So Jason (or Jeisean as he sometimes known in the low-life cafes he frequents) from Night is Half Gone wins this season’s Reindeer Game prize for having run across the first stripper-in-a-santy-hat, or at least the first one to admit it.
In looking for something to illustrate this time honored tradition, I ran across this
tarting up the place in a queer bar called New York, New York in Manchester, England. It scares me. I thought at first it was the color or the shininess, but now I realize it’s the tout ensemble that willifies me. I look at the vaguely Victorian mantle mirror, the various equipment dangling about (are they games? Security apparatus? Who knows?) and the lovely peach colored walls and think “I’m glad I don’t go to bars anymore.”
