#93 was the store #, not the date line. Guess you're safe, as I was at the Canal Villere on Vets near Green Acres (1985-1987), which eventually became a Rouses which apparently got sold off to some other entity.

do what now?
The club had a small bookstore/lingerie/toy shop attached with a few video booths. I did the stocking, cashiering, etc. I also had to periodically have a remote 'looksee' to make sure the guys in the booths still had vids playing and weren't just taking up space.
Humans are some perverted monkeys, yo.
