In the Google reviews, this place is getting one star over n over. You can't disagree with any of the negative reviews. They are the honest truth from people.
Don't waste ur $ here. They take $25 at the door for a couple fat broads. Even with the free drafts from the keg it is still not worth it. There are better options.
Heidi? Anybody get a figure for HJ/BJ?
Was in Wed. nite. At least as many girls as customers (ok with me)!) The atmosphere was very laid back. The cover was a bit steep at $25, but included free drinks. The girls were pretty and one in particular, Heidi, was both friendly and hot! Overall, a nice place to see and interact with pretty and nude dancers.
There are so few strip clubs in the Pittsburgh area. It would be a shame to lose this one. The way they run this place is stupid. The Cricket has always had a ton of potential. The location is good. It could be a great place to go. This place could be jumping. If there are no plans to close the Cricket, I hope they bring in someone, who knows what they're doing, or sell it to the right people.
Did they lose their liquor license? I saw they're doing that $20 at the door, all you can drink stuff.
What happened to that phat ass liquor license?
What happen to that phat ass white girl nadia
This place fail because the cover charge so hi to get in. The dance price too hi. Drink price ok but nobody come for drink. Dancer not too many. No happy :-(
I came in here on Friday, there was like 12 customers all night. I think they had 4 dancers. It was $10 to get in, plus you pay for your drinks. This place was dark. You can't see what's on the stage until you get up to it. They got all the lights over the stage turned off except for these annoying green laser beams that hit you right in the eyes. Man, this place is bad. Somebody needs to get a clue.
Miss July 1995... WOOF! Tell me that ain't the finest looking Go-Go girl ever.
The Cricket needs to get some decent dancers. They're in the city, they should have little problem getting customers in here, there's just no excuse. They have a few pretty good dancers now, but aside from them it is a mix of uninteresting beginners, and weirdos. They better get it together or they might become a part of Baum Blvd history, like Joe's bar.
It had to be said.
Fuckin' A Jack. It's about time she someum new.
I believe Rikki is out in Cali doing porn vids.
Does Ricki Raxxx dance here anymore? Anybody know which club I can see her dance at in the Pittsburgh area?
Just to let everyone know Mp Creations is back open the new address is 2723 schenley rd youngstown, ohio 44509 We have deals going on for the holidays stop in and see us!
How many pedophiles live within a mile of the Cricket?
Why is it that every pizza that I try in Oakland are all not very good? All the pizza are thin cuts with no flavor at all, like eating a piece of a cardboard box. Where can I find a good pizza? I have already found the hot girls. The girls here are hot. they are hot! They are hot! I highly recommend the Cricket lounge.
Wait! The Cricket closed? That's three of the four strip clubs I used to live at gone. Chez Kimmy and Anthony's being the other two. And Tthe Edison was never the same after they stopped calling it "The Edison" and tried to make it something it could never be because it was so small.
"I hope we can one day all get back to the Cricket Lounge?" You mean in the afterlife? For an eternity? I don't know if I'm down with that. Sooner or later the machine will run out of pistachios.
I hope we can one day all get back to the Cricket Lounge and have lots of down and dirty fun. Too bad to see this place die, not sure what the current status is but a phone call might make sense.
Is the Cricket going to reopen, or are they done after 40-plus years?
It's a nice day to start again.
I am so sorry to have heard of the passing of Vivian the owner Of The Cricket. She was a wonderful woman and a really good owner. I havent been to the club in a long while but she will be missed by current and past patrons. Ill say a prayer for you Vivian.
I was saddened to learn of the passing of Vivian, the owner of the Cricket, and Anthony's Lounge (Now Closed). She should not be forgotten.
Quinn I didn't get to say goodbye...wish there was a way to contact you
Claire is gorgeous. Love her voluptuous/athletic hybrid body type... and her long wavy brown hair. Regret not getting a dance with her.
What are prices like here?
You need to go join the Blush touters.
Haha I'm bored and on the internet at 6am and stumbled across this. Thank you Mike! I'm Quinn at Blush now. :) Jasmine
There is no schedule posted on the website. Who is dancing here now? Is Nadia the brunette still there?
Was there last night and had a really nice time. Jasmine is amazing!
What's going on with the cricket site? It's down Is there another club page somewhere? I wanted to see the sched.
At the quick-it, it is kiss but don?t tell, especially if you are socially retarded.
Did you ever think that it might be a fat jealous lonely ass regular with big man tits who likes to dance in front of a mirror wearing women's underwear?
hahahahaha either a fat jealous dancer that felt competition against her or some lonely ass regular that didn't get extras.
Is this place even open ???
who are the dancers here now ?????
You must be broke! Don't ask me how I know.
