Admiral Theatre, a strip club in Albany Park, Chicago, is playing “Secret Santa” for children in need in the Albany area for the fourth year in a row this season. The “Lap Dance for the Needy” toy drive, which began on December 9th, offers the adult nightclub’s clientele a nude lap dance free of charge in exchange for an unused children’s toy.
“Believe it or not, I believe our humble gentleman’s club has actually become a Christmas tradition for some people,” says Tim Brown, Admiral Theatre’s Marketing Manager.
Brown also said that this year, they will be keeping a look out for the “scrooges” who have taken advantage of the drive in recent years by bringing in dollar store toys.
“I don’t want to turn anyone away, but we want to make sure people aren’t abusing it,” says Brown. “I had one gentleman come in with a bag of plastic spiders and say ‘Well, it’s better than nothing.’ Well, he’s right. But we want people to be happy on Christmas morning.”
Once the drive ends on December 21st, Brown and his staff will load up all the toys collected and deliver them anonymously to the small storefront community organizations and churches in the Albany Park area.
Who knew that tata’s could inspire such tremendous generosity from the average Joe?
