When: Open run: last Sun of the month, 7:30 PM

The theme of this monthly event changes from show to show. At one edition, Attack of the 50 Ft. Stripper, host (and occasional ukulele player) Aly Oops guided the audience with adorkable hyperdrive through a series of sci-fi-themed strip teases, in which characters from Star Trek, Captain Apollo, and Star Wars skillfully denuded themselves but didn't manage to uncover any mysteries of the universe in the process. The production had some stellar moments: there's very little in this world or any other that can beat Leeloo from The Fifth Element slowly removing a multipass from the crotch of her glittery gold pants. And while a shimmying cardboard-box robot may invite scrutiny from whatever higher life form one day discovers our sex- and spaceship-obsessed culture, it definitely improved my Sunday night. —Hannah Gold
