The recession may have fuelled sales in the liquor industry, but another industry built around vice is apparently still suffering.We’re talking about the strip clubs of Las Vegas, which have had a tough time attracting paying customers as tourists have been forced to cut back on discretionary spending, according to The Las Vegas Review-Journal (via USA Today).
As such, the city’s strip joints have come up with increasingly innovative ways to draw a crowd.
According to the LVRJ:
Some, such as Cheetah’s, will give you two-for-one lap dances every afternoon.
Others, like the Can Can Room and Crazy Horse III, halve the price of a lap dance that usually costs $20 for three to 4½ minutes at an all-nude club or two minutes at a topless joint.
And if the prospect of a nude woman writhing a few millimeters from you isn’t enough to get your business, how about a nice brisket?
Treasures lays out a free buffet, featuring brisket, pizza, bratwurst and Italian sausage to entice customers during the early evening hours, when business typically is slow.
Las Vegas’ 32 strip clubs bring in around $8 billion annually and employee between 30,000 and 40,000 exotic dancers, according to LVRJ.
