Is It News When Dallas Gets Yet Another Upscale Topless Joint? Sure, Why Not.
Houston-based Rick's Cabaret must really like Dallas, 'cause this morning the chain of think tanks announced it's spending $7.5 million to buy a second joint -- this one, the current and soon-to-be-former home of Platinum Club II on Northwest Highway near Stemmons Freeway. Rick's, which spent $10 mil for The Executive Club back in March, is going to rebrand the PC2 as Club Onyx, which, says the media release, is all about "catering to African-American gentlemen" and attracting "an avid clientele of professional athletes, musicians and business executives." Turns out, the publicly traded chain even has a name for the format: the "Urban Gentlemen’s format." Or Tuesday. --Robert Wilonsky
