The most famous strip club in the south would be Atlanta's "The Cheetah Lounge". It isn't across the street from the Varsity. It's up the street and around the corner. The Varsity is on North Ave and The Cheetah is on Spring St. And, dancers (Candy/Miranda or whatever her name is) don't leave the club to go across the street or anywhere else while they are working. As for the "bump", probably wouldn't have to leave the club for that anyway.
Of course it's fiction, Jack. And, I enjoy your writing immensely. Especially your Opinion pieces, and your fiction and your new car reviews, too.
Surely you must have encountered a film or a story, ostensibly taking place somewhere you are familiar with, and noticed the inaccuracies.
Did you happen to see the Netflix series "Ozark", for example? A lot of it was filmed in Georgia. How do I know? Well, I assure you the skyline of Chicago doesn't include the Peachtree Plaza Hotel and the IBM Tower.
And, all those shots of the lakes in the Ozarks with all that Georgia red clay at the waterline...sure looks a lot like Lake Lanier to me. It was.
Well, here's the embarrassing admission: I have gone from the Cheetah to the Varsity and vice versa several times, so I *should* know the geography of it. But instead I relied on my memory of the Cheetah being "just across the street". You're obviously right.
Now, as to dancers leaving the Cheetah in the middle of their shift to misbehave with customers... that I *will* vouch for, sadly.
My ABQ-born wife loves calling out all the times that Albuquerque is a stunt double for other cities on TV.
