Strange Sisters, Buddies in Bad Times' annual lesbian cabaret, is turning 13 and entering adolescence, and the hormones are churning. The theme of this year's cabaret lineup is food. On the menu are tasty performances by new and established artists like Lex Vaughan, Allison Mitchell, Queen Size Shag, the GTOs and Women with Kitchen Appliances. Hosting are Evalyn Parry (The Former Republic Of Poetry) and Ali Eisner (Lilith Fair). Bring your appetite, and don't worry about the plates. You can dish all you like afterwards.
