If you have no idea of who Chippendales are, then it’s time you get acquainted. Chippendales are a touring dance troupe widely and famously known for their male striptease performance and their costumes of just a bow tie, collar, and shirt cuffs on an otherwise bare torso. This is actually the perfect weekday slump pick-me-up we all deserve. Chippendales have been making jaws drop since 1979, and you can grab tickets to see them perform at the House of Blues Houston on February 12.
