Re: “The Bottom Line?

Yes, we know the post goes back to 2008. Jeeze. I was just updating some of the info here. I would say that most men have gone to a topless club. Yes, the girls knew what was going on and they had to put up with it. I never knew a college graduate in the clubs during the time I was around them. I doubt very seriously that they have changed. I have a few friends that are in the business, and it all is still there. Money is what it was all about. Danny wanted the money too. Most of us in the business made pretty good money at the time. The government went after Danny any way they could. As an example, the gambling. Poker machines won and lost. It was usually not a money maker. I remember when Tiny's was on Winchester and Tuhlahoma. You walk into the bar. There must have been 50 poker machines or more in there. What were they for? The kids? Danny had a lot of faults, but he made his money. If you treated him right, he treated you right. 1988, 1998, 2008. Makes no difference. The clubs are what they are. If you don't like them, then stay out of them. Some of the clubs may be a little fancy, but it makes no difference. You can put glitter on a hunchback, it is still a hunchback. Danny will be fine.

Re: “The Bottom Line?

I worked for Danny Owens years before he went to jail. Blake was not in the clubs at the time. I was one of the housemothers for the club. Danny was a wonderful man to me and most others. Did he condone drugs? Not really. But, he knew if they spent all there money on drugs, they would be back the next day paying $2.00 for each table dance they did. If you walked out of the club before your shift was over, it cost $100.00. Their were many fines that were put on the girls. This kept them coming back to work. I really don't think Danny approved of anything the girls did pertaining to drugs, etc. He did care, but the main thing he was interested in, was the money. Girls made money for him by paying for each table dance and fines. Each girl was worth X amount of dollars to him working. If they left with someone or got too messed up to work, then it cost the girl many dollars. That was the way it was back then. All the clubs did that in those years. I remember when the clubs were a little more elegant, but as time passed, they got worse. I have so many stories I could tell. Times have changed now. Also, just because you have mirrors on the walls, fancy furniture, and everyone dressed to the "T", doesn't mean something funny isn't happening behind the scenes. It always has and always will. Danny, Kaye, John, Frances, and many others were great people who got caught up making a lot of money, and forgot to pay the "bills", if you know what I mean. Blake, John, and Kaye are out of jail and Danny will be out, I believe in 2014 or earlier. I can only say they always treated me with respect and they did care for the employees, just in a different way. The girls were very important to him.
