Can I just rant for a moment?
So I am in a business with all men..ALL men. I may get one or two ladies in the course of the year but that's definitely the exception not the rule. I travel all the freaking time and often have to set meetings on the fly. I use my handy, dandy iphone and boom! I am all knowledgeable about whatever city I am in that day. So here goes my crazy happening for the day that prompted this rant..
If you are going to be strip club in the middle of a really nice area PLEASE, PLEASE do two things. A) name yourself something that indicates that you are in fact a place where naked people will be twirling around a shiny gold apparatus and B) please don't confuse us with categorizing yourself as a restaurant just because you do in fact have some sort of food offering next to the Cristal on the menu.
Hi Mr. CEO of 3 billion dollar defense firm..thank you for finally accepting my meeting invite. I am very much looking forward to taking you to a swanky dinner and hammering out details of our upcoming joint venture. Where would you like to go? ME: I called XYZ's restaurant, and Tokyo's- they both have a reservation for tomorrow night. Would either work?
Response: "Well Tokyo's is a strip club..they do have food there but I think we would be safer at the other place. They have a great fillet..."
Oh my GAWD.. Blushing lady say what??
So to all the strip clubs out there: Please name yourself appropriately. Candies cabaret, The Booby trap..we get it, but to call your self Tokyo's and say that you serve upscale sushi..well, that's just wrong on more levels than I can count!
PS..true story..I still haven't recovered!
