Crazy driving and people acting like freaks. It’s not just because there’s snow on the ground. It’s Friday, people! Two amazing variety shows, kick-ass music at Bellissima and a long lineup of nightlife options.
• LAST MINUTE CANCELLATION DUE TO WEATHER: The cast of “Sordid Lives,” the Princess of Country Music Georgette Jones and playwright Del Shores have a brand new bag, but the first of three “A Sordid Affair” performances is cancelled due to the weather. Ticket holders are invited to an intimate gathering with the cast at the W Hotel Midtown at 7:30 p.m. The shows for Saturday and Sunday are still set to run @ 14th Street Playhouse, as well as a cast party at Outwrite on Saturday afternoon.

• Oh, those alterna-showgirl lesbians and their bewitching burlesque. Dames Aflame is part of The King’s birthday celebration, the Vegas-style Kingsize Elvis Show @ Variety Playhouse, 8 p.m.
• Even with snow remnants and chilling winds, they don’t actually hibernate. Cuddle up with one during Coffee and Dinner with Southern Bears @ Starbucks & F.R.O.G.S.
• Dynamic duo. Sarah Peacock & Jessi Lynn (photo, l-r) @ Bellissima will rock your socks off and heal what ails you. We guarantee it.
