Today In WTF: A Red-Light District Goes Green

October 19, 2009

In the current global economy, things are hard all over -- even in Berlin's red-light district. With fewer travelers coming to town for conferences and business meetings, sales at local bordellos have gone limp, but the owners of Maison d'Envie in trendy Prenzlauer Berg are hoping to give things a lift by offering a 5 € ($7.50) discount to any customer who arrives on a bike. Not only is that good for the environment, but all that cardio exercise guarantees healthy return customers. Sounds like a big score in our book. Somebody give those folks a hand. [NYTimes]
