Flossie’s

“A wall of books opened, and I walked like a lamb into that bustling pleasure palace known as Flossie’s. Red flocked wallpaper and a Victorian decor set the tone. Pale, nervous girls with black-rimmed glasses and blunt-cut hair lolled around on sofas, riffling Penguin Classics provocatively. A blonde with a big smile winked at me, nodded toward a room upstairs, and said, ‘Wallace Stevens, eh?’ But it wasn’t just intellectual experiences. They were peddling emotional ones, too. For fifty bucks, I learned, you could ‘relate without getting close.'”

–Woody Allen

    flossie’s sounds like it would be a hidden room in the basement of sanford and son. a place where people pull their own shots of espresso from a machine in the corner.
