One of my local metro parks is holding an interesting event this Sunday and I'm thinking of attending. It's a presentation on the vices of the 1880's. The public is invited to help strip cured tobacco from the stalk, watch plugs be made, and learn more about coffee, tea, beer, and gambling. Check it out...

Beats going to the Air Force Museum for the 100th 1000th time.

Too bad no clinics on opium smoking. That would be an interesting 19th century vice.
Although kind of scary as well.

That does sound very cool. I'd love to watch tobacco processing live.

Do they have a bordello complete with tinny piano and bead curtains? With a circular couch around a support column to display the wares, as in paintings of the era? They had a mercury cure for the consequences back then. Do they serve absinthe? If they do, then we're talking...

maybe thats a business venture that should be explored, 1880's gin joint/opium den/burlesque/bordello? I am sure you would have a line around the block.

If you want to go halfsies on it... I'm in. We could start our first place in St. Albans. Wink
Let's go Mountaineers!

Pretty crazy... I live right off Woodman. We may want to open two spots, one in each location. We would want to move it down to the Huffman area to generate a higher frequency of trick turning.

Cheers!

I lived in the (ultra crappy) woodman lawn appts for a little while when I was staying in dayton. Long story short, never move somewhere for a girl you have known for only a few months...

Yeah, 2 locations would make sense, 1 in jefferson WV, 1 in dayton OH. Could sell franchise licenses!

That's one of the nicer places to stay here in Dayton. Laughing
I'm surprised it didn't make you fall in love with our great city?
