After 45 years, stripper still packs 'em in (Carol Doda)
After 45 years, stripper still packs 'em in
Kevin Fagan, Chronicle Staff Writer
Sunday, August 23, 2009

The lights dimmed, and a wisp of a woman slowly danced down the middle of the barroom, hips gyrating forward, back, forward. "Just in time, you found me," she sang, and a father and his adult son at the bar lit up in grins.

"See, can you see? She's still amazing," the older man said excitedly, pointing. "Can you see?"

That's when Carol Doda spun and caught the spotlight just so, in just the right place, with just the right timing.

And just like in the old days in 1960s and '70s, when Doda was the most famous topless dancer on the planet, the 44-inch breasts once dubbed "the New Twin Peaks of San Francisco" found their special spot in the light.

"Wow," breathed the father at the bar, Bill Yankers.
"Oh my gosh, what you said is true," murmured his son, Wyatt.

snip...
She doesn't strip anymore, but the throngs that journey from around the country to see her nightclub singing act or visit her lingerie shop across town in Cow Hollow don't mind. Doda sings, she dances, she slings comedic banter - and most importantly to those who come to see her, she is living history.

snip...
"It was never just about being topless anyway," she said, coquettishly tossing her full head of shoulder-length, curly blond hair. "I always just wanted to give people a good time, have fun. Nothing really dirty - just fun."

2. I remember her well
She's the first boob job as far as I know. At least the first to get wall to wall coverage for it.

I'm delighted to see she's still making a splash

3. Not to let interest drop, but with the gravity of the situation, won't her twin assets drag her down
