Over the Weekend: Photos from the St. Louis Burlesque Showcase, the Grand Opening of Lola and an MMA Fashion Show

by

It was a diverse weekend for coverage here for RFT photographers this past weekend. We sent them to a burlesque dancing showcase that got all the St. Louis-based performers of the saucy arts in a single room together, then to a grand opening of a new restaurant downtown and finally to a fashion show dedicated to mixed-martial arts.

Without further ado, here's a recap of our weekend coverage:
