    ...Around that time period, Mills was having an affair with Foxe, a local stripper. On October 7, 1974, the two of them had been drinking and were driving near the waterfront in Washington, D.C. at around 2:00 a.m. The park police pulled the vehicle over, and Foxe attempted to flee the scene by jumping into the Tidal Basin.[5] The incident attracted much publicity, and eventually led to Mills' resignation two months later as Chairman of the House Ways and Means Committee. He was re-elected to his congressional seat in 1974, but he did not run for re-election in 1976.[6][7]

    That's not a real bike. Real bikes have horizontal top tubes.

    PS: To be fair, the previous winner didn't have a bike in the picture.

    Who remembers 13th and 14th street and the seediness...

    The Silver Slipper used to be at 815 13th Street. Which would have been where the alley is.

    From the article:
    "My wife is not so crazy about the place," he said. "I guess she's been in here only twice since we've been open. But I've met many fine and talented people down here.

    From me - we only heard about it growing up ( in nearby Md). A threat if you didn't do well in school (made by teachers or rude students ) was "well you can always go work on 14th st."
