Just heard about a devastating fire in a dance club in West Warwick RI this morning. 100 people dead. This is on the heals of the tragedy in Chicago where 30 people died trying to escape a dance club where mace was sprayed. For those of us who go to clubs on a regular basis it is important to know where the exits are. Please guys and ladies, before you settle in for a great night of entertainment, look around, and familiarize yourself with the layout of the club, especially the exits. The life you save may be your own.
Rock on – Stay safe 8)

Good advice. Just hope the fire exits are not locked or blocked.

One thing to point out about the RI tragedy. Many of the people who died were crushed trying to get out the front entrance because that was the only exit that they knew about.

While the likelihood of this happening at a strip club isn't near as great as a show where pyrotechics are used (and clearly shouldn't have been), be aware that many strip clubs (even nice ones) are composed of the same flammable ramshackle construction materials and that if a fire were to break out (kitchen, wiring, arson, etc.) that a fire CAN spread horrifically fast. In an environment that is already dark and often filled with mirrored walls, finding your way out can be difficult.

KNOW where those lesser known back exits are and if you're not sure where, ask the club management.

How many times have I seen some guy knock down the candles on the table or seen cigarette (sp?) butts on the floor.

Not to mention, if your in a club with Carlos and Bridgette is dancing, Carlos is likely to spontaneously CUMbust at any moment. So be careful, know where the exits are ;D
