In these anti-nudity times, every strip club fighting the good fight deserves your love. But the Shady Lady stands out, and not just for its superior dancers. The bar is fun even without the ladies. In business for more than seven decades — whether as a country-western bar or a strip club laboring under the inane laws of sex-obsessed politicians — the Shady Lady has endured as a quintessential family business. The modest stage — a people's stage — stands only a foot above the floor. Lap dances take place on a nearby leather couch, and just because the women giving them are wearing bikinis doesn't mean you can't still enjoy the view.
