Plaque for the Condor.

Topless and Bottomless Club Birthplace

First topless and bottomless entertainment. Plaque is on the outside of the building.

[Kellie Parker, 01/24/2010]

The Condor dance club was the site of the first topless dancer entertainment (June 19, 1964) and five years later bottomless followed (Sept. 3, 1969). Not sure how this claim was ever verified, but it's an amusing milestone for an official plaque.
