Most houses in the SLC don't have driveways. Instead there are these back alleys that people use to get to their parking. Walking around the neighborhood by way of these is a favorite past time. The front yard of most homes is what the home owners want the world to see, but the back yards are a better picture of what their like. Also, it feels like you are being rebellious, peeking in on people's private lives. The other great thing about the alley system is that the look of the neighborhood is very clean. Just house after house.

I've seen this bit of graffiti around town. I wonder if it is some kind of underground symbol for some secret society. The Bone Hand society. Probably not but it would be cool if it was.
Recently there has been news media attention to the "graffiti problem" in the Salt Lake valley. But it was never news worthy until it showed up in a "nicer" part of town. Now there is even a graffiti info line where you can leave tips. Whatever. Yes there is tagging in Salt Lake but really it is very little for a city this size. Also, it is bullshit that until some of the more affluent neighborhoods get tagged it is not considered a problem.

Ha ha ha ha ha. Love it. Strippers need our help. Those 6 inch bitch heels with the 3 inch see through platforms, don't buy themselves. I've only been to strip joints in Salt Lake so I don't know how they compare to other places. I'd think that most are about the same.
I do believe that strippers, or sorry exotic dancers, do need help in a couple of areas. First, if you are going to say that you are an exotic dancer then dance! For god sake, find the beat and follow it. Some of the women I've seen have no idea how to dance. These ladies are strippers, not dancers at all. Second, if you are going to have acrylic toe nails (which I think is gross to begin with) please have them painted. No one wants to see your toes glowing green under the black lights. Disgusting.

And the music that they play is great bluesy, jazzy, loungy kind of music. It's the kind of place that makes for a great end to hard work week.
I've seen the place used for bridal and baby showers. I know that if you call in advance they will prepare a whole tea service. With those great tiny sandwiches and pastries. I do wish that they stayed open just a bit longer, they close at 7pm. But even a couple of hours there makes for a great escape.
