Free your inner artist
A strip club in Boise, Idaho, has begun holding “art nights” two days a week to skirt a city ordinance that prohibits complete nudity except as a part of artistic displays, such as ballet and dramatic performances. Club patrons receive pencils and sketch pads and are encouraged to draw the “models” as they perform in the buff. “As far as the Boise city code, it specifies it has to be a serious artistic manner, and this is a serious artistic manner,” the club owner told the Associated Press. Whether anyone actually draws anything during art night is, of course, completely irrelevant.
You clear it, it might not be yours
Boston residents have been accustomed to laying claim to their curbside parking spaces with chairs, barrels, you name it, once they clear the snow from around their vehicles. However, Mayor Tom Menino tried to put a stop to that practice in January by reinstating the city’s ban on saving parking spots and giving residents 96 hours after a snow emergency is lifted to clear their space savers before city crews do it for them. “It is a system that worked. We all respect each other’s barrels,” a resident told local NewsCenter 5. “I think [the mayor] should have left it as it was.”
