It's Spiegeltent!

Although I've never wished to live in New York City (Boston is more my type), looking at pictures of Spiegeltent tempts me to pay the Big Apple a visit this summer. So what is Spiegeltent you might ask? It's a traveling venue originally hailing from Belgium at the turn of the century (20th that is, not 21st!) that's made of teek, beveled glass, mirrors, and velvet all contained guessed it - a tent! Talk about a first date that will guarantee to impress...check out the pictures below and then start planning on who you want to take:


In addition to simply looking magical, swanky, and inviting, Spiegeltent will be housing performances by a multitude of bands, actors, and eye-popping contemporary burlesque acts in its summer home under the Brooklyn Bridge at the Fulton Fish Market. Some of them include:
