What are the things that puzzle, enrage, delight and tickle you as you go about your life in Madison?

Outer Limits club

The controversial strip club West of Middleton is re-opening tonight with free admission. Anyone going? I wonder how long they will stay open before they get closed for violations or crime. I give them two months.

OK, seriously... the strip club thread is started by Beaver? Too much.

I saw ads for bouncers/bartenders on craigslist a few weeks ago. I was wondering if they were sneaking into the Scatz building. That building is made for a strip club.

They'll need to import some strippers. Wisconsin strippers are just plain nasty.

I had my money riding on MadMind, but now I see he somehow missed this thread and worked himself into a froth in a new one.

Where do good strippers come from? Chicago? New Orleans?

I'm no strip club conniseur but I did end up in two clubs on Bourbon street last year. Neither visit lasted more than 2 minutes. The clubs were a bump and grind away from a staph infection.

Haven't been there since its been remodeled (again). But now I think its actually under the Silk name. I have a bachelor party coming up this weekend and there's a possibility we'll stop by after we're done at in Dells.....you know, for science....


Speaking of the Dells, our main event is...Wett Nightclub owned by the guy who owns Mt. Olympus, which features (wait for it) triple $$$ bottle service for that authentic Vegas experience. They've come a long way since Big Chief's Go Cart Track apparently.


I get the feeling I'm going to be broke for a month after this weekend.

The place in the Dells is called Wett? That's unfortunate.

i was at a strip club in Juneau a decade ago, can't remember the name but I think it was right in the town square. There was a railing around the stage with a padded top covered in porous fabric, not vinyl. All the guys would lean on it with their undoubtedly clean arms and hands, they would put money in their mouths and lay back on it with their greasy hair. The strippers would straddle and sit (and grind) on it... it was kinda gray, probably not originally.

I'm getting a little yucked out just remembering it.

Withholding any personal endorsement, if it's one thing about Silk I do respect is that somehow they managed to be the only new strip club to open in Milwaukee since On The Border in 1996 (Solid Gold and Crazy Horse were simply changeovers), and aside from Club Bristol, the only other club to manage to open in Dane County for over 30 years. It's just ashame that a legal business has to fight their way in armed with a specialized attorney and lawsuits, and making the transition from bar to exotic dancing under the radar.

That was Cocktails & Dreams, which Silk then purchased and dumped $2 Million into to have the building transformed into Silk Juneau. Probably the most impressive transformation of any building I've ever seen. Having had been there once or twice before, then once or twice after, the club is unrecognizable from what it once was.

Good strippers, or at least attractive strippers, come from just about everywhere. I think there are plenty of attractive women in Madison/Wisconsin, but getting them on the pole is another thing altogether. I think there's still a heavy stigma in Dane County/Wisconsin concerning gentlemen's clubs. That and because there's only 3 clubs in the entirety of Dane County, girls are probably concerned that they'll see someone they know, while in areas with more clubs and a larger population base, chances of that happening are somewhat lessened, or at least perceived that way.

Back when my sister was living in Shawano I drove with my grandparents up to visit for a weekend. As we were passing through Mackville my grandfather, 89 at the time, inquired about possibly stopping for "lunch at that local tavern there." After I informed him of the true nature of the establishment he maintained his ignorance of that fact, but I just know he saw one of those billboards on 41.
