Rick's Cabaret New York Offers $10 Fixed Price Lunch of Filet Mignon, Free Admission and Manhattan's Longest Happy Hour With $7 Drinks

(January 31, 2006)- Rick’s Cabaret NYC, the upscale gentlemen’s club near Penn Station and the Empire State Building, has begun offering a $10 fixed price weekday lunch that offers a Caesar salad plus specialties such as filet mignon, steak and shrimp, French cut chicken breast or even a cheeseburger.

Admission to the club at 50 West 33rd Street is free from 11 am to 7 pm Monday through Friday, and all drinks cost just $7 in what is believed to be the city’s longest "happy hour." The club is fully equipped with wireless access so patrons can check the market and stay in touch with the office as they dine and watch performances by the famous Rick's Cabaret Girls.

"It’s our way of rewarding the hardworking businessman or businesswoman who wants a bit of midday relaxation and entertainment," says Ed Anakar, general manager of Rick's Cabaret NYC. "As far as we know, it’s the best deal in town for a really high quality meal from a first class steakhouse, plus you get to watch the beautiful Rick's Girls while you eat."

Rick's Cabaret, which operates a chain of high quality gentlemen's clubs in Houston, Charlotte, Minneapolis and other cities, opened its first Manhattan club last September. It has become a late night favorite of the financial and business communities and has a fast-growing midday business.
