Thanks! I'd been thinking of going to Little Darlings. Olympic Gardens, for some reason, never hit my radar. I see their name on the list of clubs, and I move right on. Wonder why.
Ah, the Palomino. That was the second strip club I ever visited (Cheetah's was the first. I was ordering a screwdriver, the only drink I could think of ordering at the time, when this MILF snuck up behind me and ran her hands along my back right above my belt, tucking a finger in my pants and giving them a quick tug. I had no clue what to do, but I'm sure I grinned like an idiot). I think I stopped by on Palomino's amateur night then - no dancers were on the floor, but there were women stripping on the catwalk once every 10 minutes or so, with an amateur Shecky Greene in between them shouting: "Was she hot or what?" telling a bad joke, then shouting at the mike: "Is this thing on?" Didn't get any laps there; I think all the dances were upstairs VIPs, and I didn't know what those were at the time.
Thanks for the tips!
Last time I went (last year April) I went to Rhino, CH3, and Hustler. I actually had a good time at Hustler and wrote about my adventures on the old Zbone site. Rhino is always fun and I get there after 11:00 pm. I always drive a rental car so I don't have to worry about the cab hassle. Once a few years ago I went to CH2 which was a lot of fun and got in for free because I was wearing my Disney Imagineering jacket and the doorman couldn't stop laughing. Sapphire's is a beautiful looking club but my laps there were always very tame. Olympic Gardens used to be fun but my last couple of times were not impressive. There used to be an interesting club called Seamless that would turn into a regular club at 4 am and move the strip club action into a back room. When you entered the club there was a topless dancer sitting in a giant martini glass. This club was around the corner from the Orleans. I think it has since closed or changed hands.
I second the glitter gulch comment STAY AWAY!
Run away as fast as possible.
