"NO minors/Liberals." So reads the fine print on the flyer for Tattletales, one Tampa area strip club seeking to attract the Republican hordes in town this week for the Republican National Convention.
Some predicted that area exotic clubs would see triple the business of Super Bowl weekend, but on Monday Tampa's 20 or so "gentleman's clubs" have reported no bump in sales so far.
"I'm sure it's the hurricane," Vicki Baham told the Tampa Bay Times. Baham's a manager at Tampa's most famous strip joint, Mons Venus, where owner Joe Redner introduced the lap dance. "People are freaking out about it."
In the meantime, strip clubs are pulling out all the stops in creative advertising, encouraging Republican delegates "to party like a liberal," says CNN.com. Not that that would be good for business.
Here are some of their more creative efforts:
