Prague Burlesque

“I find strippers to be generally very nice people,” says an ultradecent gentleman in a wiseman voice as he sits down next to me, simultaneously trying to persuade me he most definitely isn’t a stalker and pushing his chair way too close to mine.

I imagine this is where Sinatra‘s ‘Strangers in the Night‘ would have met – a place of seamless perfection that…