This place sucks. Girls cant get away drom their sugar daddys, and those sugar daddys seem not to care wether they make money or not. Proof? Im here now!
I don?t work there or anything.. Just Saying, Every time I go in there, they only have like 3-4 dancers. Private dances there are $25 a song. Dancer gets $15. Dancers set their own room rates. As far as I know, they don?t allow extras. They have cameras in all the booths. The main problem with the place is that it is hit-or-miss. On any given night, it can be fairly busy, or dead empty. I think a big part of their problem is that they don?t have enough dancers. Customers come in, they don?t see many dancers, and they leave. At any rate, If you are ambitious, and you know how to hustle, you can make decent money there. They are open 7PM-2AM 6 days a week. Closed Sundays. You can call the bar for more Info ( 412) 683-9000
like why would you care? she is still disgustingly thin and she has a boyfriend. hes that creepy photographer with that magazine of his.
Whatever happened to Sabrina ???
The Cricket (Formerly the Mother's Lounge) will be open tonight at 7PM. Stop There!
Looks more like Brooklyn Decker, who was on the cover of the 2010 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue. But, you had me fooled for a while, there. I thought that was Megan, before her tits shrunk down into man boobs.
here is a pic of me when I was young kiss kiss my ass !!
No on both accounts. Check out the photos on the cricket facebook.
Why no updated schedule ? And how about posting photos of dancers that actually work there.
Is the Cali dancer the tall thin blonde who worked at Blush & Silky's? Is the Rayne the sexy brunette that worked at the Tennyson?
Is this place even open
Yo I was sittin in the crib wit my girl watchin a movie n thinking bout hittin up the cricket later yo when dis Blush commercial come on. So I was at Blush yo chattin up this shawty when my babys mama call and tell me my probation officer was tryin to call me like 2 wks ago. Ain?t that some shit??
Well, it's like they say... you pays your money and you takes your chance. They don't all dance that way. The club is empty, most nights, because they never advertise.
There's a dancer here called "Rayne". She is a total scam. BEWARE! Her lap dances are like her dancing 3 feet away from you!! I have visited numerous strip clubs, but never seen a dancer perpetrate such a scam. As I kept calling her close, she kept on asking me to just relax and enjoy the dance!! What bull crap! As for the rest of the review, stopped by after a long time on a Saturday night. There were about 6 dancers, but most of them were really talking to customers or anything. Nohing special. Very slow for a Saturday. Most dancers talk mostly to their regulars, its more like a neighborhood bar with a few strippers hanging out.
Its been a few years since I've stopped in. Does slim leggy brunette Jaelynn ever dance here anymore? zigzag armband tatt on upper right arm, way cool girl. Zac
How is this place for extras?? Are the vips worth it?
Where do you suppose they went? What about Katie?
No Naudia or Mary Jane this week ?????
I am guessing that she passed out somewhere from malnutrition and that she is now in the hospital. Either that or her family intervened. The ones that have a support group are lucky. But.. you would really rather have her there dancing, "Jiminy Cricket"?
What happened to Sabrina ??? She's no longer on the schedule...wtf
One thing is for sure, Brittney didn't eat her way to that butt on a Cricket income. The Cricket gets so slow that I would not be surprised if there are girls surviving off of scraps from the Chipotle dumpster, and Wendy's ketchup packets.
"I dont know about anyone else but has ANYONE seen sabrina?" What a sorry excuse for a human being you are! Have you no compassion? Yes, I have seen Sabrina. Sometimes she disappears behind the pole, momentarily. Only the people on the other side of the stage can see her. If you would just shut up and learn how to exercise a little patience, she will eventually come back into view.
I dont know about anyone else but has ANYONE seen sabrina? She lost over 30 pounds in the past couple months. DISGUSTING You can see her ribs and her butt goes IN. NOTHING ABOUT HER IS ATTRACTIVE. Id rather look at brittanys cottage cheese butt then skin and bones sabrina. Skeleton girl
Yes, that is correct. it is the same Naudia. Also, the Nadia that used to dance at Rumorz is now at Blush. And, the Nadia that used to dance at Blush is now at Cheerleaders.
Yes Mike M this is the same Nadia that used to dance at Beemers.
I heard she's back on occasion. She worked there for over 3years. Young, sexy, sweet. Anyone know if this is true? She's my all time favorite so sensual and seductive.
I see Naudia on the schedule. Is that the same girl that danced at Beemers ? Dark hair...30ish...Tattoos all over..Naudia was her name there...thanx.
