Best Strip Joint

The Crazy Russian

Jess Harvellski

Ever since Baltimore city went all-nude, we've seen the sense of play drain out of many of our finer live adult entertainment establishments, and we've found something scant minutes across the county line in Rosedale, USA, that puts a smile back on our face along with that tingle in other regions. Sure, totally naked chicks are good times, but not everybody goes to strip joints just to nurse a beer and stare like Manson at a woman's genitalia. We want to take a party crowd out, gentlemen and ladies, for some light, naughty fun, and the Crazy Russian is a pasties and G-string joint, a throwback to burlesque and the concept of leaving something to the imagination. Guys, think of this place as a gateway strip joint to ease your lady into the whole concept before you take her to the Ritz or Scores. Drinks are reasonable (for a strip joint), and the dancers at chez Cray-Cray dress up in sexy (or kinda just plain crazy) outfits in order to peel 'em off--as in strip--which is not something the ladies at the vaginatastic clubs do much. Valeria, the Crazy Russian hostess with the mostess, urges attending the Friday evening revue replete with props and scenes, all set to the random and inexplicable musical tastes of the performers, who choose numbers on the employees-only jukebox.
