Peek-a-Boo

http://sf.metblogs.com/archives/images/2007/02/LingerieNEON-thumb.jpg
Rainy nights and neon lights just seem to go together, and my meandering path home is magnetically drawn to them. This saucy little number peeks out from a ‘live model’ lingerie shop in the overlap of union/nobhill/t’loin ‘hoods, and it is surprisingly elegant, considering it’s task.

My favorite aspect, though, is that she peeks out towards a swankish ‘private club’-type venue across the street, where livery cabs – the all-black elongated kind – are often dropping off the polished elite of the city for fundraisers and secret-handshake events.

Care to guess where she is?

    My girlfriend used to leave at that nearby intersection, so I’ve walked past many times. That establishment always struck me as being oddly located. I understand that it’s been around a good long while, so the location must not be a problem for them.

    I imagine that she’s making eyes at the Owl across the way, too.

    ahhhh, you guys are on the mark, but are you leaving the actual location out for others to guess?
    I’ll give a hint – it’s closely located near the landmark of the photo in the post right above it…

    Even the BoHos have to have a little fun now and again.

    Sutter and Taylor, I believe.

    DING DING! We have a winner!
    She’s on Taylor, between Sutter and Post. During the day, you’d never spot her, the shadows and the iron bars on the windows camoflauge her well, but by night, she casts her radiant glow far.

    thanks for playing!

    Oh I remember this particular building. Last summer there was a siloutte of a different woman, sans radiant glow, who was just barely visible wihtin the dark shadows. I took her picture but the cell phone didn’t capture the image. Do you see that one?

    Nope. I alter my route quite a bit, and hadn’t been around this particular area for a while, so it sounds like I missed it.