It happened last week. This fat dancer that was working at the Cricket as Alysha copped some heroine in stamp bags that were labeled Theraflu. She shot up in the club and passed out. Her eyes rolled back in her head. It looked like she was dead. Lucky for her the paramedics showed up in time and were able to revive her. Stamp bags labeled Theraflu and Bud Ice contained heroin that was laced with high amounts of fentanyl. 22 people have died from it already. Alisha (Also Known As Victoria) is well known for extras as well as being an escort and prostitute that has her pictures posted all over the web. Because she copped the stamp bags labeled Theraflu in the club, the cops are investigating and looking for the dope dealers.
Independent review is on the money. The lack of interest and attention goes beyond the dancers - the bar staff, DJ and security (if they have any - last time I went there wasn't even a bouncer) are just simply not interested in customer service. I appreciate when dancers aren't aggressive about dances etc., but you expect them to at least be personable and assertive. I don't mean to slam the girls - many of them are quite attractive and good dancers. But often it seems like the customers may as well not even be there.
What is with this place? Every time I go in there, they only have like 4 or 5 dancers, and a handful of customers, even on weekends. The money is not steady for the girls, so they can't keep the really good dancers there for long. The ones that stick around are not interesting at all and they seem either too shy, or too conceited to mingle with the customers, much. The private rooms are nothing more than a couch with a curtain around it. What?s even more ridicules is that the dancers set their own prices for their rooms. And they set their prices as high, or higher than other area clubs charge for full champagne rooms. This club has little to offer, and is not in touch with its customer base.
If your looking for Vixen/Kennedy who danced at Beemers she is at The Penthouse Club now.
Hey guys, thanks for the help. Oh well about vixen/Kennedy. I always liked her. Thanks again guys.
I know both of those Vixens (ha-ha). The one from Beemers was in their Ads and was pretty well known as Vixen. She was gone for a while, then she came back to dancing, using Kennedy. Why would she go back to using that name when she was known as Vixen. She must have been trying to keep a low profile. I'm thinking that she has legal issues and that she might be back in the slammer.
I looked at the Beemers website and no that is not the same one that is back at Erotica. Different girl.
I never really thought of her as goth (if we're thinking of the same girl). She had tattoo's, but usually just had curly blonde hair. She was a tiny girl with a breast job that fit her body. I think there's a picture of her on the beemers website(which is never updated). But thanks for the reply. I'll have to stop into erotica to see if she's there.
Was she goth? Usually wears her hair kind of short, with pink, or purple highlights? Always wears boots? Has tats? If so, she was back at Erotica.
I was wondering if anyone could help me out. i've been looking for a dancer. she used to dance at beemers and went by the name vixen and then kennedy for a little while. does anybody know if she is still dancing anywhere? any help would be greatly appreciated.
does anyone know if Skylar is working at the cricket i heard she was if so watch out she has a std she was working at the body shop until she got a std and couldn't bring papers saying she was clean and i know clubs don't have girls checked or show papers saying they don't have anything when they start like they should or it should be a law for the clubs to since the clubs won't do it on their own to protect their workers or customers.
What's up with this reunion party at the Cricket on Nov 30th? It sounds like it's just for the former employees, which excludes the former dancers and all those annoying customers. Is it just going to be Gina and MJ sitting at the bar, drinking Patron all night, giving everybody mean looks?
are never amateurs. Some times an actual new girl enters, but usually it's just dancers from other clubs who win. Real new dancers aren't confident enough for a contest, especially when they see their experienced competition doing pole tricks and shmoozing with customers like pros, so they usually go on the club's audition nights when there's less pressure.
how can an experienced stripper enter a " blowout" amateur contest. Beemers sucks anyways. nothing but drug addict hos....worst club in Pittsburgh area
Why are you asking about this amateur contest on the Cricket list? Why don't you ask on the Beemers list?
What's up with this blowout amateur contest at Beemers on the 27th? Sabrina asked me to come show my support for her. Anyone else planning on going?
"Anyone know if Dylan still works there?" Dylan is dancing at the Penthouse Club
What happened to Kharma?
I'm guessing someone had a little trouble getting into their skinny jeans today? I saw Sabrina a few nights ago and she looked amazing as always. Very sweet girl too. They have a nice line up of dancers right now
She don't look like that no more. She is down to like 80 lbs now. She either got a serious case of bulimia or she got a full blown addiction to something.
What's the scoop on Sabrina ? Her photo looks good. Do I make a special trip in to see her ?
Anyone know if Dylan still works there? Haven't been to Cricket in months (or seen her name on the last several schedules) but always thought she was one of the best dancers there. Pretty girl and very cool down-to-earth personality.
You mean the one with the dancer porn?
Does anybody know the website for online access to the Cricket
I was wondering if this club has a dancer that either goes by the stage name of Tess or Eve. She has short hair and alot of tatts and darker complected possibly Italian or greek . If anybody knows which club she is at please post it on the network. She was awesome to talk to and I haven't been able to locate her.
