In their tight red jumpsuits, fishnet hose, and black high heels, the Red Light Burlesque Girls stop traffic ... literally. If you've attended one of SoCo's First Thursdays, then you've probably seen or met these sexy ladies. Usually positioned between Jo's Hot Coffee and Amy's Ice Creams across the street, they guide pedestrians safely across South Congress. The ladies have been diligently soliciting for a petition to get a crosswalk on the aforementioned portion of the street. We wish them luck, but hope if they succeed, they will still be available to walk us across the street. Although, if their campaign succeeds, they'll have more time to strut their "Original Southern style strippin'!" at their host venue, the Continental Club.
