The Crazy Girls is a topless show showing plenty of bottoms at the Riviera Casino in Las Vegas. But now they also want to spread their sin, taking their wares in a move across America. While they are still appearing in their topless show at the Riviera, a new Crazy Girls Cafe could perhaps be coming to a neighborhood near you.
Producer-owner Norbert Aleman is preparing to unveil the first Crazy Girls Cafe in the French Quarter in New Orleans. Then he has ambitious plans set for a string of them from as nearby as Reno to as far away as Atlantic City, N.J.
Dancers will strut their stuff atop the bar and customer tables at each place, and there’ll be a gorgeous female singer who’ll play mistress to oversee the party hijinx.
“It’s a fun, wild concept that marries fabulous food with delicious drinks and an outrageous party feel,” Norbert said. “It’s priced right so people will want to shake off the economic blues with a real fun night out without feeling pained when the check arrives.”
Norbert plans to have 10 venues open over the next 12 months under terms of a deal he has made with a Las Vegas gaming entertainment company.
Emmy Award winning CNN broadcast journalist host Larry King will appear in a rare one-night only show in Las Vegas at the Encore in answer to a dare from Encore developer Steve Wynn.
With more than 50 years experience in broadcasting, King will bring a wide range of stories and anecdotes to the stage. As it is on his talk show “Larry King Live”, no subject will be off limits during the Friday, June 19 performance.
The opening act will be Shawn King, Larry King’s wife, who recently released a new country album titled “In My Own Backyard.” Proceeds from the June 19 performance will benefit the Larry King Cardiac Foundation. The foundation assists uninsured individuals obtain the cardiac care that they would otherwise not be able to afford.
Tickets range from $59 to $79 and are available at the box office, by phone (702-770-9966).
