R.I.P. The Lusty Lady
Downtown's most recognizable marquee is going dark. Thanks to a crappy economy and the large amount of free porn floating around on the Internet, The Lusty Lady will be closing sometime in the next two months.

So in honor of the imminent shuttering of First Avenue's most iconic storefront, here's a by-no-means-comprehensive collection of some of the best puns, alliterative phrases and double-entendres ever to grace the bright lights of Seattle's most beloved peep show.

An hour after the Ash Wednesday quake...

We're Still Shaking -- Come Feel the Earth Move

During the W.T.O. riots...

W. T. Oohhhhhhhh! -- The Nude World Order

On Oscar Sunday...

We'd Like To Spank The Academy

On St. Patrick's Day...

No Body's Wearing Green and Erin Go Braugh-less

Christmas...

We're here for yule and Dancers, Prancers and Vixens

And Thanksgiving...

Happy Spanksgiving!

When SAM first moved in across the street...

Welcome SAM! Once you've seen their nudes, come in and see ours.

When Hammering Man was first installed...

Hammer Away Big Guy.

When SAM reopened after an expansion...

We Made Sam Grow

And when Chuck Close came to town...

Chuck Clothes

And finally, in 2006, after the Lusty refused to sell to ex-Mayor Paul Schell and the other investors trying to tear it down and build a Four Seasons...

We're Open, Not Clothed.

Just not for long.*

*All marquee titles come from memory, History Link, Rick Anderson's story on the failed Four Seasons sale and Robert Jamieson's 2001 column in the P-I.
