For those of you who may not know, my place of employment is near downtown Nashville. In fact, we're only a couple of blocks up from the Rescue Mission, if that gives any of you Nashvillians a vague idea of just where it is I work.
We're located in an area that must not be zoned as school or church or whatever else keeps them away, because we've got a plethora of adult books stores and strip clubs in the area. (I guess after having a nice meal at the shelter, the homeless guys have to do something for entertainment). I pass several of these daily going to and from work.
One of them is relatively new--Stephanie's Cabaret. It's got a sign outside that gives you the hours you can come in and watch the show as well as the URL to their web site. (I guess so you can plan which stripper you want to see or figure out how much the watered down drinks will set you back).
Anyway, driving past Stephanie's Cabaret on the way to the Downtown Y the other day, I noticed their marquee had changed. Seems there is to be a "totally topless car wash" tomorrow (Friday) afternoon from 4-7 p.m.
And my first thought is--how exactly is that going to work? I mean, I don't know the local decency laws inside and out, but can they legally have a totally topless carwash in the middle of the afternoon? And will this create some kind of driving hazard, becuase let's face it--if you're driving down the road and see topless women washing cars, odds are you're gonna do a double-take. This is just not something you see every day--that is unless you're Hugh Hefner and live in the Mansion.
Who knows? It may be all some publicity ploy or a way to get your attention for their new club. (I had no idea strip clubs were so competitive) And I guess on some level, it's succeeded because I'm certainly aware of what's going to be going on tomorrow as I drive to the Y.
