Rick's Cabaret International, Inc. To Throw A "Miami Due Diligence Ball" At Its Florida Adult Nightclub, Tootsie's Cabaret


MIAMI - (February 19, 2008) - Rick's Cabaret International, Inc. [NASDAQ:RICK], the premier publicly traded operator of gentlemen's clubs, will hold the first-ever Rick's Cabaret Miami Due Diligence Ball for investors on Thursday, March 6, 2008 from 5 to 8 pm at Tootsie's Cabaret in Miami Gardens.

"Investors like to do a careful study of a company and its products before buying the stock, so we're giving serious investors, brokers, portfolio managers, analysts and bankers a chance to visit with our executives and to see up close and in person how our business model works," said Rick's Cabaret President and CEO Eric Langan. "We've held a number of these events at our flagship club in New York City and they've been an essential part of introducing the company to the financial community, plus they are a lot of fun. The investor gets to experience our hospitality, check out our steakhouse and enjoy our superb entertainment."

Rick's Cabaret completed its purchase of Tootsie's Cabaret November 30, 2007 and the next day assumed management of the mega club that won the award for "Best Adult Club of the Southeast" at the 2007 Exotic Dancer Awards Show. Tootsie's was also named the Best Adult Club in Miami by New Times. Xcitement Magazine proclaimed that it "Out Vegas'es Vegas."

"Tootsie's is one of the top ten adult nightclubs in the entire country and is an excellent example of our acquisition strategy at its best," said Mr. Langan, "It's a great club and we've made it even better with several operational changes such as the addition of new VIP facilities and enhancements to the restaurant."

If you cannot attend, feel free to pass this invitation on to other South Florida investment community professionals you think might be interested in learning more about Rick's Cabaret.
