Friday is for gettin yer FREAK ON!
I forget where I got this but I just LOVE things like this. My fellow French speakers will of course get it right away. You non French speakers might need a hint at first: The 'establishment' is located at 69 Black Cat Street (Paris). Prices are in francs and, as this is quite old, things were quite a bit cheaper back then. Now that Les Femmes de la Nuit are unionized it's pretty much 300 francs no matter what you want although you can always get "Le Pipe" from the local crack whore for 50 francs anywhere on Rue St. Denis. Or...um...so I hear. Not that I would know. Yea.
That's so cool.
I know enough French that I blushed! (Well, okay, I didn't blush, but well, whatever!) What a great idea-a menu for a cat house!!! Everything is just laid out there (quite literally) so you know what's basically available and how far it'll set you back. There is a huge one (currently open for business in New Orleans) called Temptations. The front of the building is covered with painted on apples, which I thought was clever. And, if y'all go to New Orleans I didn't tell you about this place...
Actually, it's against my principles to patronize prostitutes. Not that I have a problem with them; I just won't pay for something I can get for free. Besides I also don't want those extra gifts that keep on giving! Woot!
What an awesome piece of history! I love it!!
