Rick's Cabaret New York City turns into a jungle March 12-16

NEW YORK CITY – (March 7, 2013) -- The girls of Ricks's Cabaret New York go native March 12th-16th when the upscale midtown club stages a non-stop “Welcome to the Jungle” party. The club is part of the publicly traded Rick’s Cabaret International, Inc. (NASDAQ:RICK) group of 36 clubs nationwide.

The cabaret at 50 West 33rd Street, across from the Empire State Building and just a block from Madison Square Garden, will feature a special menu at its Zagat-rated steak house and discounted drinks throughout the week. The club is expected to be packed with fans attending the Big East championship basketball tournament.

The event will be supported throughout the week by Don Q rum and Corona Light beer, with complimentary tastings Tuesday and Wednesday.

“Our girls are really getting into the spirit of our ‘Welcome to the Jungle’ week,” said Ken Sistrunk, general manager of the cabaret. “They’ve been making their own jungle costumes, the DJs have been creating jungle-appropriate play lists and the bartenders are coming up with amazing new drinks just for the occasion.”

Ricks's Cabaret New York was selected as the “#1 strip club in New York” by Playboy.com. It holds week-long theme parties throughout the year, but the parties held around the annual Big East basketball championships are always special.
