Hot Rods and Burlesque in Lakewood

This Saturday. First, watch Rebel Without a Cause. Second, get to Lakewood Theater, where outside there’ll be a vintage hot rod show. Oh, and inside: a ’50s-inspired fashion show including a burlesque performance with over 20 performers. Because 20 just isn’t enough.
