Strip club offers bathroom valets

Jan. 26, 2006 at 5:03 PM

WILKES-BARRE, Pa., Jan. 26 (UPI) -- A strip club preparing for opening in eastern Pennsylvania plans to offer unusual amenities, including tuxedoed bathroom attendants and valet parking.

Club 10 Plus, of course, also plans to include exotic dancers who will take it all off, the Wilkes-Barre Times-Leader reports.

Local officials have been fighting the club, scheduled to open in February, for well over a year. Steven Barrouk, president of the Greater Wilkes-Barre Chamber of Business and Industry, called it a "disgrace to the community."

Ordinances aimed at the club would require dancers to keep at least 20 feet away from customers and bans them from accepting tips. Elaine Cook, a lawyer representing the owner, Sal Scalzo, argues that those ordinances would not apply to Club 10 Plus because they were passed after its license was approved.

John O'Neill, an assistant professor of hospitality management at Penn State, said that the club's luxury touches are unusual for the area as well as for the type of business.

"There wouldn't be anything in Wilkes-Barre or State College for that matter that really fits into that category," he said.
