Here it is. The link to a look inside the life of a Chippendales dancer. The article is courtesy of Kelly, the blogger extraordinaire of whom I’ve been speaking this week. She was able to obtain an interview with one of the men & gives her insight into the show. http://www.demonloversbooksandmore.com/2010/08/chippendales-beyond-skin-deep.html
Tomorrow, for Thursday Thoughts—as long as I have my act together, I’ll give my take on the show and the audience…which can be a show in itself. 😉
& since we’re in Las Vegas, taking a look at the Rio, we’re not talking about the military. We’re talking about the boys in black—the bartenders at McFadden’s and the ushers and waiters at the Chippendales show.
First off, to the cuties who work at McFadden’s—especially the New York boys, Eric and Neil—Yooohooo! Thanks for putting up with us ladies and chatting the time away with us before we went to our shows. You two were lots of fun to talk to. Maybe next time we can get you to take your shirts off… 😉 McFadden’s is a great Irish Pub within Rio. They have a sign that warns patrons about dancing on the bar. Here’s Kelly, the blogger extraordinaire, with the sign.
The second night we were there they were having the final round in the Girl-on-Girl Kissing Contest. As the first pair were making out, one of the other couples fell off the bar onto the flock of guys below. Guess they didn’t head the warning on the sign. (If I remember correctly, no one seemed to be hurt.)
Quite an interesting place and event in which to watch human behavior, but as a writer isn’t that what we do? Find out of the ordinary things, observe and document? Even if you’re not a writer, it’s a good place to grab some beer and grub. Plus, you can see Rio’s Show in the Sky right outside the pub in Rio’s Masquerade Village. It’s a free show, open to the public, performed hourly from 6 pm until 11pm every Thursday through Sunday. The male and female dancers are hot!
Then of course there’s the staff up at the Chippendale’s show who add their own special touches to the Chip experience, especially the tall guy in the leather pants…mmmm… but more on Chippendales is to come this week so I’m not going to spoil dinner now. 😉
