Strip Clubs in Tampa Are Ready to Cash In on G.O.P. Convention
TAMPA, Fla. Over at the back door of the 2001 Odyssey, a limo-size tent with flaps especially designed for discretion and camera-shy guests is ready to go up. Dj Vu is welcoming extra talent from around the country in its V.I.P. rooms.

Angelina Spencer, the executive director of the Association of Club Executives, which serves as a trade association for strip clubs, said an informal survey of convention business in New York and Denver had determined that Republicans dropped more money at clubs, by far.

Hands down, it was Republicans, she said. The average was $150 for Republicans and $50 for Democrats.

As further evidence of the clubs nonpartisan appeal, Don Kleinhans, the owner of the 2001 Odyssey, said when the Promise Keepers, a male evangelical group, came to town years ago, business was rollicking.

We had phenomenal numbers all weekend, and they walked in wearing badges and name tags and werent shy at all, he said.
