This Labor Day I ventured into the Galapagos Art Space. The first Monday of every month, Murray Hill hosts night of amateur burlesque. Any daring heart or playful exhibitionist can sign up to win fun prizes and cash. If the stage isn’t your thing, you are strongly encouraged to dress in your latest vintage finds, pearls, and seamed stockings.
