Do you know what kind of place this is? If you don't know, it's a gay bar in Denton, Texas that actually burnt to the ground; not sure if they reopened it or not, but I did go there with a group of friends once; it's a funny little Lesbian bar.... How did you hear of it?

@mike waite: dammit. dammit-dammit-dammit. don't get us wrong, we love the lesbos (and even bartended at the clit club way back when, interesting experience). but we SO wanted mable peabody to be real.

What?? You mean this place no longer exists? Well just dang! Right when I needed my chainsaw repaired and my roots touched up. I can't have nothin'!

Whup-Ass Master

@leeuna: according to mike, were you to haul your defunct chainsaw and your black roots into mable's, you'd actually find yourself amongst flannel clad lesbians asking you to slow dance to the indigo girls. then where would you be?

Can someone let me in on the secret of the Laundromat/tanning salon duet? I had NO idea these existed until my last trip to Maine where the lady who changed my five for a half roll of quarters was as leathery and wrinkled as a Slim Jim. Obviously taking advantage of on-the-job perks. There was a whole chain of these places in small towns throughout Maine.

Wouldn't the pairing of a laundromat and bar or laundromat and 12 step meetings make more sense?

We have a secret just north of SoHo. It pretends to be a Camera Repair Shop, but really it's Pepes, our own little speakeasy.

Oh, and over here, spunk is spooge.

Hee hee. You said spunk.

@flaquita: the laundromat/tanning salon is retarded, although we suspect that typical sun bed session times out conveniently with a wash cycle. It gives one something to do, and there's nothing more depressing than sitting in a laundromat waiting for your clothes.

@ellie: We can always count on you hilarious brits for a laff. What exactly are folks in Pepe's speakin' easy about?

They're pretty much talking smack. Smoking indoors (after the smoking ban) and lucky to be drinking anything more than San Miguel ... just depends what has been smuggled into the basement. If the music is on, there's no talking and just dancing. If you're above a certain height, then you're head will be on a tilt. Low British basement ceilings.

Upon investigation after your heartfelt anguish over the demise of this lovely establishment, I discovered and this is GREAT NEWS.. Mable's is till sawing, curling and hoppin!!! if you go to https://www.geocities.com/mablepeabodys/ You can see Mable's going strong again..... A few years ago apparently a curling iron "Set it off" (pardon the Lesbo reference...and wasn't the Queen L just scary in that??) and the place burned to ground..Rumor has it that burning flannel, wood chips and Barbara Streisand albums fanned the flames for hours.....
