This is a button for Pete and Shorty’s bar and grill in Clearwater Florida. It advertises itself as an “Iowa Style” tavern and you can interpret that however you want. I bought this at a flea market in Florida because I’m a compulsive button collector, I liked the design, and I was curious what this is referring to. Some light internet research revealed that the peeking in question refers to a bathroom gag. In the restrooms there are pictures of nude people with a fig leaf shaped board covering the “bathing suite area”. When lifted to take a peek, a buzzer goes off in the entire restaurant letting everyone know that you are a filthy sex pervert. I’m not sure if these buttons are for sale or if they are a consolation prize for being publicly shamed but either way, here it is. I’ve never been there so I didn’t peek but given the opportunity, I think most of us would.
2.25” – clasp back- ?
