Dangerous Amusements

On 15 Jan. 2011, The Chicago Poetry Brothel Will Present: Dangerous Amusements

At The Chicago House of Blues—The Brilliant Entrance to the Underworld Itself—Doors open at 8 pm.

Young girls who have danced a little are attracted by the blazing light, gaiety and apparent happiness of the parlor & the games within, which, in many instances, leads to their downfall.
