The Las Vegas Wranglers Hope You’ll Come For The Beefcake & Cheap Drinks, Stay For The Minor League Hockey
The ECHL’s Las Vegas Wranglers have attracted national attention with their faux-Veeck-ian promotions before, stunts ranging from œFormer Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich Prison Uniform Night to having Mini Kiss play before a midnight game. However, none of these events scrapped the bottom of the barrell so thoroughly as the one described below by the Las Vegas Sun’s John Katsilometes.
Sashaying through the arena concourse and posing for photos Tuesday will be members of the American Storm male review, who inhabit the V Theater at the Miracle Mile Shops at Planet Hollywood at Las Vegas Boulevard and Harmon Avenue Across from the Harley Davidson CafÃ© and CityCenter, and I™m Making the Title of the V Theater Obnoxiously Long Because I™ve Always Felt It Was Needlessly Wordy. Also lacing it up for this promotion are instructors from the life-altering Stripper-101 course (from V Theater, too, see above). This is where you poll/pole your friends for the best œpenalty shot reference.
Just wondering: What do you have to do to flunk Stripper-101? Choke on a tassel?
What this promotion really calls for is cheap booze (hic!), and the dudes abide. For $20, from 7:30 to 9:05 p.m. (those last five minutes are for last call, I guess), an open bar is available to of-age fans with proof of ID – and hopefully a designated driver. The hard stuff offered includes Russian Standard vodka, Crown Royal (œbecause the Crown is going down), Tommy Bahama rum, Bombay Sapphire gin (for Oscar nominees) and Patron Silver tequila.
