NEW YORK CITY--(October 6, 2005)-- Rick's
Cabaret - NYC, the luxurious new midtown Manhattan gentlemen’s
club (50 West 33rd Street), has begun serving a sumptuous midday
buffet lunch and will soon begin erotic dance lessons for ladies”
with a $2,500 cash prize for the best “student.” The
club is operated by Rick’s Cabaret International,
which owns 10 adult nightclubs around the country.
buffet lunch will be the handiwork of Executive Chef Daniel
Cohn, a graduate of the Culinary Institute of America
who oversees a state-of-the-art kitchen at Rick’s where first
class meals are available up to 4 am in the morning.
In addition to providing a pleasant accompaniment to the buffet
lunch of carved meat and fresh salads, the famous Girls of Rick’s
dancers will soon be available to tutor female patrons of the Manhattan
Club in the gentle art of intimate dances. A $10 cover charge gains
access to the club, the buffet, the dance lessons and the cabaret
show. All drinks are $7 from 11:30 a.m. to 7 p.m.
“We’ve been getting an increasing number of women customers
who come as dates of our male patrons and they have been requesting
private dances for themselves,” said Eric Langan,
CEO of Rick’s Cabaret. “A number of them have asked
our dancers to give them lessons, so we’ll provide the lessons.
After we’ve had a few classes we’ll be holding a series
of contests for the best amateur dancers, and we’ll award
the top prize of $2,500 in late November.
A four-day grand opening extravaganza for Rick’s Cabaret Sept.
21-24 drew packed crowds at the three-story club that is located
between the Empire State Building and Madison Square Garden.
