So while in Clearwater the other week, I wanted to check out a strip club. My friend Jake says, "I know the perfect place, and it's right up the street from me!" Great! So I mentally get ready for a night of sleazy debauchery with my good buddy, make sure I've got enough $1s to keep the booties shaking, jump in my car and drive down.
From the outside, it looks pretty shady, which while in many cases may be a minus, becomes a plus in the case of strip clubs (shady's a good thing- you're there for shady business!)
$5 cover on a weeknight? fine.
$5 bottles of bud? cool.
$16 shots of patron? WHAT? shame on me for being so friendly to a stripper!
Here's the deal with this place- It's not really a strip club! It's a bikini bar. County ordinance, according to one of the "performers", bans nudity where alcohol is served.
So I got a private dance with a freindly stripper. $30 a song? "Good thing she's fine!" I thought to myself.
Too much money later, I was ready to go.
One cool thing, my "private dancer" was wicked friendly- she let me take some pics of her for a momento.
One-not-so-cool thing? Looking at the pictures the next morning! Yipes!
At least I supported a couple single moms.
It's hard to exactly rate an exotic dancing club, but I'll try. Â Personality's is in Pinellas county which is important in this case because you have to know that the laws in Pinellas county are more strict than in Hillsborough County. Â Not only are business that serve alcohol forced to close at 2 AM, but the dancers don't show much at all. Â For what it lacks in practical raunchiness, it makes up for in a friendly vibe. Â "Personality's" is a very apt name for this place because the dancers actually have personality. Â We had an amazing time, even if it had to end at 2 AM. Â Drink prices are somewhat more fair than what I expected. Â Still a rip off, but better than I expected. Â I don't know what their cover is because if you come after midnight, they don't charge you anything. Â I wouldn't come here if I had to pay a cover, but would come here again to just have some laughs and a good time. Â We just came here initially because it was within walking distance of the hotel and we needed a place where we could get loaded and then not have to drive.Review Source:
