Peek-a-Boo… I see you. Now go away.

I’ve often wondered exactly what goes on inside Peek-A-Boo on Bessemer Avenue.  The establishment is located right next door to one of my favorite haunts – the most excellent and helpful McKnight Hardware.

Thanks to The Troublemaker, now I know.

A sixty-minute, two girl nude domination session is $250.” explains the lady on the other end of Ben’s inquiring phone call.  But of course, that’s not including tip.

The City of Greensboro is trying, once again, to close Peek-A-Boo down.  They have a long and sordid history of hoo-doing city inspectors while keeping their doors open, which Ben documents in great detail.

I hope the city is successful ridding my side of Greensboro of that illegal (as the phone call illustrates) establishment.  I’d prefer that people come to that stretch of Bessemer Avenue to have their nut and screw needs fullfilled at the Greensboro’s finest hardware store.

    In my case, predictabilty = boredom.

    Connie Mack Jr., Dr. Mary Johnson, “Truth”, “Skeet Club Savage” and – most times – Bubba come to mind as ‘skip overs’.* David on Ed’s and most likely a candiate for peek a look Singles club.

    Do you really think that you are that important in the big skip of life?

    I may be wrong….but I am not sure if Connie made any sense at all…a lil help?

    “I may be wrong….but I am not sure if Connie made any sense at all…a lil help?”

    It’s just a comment on Hoggard’s moralizing, I’m sure.

    I think the skip-over list is comprised of writers who David finds painful to read because we upset the pre-ordained way things ought to be in his mind.

    You got the only the ‘painful’ part correct, Bubba. My ‘skip-over’ list constists of commenters who are painfully predictable in style, tone and content. They are pre-ordained bores as well and you might be pleased to know you are well on your way to attaining full ‘skip-over’ status by this reader.

    (To the contextually confused… both Connie and Bubba have decided to chase over to here a thread that started at Ed Cone’s place under the heading of “Standards”.)

    David, are we witnessing a new type of blog spam with these completely off-topic comments or have Bubba and Connie simply smoked something they’d rather not admit to smoking?

    Hey, Ben, a brief video might go a long way to helping your cause.

    I used to work @ peekaboo for a while… i made a lot of money thanks to the perverse male population of greensboro and surrounding areas… while i do agree, working in an environment such as peekaboo is rather degrading and i most certainly wouldn’t encourage anybody to work there.. but there are times in everybody’s life when desperate times call for desperate measures. Atleast we weren’t filing for welfare or using government money to take care of our children or our healthcare or anything for that matter… the greensboro police department is as crooked as the male population in general. An officer came in as a civilian… not undercover… got a “show” as we called it… and was on tape hollering about how displeased he was with our services. He came in seeking illegal activity and received nothing of the sort. He was caught on our security cameras cursing about how he “should’ve wiped his ass with that hundred”… because he “didn’t get *expletive, *expletive, or *expletive”… now I don’t know this to be true… BUT… it just makes sense to me that the greensboro officer realized he was caught on tape after he let his mouth get ahead of his brain then stirred up all this trouble just so that he could shut them down so he wouldn’t get caught.
    After charges were filed, the greensboro police repeatedly returned back to peekaboo simply to harrass and badger the employees and customers. They made several uncalled for comments, and took a very rude tone. They slammed several people against the wall that were simply just curious as to what type of business peekaboo is… the greensboro police department is whacked…
    And further, Xanadus down the road lets more than one person in a “mini movie booth” at the same time… so why are they still open??? If that’s what peekaboo is charged with, Xanadus should be charged equally… The greensboro police department need to get their ducks in a row before they start running off at the mouth…
