Posted on 01/06/2011 6:34:43 AM PST by Zakeet
FORT WORTH One of the busiest airports in the world will soon be a neighbor to an upscale gentlemens club, but some prominent North Texans are trying to shut it down before it even opens.
A new Ricks Cabaret is about to open near the South entrance to DFW International Airport.
The problem for many is that its one of the first things youll see going to or from the airport.
The club is expected to open its doors in a few weeks. Owners say their place is going to make the airport sexier.
But for travelers at DFW, the naked truth has yet to be seen. The new strip club is trying to get a liquor license from the Texas Alcoholic Beverage Commission.
Prominent Tarrant County leaders, including County Judge Glen Whitley, are protesting the permit.
The club will be located between the airport and Americans corporate headquarters.
In a statement, American says the establishment poses a danger to employees and airport passengers.
Its not something that you want to see in your area in your neighborhood certainly dont want to see it at the entrance to DFW says Whitley.
Concerns over the club include that having a liquor license will cause a spike in alcohol-related crimes and traffic accidents.
Cloud says if Ricks Cabaret doesnt get a liquor license, then they can go BYOB, allowing dancers to be totally nude. Now you got people brining in their 24-pack, they are sitting there guzzling their 24-pack then they are getting in their car and driving, there is no controls.

American Airlines is right ... too much bouncy is not good!
Here in TX, I have about 10 within bicycling distance. Texans love their boobies, I guess.
LAX had one pretty close, had been there for ages, may still be there.
What, the city fathers don’t want the TSA to have competition?
Why would they object? The TSA operates a peepshow.
If I had to make a choice, I’d take strippers at an airport club over a strip search by the TSA.
Offer shuttle bus service from the terminal gates and they will have a winner.
It finally met it's demise a few years ago and the building was just recently torn down...
Yup, one right on Century Boulevard just outside the 405. Or so I heard.....
“Texans love their boobies, I guess.”
I’m developing a real fondness for Texas!
I was in the DFW area long, long ago when I was young and single. They had some of the finest gentlemen’s clubs I’d ever been in.
That area is in the city limits of Fort Worth. DFW management needs to go do thier cry baby act at a city council meeting
like the regular residents do they don’t want a particular “type” of business opening up.
It’s only about the visibility of the club. There are others very nearby that are not as visible from the freeway. And they have been there 30 years or more.
Speak for yourself, pal!
LOL, that's probably their plan.
I can't wait to see the "Rick's Caberet" bus cruise by while I'm waiting for the parking shuttle.
Maybe the driver will be one of the ladies in "costume".
Nah, the real reason is that TSA doesn’t want the competition.
There's a comment attached to the original article that reminded me of something I forgot:
The Frankfurt (Germany) airport had a strip club on one of the lower levels. It may still be there...
Some buddies took me there about 25 years ago. I still have some... um, recollections of things I saw that day. :)
Let ‘em open. Where else are the pilots gonna get drunk before their flights?
It’s still there from the last time I passed through
Your retina was victimized.
In interior billboards in the Reno airport ADVERTISE for “gentlemen’s” clubs.
