Hot In Hartford: The Beat City Beauties vs. Howard Baldwin
Old is new and new is old and we're all here together.
This match pits a group of young women practicing an old art against a gentleman working to build ice hockey in Hartford as he once did as a younger man. The Beat City Beauties have taken Hartford by storm in short time with their throwback burlesque show. A dance troupe of young, athletic women have made a big splash on the Hartford scene in short time with their throwback shows that evoke another era. With an expert mix of sex, athleticism, humor, and nostalgia, the Beat City Beauties have rapidly become a must see act on the Hartford circuit.
Howard Baldwin started making his mark in Hartford in the 1970's and is looking to make a bigger impact than ever today. A founding member and Commissioner of the WHA before he was 30, Mr. Baldwin was one of the original driving forces in bringing professional hockey to Hartford. After a spell out of the city, Mr. Baldwin returned last year taking over management of the Hartford Wolfpack, rebranding them the Hartford Whale, proposing a renovation of the XL Center, and advocating the return of the NHL to Hartford.
Old is new and new is old and we're all here together. But who is Hot In Hartford?
