Here's what's going on in town this weekend

Good day and happy Labor Day weekend.

Tease A Gogo, Lansing’s resident burlesque variety show, promises to “ruin your childhood” with a fairytale-themed evening of drag, striptease and sideshow performances. The lineup includes host Naughty Autie, as well as Vivacious Miss Audacious, Jax Nippleson, Cinna Moan, Florence of Alabia and more. Reserved seating is available, and guests can take advantage of a free photo booth provided by Kendall D. Lartigue Photography. Attendees must be 18 or older. 9 p.m. $10. The Avenue Café, 2021 E. Michigan Ave., Lansing. (517) 492-7403, teaseagogo.com.

The city can get pretty quiet on Labor Day weekend as vacationers head out of town, but one group is giving staycationers the opportunity to party locally. The Pentecostals of East Lansing hosts a block party for the community Monday, featuring food, music and a car show. While visitors stroll amid classic cars, they can take in live music from local talent or browse the goodies at the bake sale and silent auction. Activities for kids include inflatables, face painting and a chance to check out police and fire vehicles. Vehicle registration at 10 a.m. for car show participants; $10 registration fee required. 11 a.m.-4 p.m. FREE. The Pentecostals of East Lansing, 16262 Chandler Road, East Lansing. (517) 337-7635, entecostalel.org/laborday.
