bows and sugar cubes
Seeing this reminded me of a very peculiar Copenhagen myth, namely about gay men cruising at the penthouse coffee shop of a Copenhagen department store.
Supposedly, these unidentified gay men would be sitting at their tables stacking sugar cubes, and if they stacked them this way rather than that (or something along those lines - I can't remember the specifics), it signified that they were game for hooking up. (Or looking at stationery on the 4th floor or whatever. Perhaps it was much more innocent than the story made it out to be).
I really don't know if there's a grain of truth to this story, but if not, I think it's so random it deserves a prize. Imagine all these gay men with nothing better to do than sit all day in a department store coffee shop, stacking sugar cubes.
Anyway, the picture is re-blogged from Ace Hotel's blog.
