Gilbert, MN, cancels "Whorehouse Days"
http://www.startribune.com/stories/462/5494025.html

-snip-

In the early years of the 20th century, Gilbert was known far and wide among lumberjacks and miners as a hotbed of saloons and prostitution.

Whorehouse Days was supposed to include a four-poster bed race, a best-dressed madam contest, competitive beer-mug sliding along an outdoor bar and a performance of "The Best Little Whorehouse in Gilbert." All of the activities would have been rated G or PG, organizers vowed.

In the days leading up to the scheduled celebration, organizers had attracted nearly $50,000 in sponsorships and were starting to fill up nearby hotels with weekend reservations, Cap said. But to pull it off, they needed the use of several city buildings.
