Skip to comments.(DFW) Airport Steaming Over Strip Club Neighbor
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.
Yes it does!!! ;-)
Rick’s Cabaret is a publicly traded company...ticker symbol - RICK
It's been a few years, but "Girls, Girls, Girls" was right there on Centinela just before entering LAX.
At the nudie bar....
Where the music stinks, and they water the drinks, the nudie bar.
Where the girlies dance in their underpants, the nudie bar.
Where you see their butt, and their trap stays shut, at the nudie bar.
Where you can’t touch a breast, but you can cave in a chest, at the nudie bar.
Where you look at a thigh, and blacken an eye, at the nudie bar.
Where the beer gives you gas, but the Bundys kick ass, at the nudie bar.
Where a buck’s enough to see their stuff, at the nudie bar.
Where the breasts may be fake but man do they shake, at the nudie bar.
Where you swear like a sailor, and wish you could nail her, at the nudie bar.
Where the cops are at the door, and there’s a Kennedy on the floor, at the nudie bar.
I guess their Body Scanner Pole Dance routine just hits a little to close to home for them...
A strip club too close to the entrance of the airport? The first thing across the border between Texas and Oklahoma on I-35 is a XXX-video store. Welcome to Texas. We have porn!
On the flip side, Welcome to Oklahoma. We have casinos.
Lots of LA-based cop shows, but NY & NJ too.
There are strip clubs and then there are strip clubs. I fail to see where a clean well run strip club is any more disruptive to the neighborhood then the loud roar of jets and the thought that they might crash on top of you. Now a nasty strip club is a different story, but that’s why towns employ people to regulate things with the citizen’s tax money. I went to my share when young, but as an old married guy they lost their interest but the dancers make some good income and the Muslims get to see what a woman looks like.
“upscale gentlemens club” = more cash, less flash.
>>Your retina was victimized.
I actually liked the visual portion of what I saw. What I didn’t like is that one of the dancers forever soiled one of my favorite songs. :) The song was the beautiful and sentimental “Those Were The Days” by Mary Hopkin... and it just shouldn’t be associated with the mental imagery baggage that it now carries for me.
I will pray for your recovery... :-D
Imagine if your neighbor was a stripper...
“Good evening ma’am, I am your neighbor from next door and I’m here to vacuum your carpet.”
Where Christmas is nice, and lap dances are half price, at the nudie bar.
Where you drink down the shooters, and unwrap the hooters, at the nudie bar.
Where eggnogs are plenty, and the girls all twenty, at the nudie bar.
Nude Nudes went tits up a couple years back
