Shu said:> of course I heard stories about the Wild Horse, too, being Miles City's version of the "Bunny Ranch".
I went to the Wild Horse only once (just had to see it in person). This was back in the 80's. I was probably about 17, and brought along my cousin who was about 15. From what I've seen of "Cathouse" on HBO, it was no "Bunny Ranch".
Now, I'm not sure how to say this nicely, but two things became immediately apparent ...
1. The crowd was the ugliest I had ever seen. It is not a good sign, when everyone turns as you walk in with a look like, "What in the hell are you doing here?"
2. The woman dancing (if you want to call it that) was quite overweight, didn't exactly look healthy, and was completely 100% nude. It was not a pretty sight.
She also didn't seem to have a problem walking around the bar and generally hanging out in her emperor's new clothes. There may have been some sanitation issues in regards to the bar stools.
The drinking age was 18 at the time, however, neither of us had any problem ordering and receiving a beer. The scene was so creepy though, we downed our drinks as quickly as we could, and immediately split ... a bit concerned about potentially getting stabbed at any moment.
Ahhh, the good old days.
