Best Upshift of a Successful Date Night
PT’s Showclub’s Saturday Evening Couples Soiree
So you’re out on a dinner date and the sparks are flying. Like not just flying, but absolutely lighting up the sky. You want to stay out and about, and not just race back to one of your places straight after dessert-and-coffee. But seriously, the fireworks . . . Swing on over to PT’s Showclub. Every Saturday evening there (you may know it better by its former name, Platinum Plus) is “couples soiree” night, at which couples — of any gender combination — are welcome to get out on the floor and strut, grind, lambada, dirty-dance, grope, and otherwise flaunt their stuff. In concept, it’s not much different from any other Saturday night at a dance club. But remember, this is a venue more known for dancers removing their clothes and throwing down sexyish moves than offering a, well, couples show. You might feel less inhibited, or perhaps more exhibitionist, surrounded by others in similar situations themselves. Perhaps it’s a bit of clever marketing — trying to get men and women into the club under more traditional auspices, and then hoping they like what else is on offer from the regular menu. It could be a talent-spotting effort — hoping Saturday regulars might work out. Or maybe it’s just a way for a club that already has a local monopoly on its form of entertainment to diversify its customer base. Whichever — we’re fascinated, and, well, excited.
