Spies in Thrift Shop Suits
Steve Torton, Jean-Michels painting assistant, was driving an old car Jean-Michel had bought spontaneously a week before. I think it was a 1950-ish Plymouth. Steve, Jean-Michel, and I were scoping out a bar near St. Marks Place called The Lucky Seven. We sat in the old clunker laughing loudly, pretending we were spies in our old tattered thrift shop suits. We watched the door of the bar swing open from time to time and could see Madonna causing an uproar inside and entertaining the patrons at the bar.
The three of us had a good laugh at the sight of her backside every time the door of the bar would swing open. At the time, Madonna wore very revealing skirts and, with the motion of the bar door, onlookers would be privy to even more. Jean-Michel was in a relationship with Madonna during this time, so, following our stakeout, we went inside to join Madonna and friends for drinks.
