In this world of fake breasts and personalities, you have to guess a lot. I believe Tootsies Cabaret (shown bottom right) has almost real women dancing on stage, but it is just my guess. Do gay guys walk into the wrong cabaret and get served the wrong buns for their salami? If someone says “Let’s go to the cabaret,” what does it mean?

The origin of the word, “Cabaret,” plays a role in my novel. I need to add some cabaret references from the modern world to those from the age of myth. The Cabeiri seem to have done some severe gender bending.
