Brandon and I are heading to the Can Can Culinary Cabaret in Pike Place Market in Seattle this week to check out their new show “Bananas!” and explore their menu!
This sounds delightful, don’t you agree?

Seattle’s only underground and Parisian-inspired Bohemia woos summer in the Northwest with its captivating, tropically infused evening of burlesque, comedy, song, dance, food, and then some. “One of our most popular shows was called Flamingo – we produced it in 2015,” Chris Pink, Can Can artistic director comments. “Ever since then, we’ve had endless requests to bring it back, so we decided to combine last summer’s hit Ice Cream with Flamingo to create something new because, let’s face it, we could all use an early dose of summer! We think Bananas! has all the right kinds of tiki, beachy goodness – and quite a few bananas.”
Audiences can look forward to a uniquely sourced soundtrack packed with a variety of remixed, remastered, and enhanced vintage tracks brought back to life from the electro swing of Dime Cat, the 1960s sounds of Caterina Valente, to Elvis Presley, Louis Prima, and so much more. The seasonal dinner menu features a variety of new additions including a market fresh Halibut with Lime Coconut Sauce and Pistachio Crusted Lamb with Sweet Potato and Asparagus, and the cocktail menu has also been refreshed as well. Try a Bees Knees gin cocktail or one of the absinthe favorites, Death In The Afternoon. For complete menu details, please visit TheCanCan.com
