A Tampa Bay strip club planning on featuring a Sarah Palin look-a-like stripper during the Republican National Committee convention just completed a $1 million club make-over in preparation for the event. Some Tampa area strip club owners are anticipating that profits will “quadruple” during the GOP convention, according to the New York Daily News.
The Sarah Palin doppelganger will appear at “Thee DollHouse” for the duration of the August GOP presidential convention. The Sarah Palin stripping parody will feature a professional exotic dancer decked out in Palinesque glasses and wearing the former Alaskan governor’s signature hairdo.
“Thee DollHouse” has been a premiere “gentleman’s club” for 20 years, according to the business website. The Tampa strip club also bills itself as “refined, friendly and discreet.” “Thee DollHouse” also claims to have served “a-list actors,” and “sports celebrities.”
Another Tampa strip club, 2001 Odyssey, has added a Club Cam System webcam and online chat room designed to entice Republican convention patrons to “meet the talent” prior to heading south for the Florida political convention. The 2001 Odyssey was named to the “Seven Wonders of Tampa Bay” list thanks at least in part to the “World Famous Spaceship VIP Room,” the New York Daily News notes. Strip club visitors eager to virtually connect with the erotic performers should be prepared to have their credit cards ready – a charge of $4 per minute on top of a membership fee does apply.
The Tampa Bay area boasts more than 40 strip clubs, Tampa Bay Online reports. During the 2009 Super Bowl some strip clubs remained open 24-hours a day and at least doubled the number of exotic dancers scheduled to perform. Similar hours of operation and increased on-stage presence is anticipated during the 2012 Republican National Committee convention.
