I am not saying they need to be shut down (though I would be happier if they were), but I really dislike Velvet…..(the Gentleman’s Club downtown for the uninformed). It seems like everything they do to promote the business is VERY showy, which I am sure plays a huge part in their success, but I think it’s a little much.
Here is one of the owners Hummer’s. Not only is it a jacked up “pimped out” Hummer, but the scantily clad ladies on the side are anything but discrete.
Here’s one of them now. This was taken at the ABC warehouse where people upkeep ABC license stuff. Not passing judgment, but it was a pretty unsurprising place to see this thing parked.
Aside from the TWO massive Hummers with custom graphics, this place is in the building downtown where the Princess Diana mural is painted…. Yep, your heard right, Princess on the side, lap dances inside!
And what do we have on the corner, why it’s a guy in a monkey suit and a dude with a huge fro wig on holding a cardboard bikini girl. It just keeps getting better!
To finalize the showiness, they have literally topped it off with two big ole spotlights on the top of the building. At night you can see the call of seduction from miles away. Visitors from afar approach Richmond on 95 North and wonder what gem those lights lead to. Part of the business plan I am sure, but again, mighty “in your face” don’t ya think?
I am only one person, but I am getting tired of this. I know it’s all over the television and the internet, but popular and rampant does not always indicate something good or reasonable. I can’t wait to have kids and have them ask me why there is a 10 foot bikini girl on the car next to us… The explanation will be fun!
