(Brandon, FL/ A Entertainment News) - In a week filled with superstars and celebrities Tampa Bay is in a buzz for the Superbowl week. The area also boasts 43 strip clubs and they are doing everything they can do to grab some of the super attention that is in the area. Booking a top named feature for your club is one way to get that attention. The Déjà vu Showgirls did just that with former Wicked Pictures contract star Carmen Hart.
The A Crew made its way over to Brandon, which is a suburb of Tampa on Thursday night to see just how things were going at the Deja Vu. Earlier in the night we stood in the Florida rain to catch the red carpet at the P Ditty sponsored celebrity party in Clearwater.
I arrived at the Déjà vu around 12:30 AM to catch the 2 am show with Heart. It was good to see some of my old friends from my tenure at the same club years ago. The biggest surprise was the fact that some of the people were still there. In an industry of ever changing faces, you never know how long someone will stay in one spot.
Ice, who is now the General Manager of the club has been a friend for a long time and he took care of us once he arrived from his scouting tour of the areas hot spots. They take a ride around town each night and just check on the mood and progress of the night. Gabe who was one of the DJs at the club when I worked there was the DJ for the night. Sometimes the more things change, the more they stay the same.
Carmen Hart has a reputation for being a super high energy dancer and on this rainy night in Florida she did not do one thing to diminish that reputation. As Carmen hit the stage the large crew of dancers in the building seemed to be doing all of the cheering, or maybe they were just the loudest of the groups.
If you become friends with a feature dancer you also become a prime target for the embarrassing, "pull your friend on the stage and dance all over him/her move". Well you may have guessed I got the royal treatment from our wild child. It's all in the spirit of the show, but it sure is a strange feeling lying on your back in front of a room of people while your porn star proceeds to rub you in all the places that make you not want to stand back up after she is done. Ok, it was fun and I liked it, there is your confession for the day.
The audience size in the club was not what I had expected; in fact this entire super week in Tampa Bay has not been the mass of bodies I had expected. There are a few really good events going on but there is a big drop off of crowds besides that. The last time the Superbowl was in Tampa you could not even go to the grocery store or a gas station because it was so packed with people. It seems to just be a sign of the times.
I have to give a big thank you the sexy Carmen Hart and the entire staff at the Déjà vu for giving us a good time. I had a touch of the Déjà vu while I was there and I had a "Those Were Fun Days" feeling as I was in the club.
