pot......|
|The camera guy who was actually filming as he walked and showed you the footage on the laptop as he was swinging around.|
|Creepy scary puppets. One of many sets.|
|We sat on the floor like children and watched as different artists entertained us with their props & stories.|
Alcohol in the form of locally brewed beers and wine was a big part of the evening and breaks were given every 30 minutes for those who needed a refill. Everyone was really
stoned, friendly and I realized that art venues are a PERFECT EXCUSE to wear unique and fun outfits.
Art exhibits have traditionally not been very exciting to me, but now I have a new appreciation for the gatherings. We had so much fun at the adult puppet cabaret and will be scouting out new and interesting events at home.
