Rick's Cabaret-NYC 2nd Anniversary Celebration Was A Smashing Success


NEW YORK CITY-(October 29, 2007)-The females wore slinky black and red gowns and barely-there slip dresses while the males peered from behind colorful masks during three gala parties that celebrated the second anniversary of Rick's Cabaret-NYC. The nightspot is owned and operated by Rick's Cabaret International, Inc. [NASDAQ:RICK], operator of upscale gentlemen's clubs.

"It was a great party each night," said Ed Anakar, Regional Manager of Rick's Cabaret International Inc., who hosted the event with Ken Sistrunk, General Manager of Rick's Cabaret-NYC. "More than 1,200 guests attended the parties, we had a line at the front door, and all three floors were busy," Mr. Sistrunk said.

To supplement the party atmosphere guests received door prizes that included the chance to win $2,000 worth of gift certificates to the fabulous Rick's Cabaret steak house, a 750ml bottle of Louis Royer XO Cognac and one of 150 mini bottles of the top cognac offered through a special promotional partnership with Carriage House Imports and Louis Royer Cognac.
