    Here is the scenario....bachelor party in Vegas in June. Spearmint Rhino has been promised to one of the guys in the crew. Titty bars are his thing and for him, this is Mecca. He has never been to Vegas either. I don't do strip clubs often, and when I do, it's hole in the wall BYOB joints that I find much more fun. How can a group of 10-20 guys get inside the Rhino the cheapest way possible?

    Side questions, as I have never done the nice upscale expensive club before, For those just along for the ride, what's their best bet on not spending more than $20 or do? Can one just hang around without getting dances or booze? I understand this seems totally lame, but several are attending on the VERY cheap and never get to come to Vegas, so they will want to spend their time and money at the casinos mainly. Titty bars can be done locally.

    For the record, there will be multiple people updating live for the party in June and that part should be pretty interesting...

    As always, thanks in advance.
    Earl

    I'm guessing you guys won't be doing bottle service. This would be the easiest way to get 10-20 people in.

    You can call them. They give free limo ride with free entry. I'm not sure how they will react to 20 people at once. You could split it up among your friends by calling in clusters (3-5 people) over a short period of time.

    I guess you could just chill and watch from far away without buying booze. Just don't sit next to the stage. Spearmint Rhino is small and does get very packed on the weekends. Sapphire is much larger.

    $20 will get you a single lap dance or a drink. That's about it.

    The girls at spearmint are much better than your hole in the wall strip joints. They always end up taking all my money I brought without letting me finish on them.

    Cheapest way to get into the Rhino is via their free limo pick up. Give them a call a little while before you want to head there.
    If you're not planning on spending any money, be sure to also plan on not having any fun. Expect to stand up the duration of the evening and not be given the time of day by any dancers.

    Perhaps y'all might consider a topless show instead?

    No, the Rhino has been promised. Also, I am aware of the talent there, and also aware of the hustling skills they have. I figure a half hour to an hour tops we will spend there, probably early in the evening. It does seem like a bunch of lame-o's but this is a group that has more fun than just about anyone....just broke as shit.

    Not to be rude. but this sounds like the exact type of group they don't want there. Think about it from a business standpoint. Let's say you own a club and provide free limo service to customers. Do you want to waste the time and money it would take to get 20 guys to your club just to have a bunch of them stand around and not spend any money? In the same vein, if you were going to the club as a paying customer do you want to have the place crowded by guys trying to get a free show? My advice would be for the few guys who are willing to spend some money to go and have a good time. Let the cheapskates stay back and play the penny slots.

    I agree with the Cooler on this one. Managing a large groups activities is always difficult because of different tastes, bankroll, etc.

    The ones that want to go and have money to spend should split off into a smaller group, get the limo, and enjoy their time at the club. The rest can plan another activity or get in some time seeing the strip.

    Technically, these guys are not "cheapskates" but just lack sufficient funds. A cheapskate is someone who has the discretionary monies to spend, but chooses not to do so.
    But either way, if you can't or won't pay, then don't expect to play.

    What it sounds more like, 20 guys go to a Subway Sandwhich store but only 4 order food, the other 16 get a glass of water
    and watch other people's sub getting made, then go home

    Good point, I suppose I used the word because that's how I would view someone in a strip club who wasn't spending any money.

    I actually agree with you guys as well. Now that I think about it, guys that won't be spending the money probably will want to go ahead and skip the trip anyway. That would shrink us down to about 6-10 that would spend a little bit of money. Call it what you want, broke, cheap, ******, whatever. I am fully aware the club wouldn't want us to bother as a large group but their concerns are not my concerns. However I do agree with these posts, it's probably better to leave the rest behind and catch up later.

    Also check out their offers mid afternoon. I have been on Sunday (say 3-6) and beers are cheap ($3 maybe)? don't recall, but it was cheap. limo, free entry, couple of $3 beers, 1 dance, and a tip is under $40.

    I'd make it really simple - tell the guys that are going to Vegas - there will be a Spearmint Rhino evening & they need to plan on dropping at least $100 each there. If that's too much, they should plan on missing that part of the trip.
    In my view, if you walk into a mid-scale or higher strip club, you gotta figure on at least $100.
    Remind them - it's Vegas! A $100? That's only a few bets! $100 can buy an hour of $5 blackjack or an hour at Spearmint Rhino. Ask them which of the two they think would be more fun.

    Riddick - all things being 'normal', I would too... but this is for a buddy's bachelor party! C'Mon!
    I think most guys would gladly drop the $100 (or 2) at SpRhino, rather than be left behind playing $5 blackjack.

    I would go with the strip club also. In terms of bj, I'm not thinking about playing cards. :wink2:
