Ray Alvarez, a.k.a. Asghar Ghahraman, celebrated his 80th birthday recently with a little help from his friends, who hired a bevy of burlesque dancers to titillate on the countertop of his hole-in-the-wall hot dog and Belgian fries shop, at Avenue A and Seventh St. Above, Little Motown danced to “Candy Girl” as Ray enjoyed the show. Below, during one of the dancer’s sultry numbers, Ray found himself draped with her red boa. Other dancers included Bunny, Jo Boobs Weldon and Gal Friday. Slum Goddess, who was videoing all the action for her blog, can be overheard on the tape saying, “You won’t find this at 7-Eleven!” The party was put on by Matt Rosen, Ilya Shinkar, Lindsay W. and Shawn Chittle, who mixed sound.
