The Anchorage Press reports
on a prank whose grossness lies not in what is said, but rather in what isn't. Read it for yourself:
Troopers were called to Showboat II, a club also known as “Showgirls,” where “a female employee had spiked another female employee's drink with a laxative” according to troopers. No further details were given, and the investigation continues.
Thinking about this too much might just give me nightmares tonight.
Commenting is not available in this channel entry.
My brother, who lives in Fairbanks, told me that the place is known locally for trafficking in desperate Russian teenagers who are made to work off "debts" by stripping and doing such other tasks as you can no doubt imagine. The other notable feature of Showboat II/Showgirls/Lonely Lady, I was told, is that it has a special section for patrons who can't come into the main lounge because they are below legal drinking age. Hmm, too young to buy beer but old enough to buy lap dances?
The Lonely Lady was the original name of the club in Fairbanks. You are wrong about the club. I worked for the late Sam Jeffcoat (club owner) for many years. The club in the early 80's and 90's was as classy as a topless gentalmens club could be. As a dancer and later talent sercher for the club I can assure you that the women who worked there were class acts. Just as the many sports teams that were regular customers in the club.Most of the women came from the lower 48. and were paid a very high wage and commitssion. All of thier living and travel exp were paid by the club. prostitution nor drugs were tolerated at this club! gets your facts stright before you talk about something you know nothing about.
Great times, great money, and great girls!
As far as I can tell, this is a fairly-accurate statement re: SHOWGIRLS club/BIG TIMBER motel in Anchorage. The comments made re: 'the early 80s-90s' version of the club could use some updating, since it is 2009 as I type this- basically some 20-30 years later. Time changes all things.
A good friend of mine stayed there very recently, and I can assure anyone reading this that the place is a dump. Basically a whorehouse that pretends to be alcohol-free so they can hire 19 year-old girls to service their customers.
