    Default Washington DC

    Once every few years I need to remind myself why I normally don't go clubbing when I visit DC. The other night was a great refresher. I hopped around a few downtown clubs and the two words that come to mind are expensive and boring.

    The girls do their stage shows, move around for a tip walk, rinse, repeat. My game does not play well there for several reasons...

    Not only are the clubs strict, but there is already a lot of money chasing a limited supply of girls. Camelot and Archibald were packed with suits and I saw a few girls easily picking up over a hundred dollars in singles during each stage set and, of course, this does not include whatever else that some more enterprising guys were slipping them. I have no doubt that many of the girls walked out with bank rolls that night. Hell, even at Royale Palace, which is a seedier, more downscale club, the better looking girls were doing quite well.

    Net-net, even if there was an attractive OTC option, I doubt that a few hundred was going to be anywhere close to enough.

    Now girls do sometimes stop to spend time with regulars and some others, but I have yet to fully grasp how the system works as there are no lap dances or VIP in DC. I had a couple of girls sit with me at one club, and I tipped them for time, but I will admit to being clueless about what the expectations were for this.

    Lesson learned - again.

    I have no first-hand experience in DC but I know that escorting is really risky down there as well right now. he last time I worked there was quite a few years ago. I remember a couple of local guys I was working with saying the clubs were lame...

    Yeah, my experience after 4 regular years travelling to DC was to just forget downtown DC. There were a few interesting clubs in NoVA, but nothing really worth writing home about. Met a really great girl at one of them and still keep in touch with her. Its just as bad as Orlando, FL.

    My experience was that hitting the road to baltimore was a better investment than trying to go out in DC.
    Have we not heard the chimes at midnight?

    Once more, unto the breach, dear friends.

    If you prick us do we not bleed? If you tickle us do we not laugh? If you poison us do we not die? And if you wrong us, shall we not revenge?

    Lame is an accurate description. It is amazing, however, how well the downtown clubs seem to do. Never have I gone into Camelot or Archibald and found them anywhere close to empty. IMO this is what happens when you mix scarce supply with lots of guys with $$$ to spend - some of them settle for whatever is at hand. I have actually seen this phenomenon at clubs in eastern MA as well.

    Agreed. Unfortunately I had some time constraints on that visit, but I've had some good times in Baltimore over the years and try to visit whenever I'm in the vicinity.

    I found that doing nothing in DC was preferred over the clubs in DC. There are some clubs outside of downtown DC, but it can be hassle.

    Also, while I have no interest in p4p, Camelot at one time did provide "management approved" p4p. Same at Crystal City Restaurant. It was offered up by more than one of the people working there. Have no idea if it was serious, a scam, or what.

    Made it to Baltimore a couple of times. It was ok. There are other clubs besides the Block clubs. Was contacted by DM by one of the girls at a club outside of Baltimore. Will try it when/if I get back up there.

    It's always been that way in Boston area clubs. Even though Providence is less than an hour away most visitors don't have transportation and even a lot of locals don't want to drive.

    Contact is relative. The few Mass clubs just outside of Boston that offer a bit of one-way contact do very well because that minimal contact is so much more than what guys are used to. Even going back to the old "Combat Zone" days.

    Being a guy who is used to driving to find good clubs I can remember the first time I worked in Orlando many years ago. The bellman at the hotel told us that the clubs in Tampa were much better. We couldn't get to the car rental counter fast enough!

    Absolutely, Baltimore is by far a better choice if you can make the drive.
