Dundalk bikini club catches fire

bustosBustos, a bikini club on the 4000 block of North Point Blvd., caught fire early this morning, according to this piece by Sun reporter Gus G. Sentementes.

My take: OH NO! NOT BUSTOS! 

Can you imagine a world without Bustos? Hee hee. I've never been to or even heard of this place. But I've got a question for you: What's a bikini club? ...

Sentementes' article says it features "women dancing in bikinis." Is that all they do?

Or do they take the bikinis off after they've danced in them for a while? Girls dancing in bikinis doesn't sound too hot to me. But it must have been hot, because, well, the place caught fire. Zink!

Sorry, sorry, I know it's probably too soon for fire jokes. But I just couldn't resist.

Also, this piece says the club is owned by a company based in a town called Street. There's a town in Maryland called Street? How confusing is that? I mean, who names a town Street? I looked it up on Google Maps, and discovered that not only does there appear to be a town called Street, there is a road called Street Road in Street.

Still with me?

"Hi, I live at 12 Street Road in Street."


I hope, for the sake of common sense, that I'm wrong, and this place doesn't really exist. But if it does, I wouldn't be surprised.

Yep, there's a Street, MD. It's north of Bel Air, almost to Pennsylvania.

It's not even the funniest town name in Maryland. Boring, MD would certainly beat it.

A bikini club is usually a strip club without an adult license.

you actually get paid for this?

Not enough, bill. Not enough.

sam, the earlier comment did not come from the usual bill. someone stole my extremely original name. juniors still sucks too.

hee hee ... welcome back, original bill! thanks for clearing this up.

My parents live about 15 minutes from Street but it seems like a world away. I'm not even sure they have a post office...or indoor plumbing for that matter.

Jenn -- Wait, are you saying that, in Street, all of the waste just gets tossed out into ... drumroll please ... the street?

G Maps:

S Main St/US-219

My mother lives in Street which is right next to Jarrettsville. She's a few miles away from North Harford High School. And oddly enough I used to live in Boring, MD which is close to Reisterstown. I can say this, Boring lived up to it's name. I've lived an exciting life, I know! My autobiography should be out in a few months.

This was by far, the funniest Sam.


Gawd, Bmore is filled with hundreds of these places and you'll never know about them. Sidebar - I found Phoenix and California, Maryland to be confusing.

"Hi, I'm from California (wait for it) . . . maryland."

There is a Hollywood, Md., too in southern Md.

don't forget texas maryland either. I used to go to grade school there.

In Balto. county you are required to have an adult entertainment license to have femall=e dancers but they are not allowed to dance topless or nude as they can in Balto City, however some county clubs brake this law all the time, i. e.Mill Stream, they must pay off the right liqour inspectors in Balto. County.

There are a lot of people I work with who look at me funny when I say I live in Pasadena (MD).

I admit to being confused when a friend said she was going to North East, MD. Is that up near Street?

North East, MD. Is that up near Street?

It's even farther than Street. It's practically Delaware.

Cavetown, Md. 'nough said.
