LulaBelle's

I got up this morning and looked at my Mark Twain post. Then it hit me!! I forgot LulaBelle's!!! How could I forget LulaBelle's? Here she is:

LulaBelle's is a fine dining establishment. Stands right next to Pudd-n-Heads, you can't miss it. Mom took me to LulaBelle's once after grandma told us about it. It was my birthday several years ago and thought, "why not give it a try?" LulaBelle's was (not now, you'll understand) in the "red light" district of Hannibal. Or I should probably say, WAS the red light district of Hannibal. I bet ole Mark Twain could tell you what he "heard" about ole LulaBelle. See the red light above the restaurant sign? Yep, that's LulaBelle's, the town brothel!! It was officially shut down in the 1950s. Inside there are a few showcases of the "fancy" clothing the lady's of the evening used to wear. It is a very good eating establishment now. Nice ambience, you should go there if you ever make it to Hannibal. Not everyone can say they've eaten a "nice" dinner in a brothel...
