Burlesque Live! at Hotel San Marcos: The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly

Countless cigar girls and ladies in spinning hoops took over the Hotel San Carlos in Phoenix this weekend and put on a show that satisfied any kind of appetite for fishnet stockings, feather boas and bad lipstick.

We checked out the scene at Burlesque Live!, took a few notes and are back to you with the essentials -- the Good's above, the Bad and Ugly are after the jump, and the whole steamy slideshow is right here.
