Strip club to reward Vegas Golden Knights with free lap dances for life if they win the Stanley Cup
The Larry Flynt’s Hustler Club in Las Vegas is offering the Vegas Golden Knights platinum VIP membership access and lifetime lap dances for free if they win the Stanley Cup.
The NHL team will begin the series at home with Game 1 against the Florida Panthers starting 8 p.m. EDT Saturday.
The strip club is only minutes away from the Golden Knights’ home ice at T-Mobile Arena. While the club’s name is shared by other venues nationwide, each club is independently owned and operated.
“The success of the Vegas Golden Knights has played an integral role in boosting our community’s morale. As the first professional sports team to debut in Las Vegas, we decided to show our support by extending free lap dances for life,” Brittany Rose, general manager of the club, said in a statement to KVVU-TV.
The Golden Knights were the top seed in the NHL’s Western Conference heading into the playoffs, and the fifth-best team in the league during the regular season.
On their way back to the Stanley Cup Finals, the Golden Knights knocked off the Winnipeg Jets in five games, Connor McDavid and the Edmonton Oilers in six, and the Dallas Stars, headed by their former coach Pete DeBoer, in six.
Their opponents for the Stanley Cup, the Florida Panthers, were an eighth-seeded wild card in the NHL’s Eastern Conference.
The Panthers upset the league-best Boston Bruins, who had set the record for best regular season with 132 points overall, in the opening round after going down three games to one.
After that, the Panthers only needed five games to vanquish the Toronto Maple Leafs, the fourth-best team in the league, followed up by a sweep of the second-in-the-league Carolina Hurricanes that included a marathon match with four, nearly five, overtimes in Game 1 of the Eastern Conference Finals.
Although only the Golden Knights have been promised lap dances for life, both teams are playing to win their first Stanley Cup, each team having been to the final previously, only to lose.
The Panthers were swept by the Colorado Avalanche in the 1995-1996 Stanley Cup Finals, while the Golden Knights reached the final in their inaugural 2017-2018 season, losing to Alexander Ovechkin and the Washington Capitals in five games.
The Golden Knights also have the chance to vindicate their owner Bill Foley, who predicted in 2016 that the future team would win a Stanley Cup within six years of its existence. The 2022-2023 season is the team’s sixth.
