The hubby and I went to see “CHEFS – A Sizzling Kitchen Showdown” last night with 2 of my co-workers. We weren’t originally planning to go, but they kind of coerced me into getting tickets and going with them. We had very low expectations, but figured it would be a night out and silly fun. Turns out it was as we expected: a thinly veiled amateur strip show with no real cooking or food prep. All of it was staged, high school humor aimed at middle-aged housewives who get out of the house once in a blue moon, with their gal pals, for a night of overpriced drinks and mild titillation. Still, it was 5 toned men gyrating in bikinis 20 feet from our seats, so we enjoyed it none the less. The audience was 95% women (no surprise), including a contingent from The Red Hat Society, but there were also 4 other men in the audience that we assumed were gay, bi or heteroflexible, and another 4 men that appeared to be there as accommodating companions for their female partners. There was a lot of audience participation and, although it was a show clearly meant to appeal to women attracted to men, it was a pleasant surprise that the cast was inclusive and brought a gay man to the stage to participate in one of the “sexually charged” contests, during which he was flirted with, teased and danced with, by one of the strippers/chefs, just like the women were.
While it was not a show I would have to see again, we enjoyed it more than we thought we would, laughed a lot and had a good time. I’m glad we went.

Sounds a bit better than just ‘something to pass the evening’.
if that was your crew from last night, I’ll take the dude on the far left.
“5 toned men gyrating in bikinis 20 feet from our seats” – HELL YEAH! 🙂
I tried to join a local red hat society once; they would not accept me. bitches!
Yup – same crew
Oh my, I thought this was a movie and not a live show. You had a good time, which was better than passing the time. I spent my Saturday evening playing video games and I streamed Justice League: The New Frontier on my Fire TV. I bought it about a year ago and realized it’s been awhile since I’ve seen it.
Who knew you’re little hamlet was so progressive!
