An Industry Benefit For Three Aces Bartender Who Was Shot in Ukrainian Village in September
Raquel LeDuc of Three Aces.
Remember that terrible story in mid-September about two people getting shot minutes apart in Ukrainian Village?!
Well, one of the victims was Raquel LeDuc, a local burlesque performer and bartender at Three Aces in Little Italy. She was walking from her car to her home when she was attacked and shot in the abdomen.
I don't know the identity or condition of the guy, but LeDuc is apparently recovering nicely, however, her hospital bills were pretty high.
That's why Three Aces has decided to throw a bash in her honor to help. From what I can tell, the turnout will be pretty outstanding with many prominent folks in the industry pitching in to relieve her of some of those bills.
There will be performances by Black Actress, local burlesque stars and guest deejays. And there will apparently be a Death's Door Punch Off (I need to see this to absorb what this means!) with high-profile bartenders Matty Eggleston, Erin Hayes (J. Parker), Luke LeFiles and Austin Skiles.
The event takes place 9pm-2am Sunday and donations are welcome.
