Bainbridge + Prostitution = Vegas?

Sorry if that header got your hopes up.

Celine Dion and Cirque du Soleil haven’t booked any shows at BPA as of yet. The Luxor has no plans to build a second pyramid on Winslow Way. And you’ll still have to cross the bridge if you want any action at the slots.

The Seattle Times has determined that the recent prostitution arrests are no cause for concern that Bainbridge’s “upper-crust community will start looking like Las Vegas any time soon.”

Huh. I was actually worried it would start looking like Seattle’s Aurora Avenue.

But that little “any time soon” bit has me thinking. How soon is “soon?” Will it take a year, two years, a whole decade before the prostitutes bring palm trees, sunshine and Elvis impersonators* to Bainbridge?

*Oh yeah, that one already happened.