Who is the the blonde with curly hair. She also is a little thick. How are the dances? Thanks for the info
I saw the Harlem shake vid. Is that Chloe at the bar, in glasses, the one facing the camera? The dude starting the dance at the beginning seems kinda lame, like he's not into it.
Oh! Is this place still open?
You're ancient history.
That's ancient history.
Some of the gals at Cricket Lounge made a Harlem Shake video. If you don't know what that is, just Google it and crawl out from under your rock. On YouTube the Cricket's video is named Cricket Lounge Harlem Shake Pittsburgh strip club. There is also a version done by Club Erotica that is pretty good. When will Cheerleaders get one?
What happened to my favorite dancer Chloe? Pics are still on the site but shes never on the schedule anymore. Without her dancing is there any reason to go to this place? Any friendly dancers there?
Yeah. No kidding. I was in there a few weeks ago and a dancer wanted $400 for a room. I could get like a three hour room at The Filly Corral for $400.
UPMC is in the midst of a massive expansion to its Shadyside works. For years, they have been gobbling up properties on, and around Baum Blvd, turning a once thriving thoroughfare into a series of closed-down buildings. The plan is to turn that whole area into a UPMC city, with medical, and research Bldgs, along with parking facilities for their employees. UPMC paid a whopping $10-million for Paper mart (The Old Ford Bldg), across the street from the Cricket. With UPMC shelling out hundreds of millions on properties, renovation, and new construction, how long before they decide to pay big bucks for that little nuisance of a strip club across the street in order to put up some doctor's offices, or something?
Looks like Boston had no choice but to go away.
Puck you Boston Now go away.
There is nothing more Manley than eating baked beans, and washing it down with some delicious tea, I can assure you that. Your stripped down steelers are no threat to anyone. Big Ben is still a RAPISTBURGER Now go turn in your hard hat at the gay steel mill, you village people leftovers.
I see the Boston Troller is back for more abuse. How pathetic.. Gay steel mills?.. huh? Well, those are strong words from somebody that comes from a town, which is known for tea parties, and baked beans. I'll tell you that. Nonetheless, we'll be coming back to visit the Brady Bunch and break up your little gala on November 3rd. Until then, may the ghost of Babe Ruth take a giant shit on your head.
Normal like your qb.........Ben RAPISTBURGER Your puffins got dominated..........owned by the BRUINS now back to the gay steel mill bitch Ha ha ha
That's what happens when a bomb goes off near your head. I hope you return to normal some day.
Crickets.........that's all you hear now in Pittsburg . Go BRUINS
Not sure, I think it is Brittany or Blonde. She is thick with a pretty face. Saw her two weeks ago but had to leave. Just curious. Other dancer told me her name was amber but maybe I am wrong.
Amber? What does she look like? Blonde? Brunette? Redhead? Does she dance at the Cricket? Is Amber a stage name or is that her given name?
Do you know a dancer name Amber and if so, how are her dances?
Where did you see pictures of the dancers
What's the scoop on Sabrina ? Her photos are smokin hot. Im kinda glad Tara and those ugly stretch marks left.
If you want to become a successful stripper, with a big fat wad of bills in each hand, you must drink plenty of Milk! No one wants to hear about your lactose intolerance. Just drink Milk!
Is Kelly the one with the huge natural knockers?
I heard she's making a comeback !
Pretty, pleasant, professional dancers will never work here. This club has NO security. We'll put up with making less money or working at a smaller club, if it's pleasant and SAFE. Customers can do whatever they want to the dancers and there isn't even a bouncer to ask them to stop touching us, grabbing us onstage, taking pictures with their cell phone cameras, etc. No one wants to walk to their car alone at the end of the night in Oakland. It's completely unsafe. Christian doesn't count because he won't step up, even if a dancer is in danger. Find better clubs, Cricket dancers! You'll make more money and be treated much better.
Good points, Joe, But: You have to keep in mind that these are strip club customers and the ones at the Cricket are better behaved than they are at some of the other clubs. The reason being that the Cricket has stricter rules about contact between customers, and dancers on the floor & at the stage. All strip club customers can be loud, and obnoxious, but at the Cricket, they are not coming up to dancers, groping, and taking liberties. I don't think the Cricket customers are stingy. The Cricket is not in the same league as clubs like Blush, Cheerleaders, and Club Erotica, but their dance/room prices don't reflect that.
After being friends with several dancers over the years, I can tell you the 2 reasons these places don't have prettier dancers. First, both the managers and a certain number of customers treat the dancers with no respect. They are pretty much treated like bimbos and whores. A girl is going to have to pull in serious $ to put up with this. But that doesn't happen either. People in this area are stingy when it comes to tips and buying LD and rooms, even when the women are hot. No respect and no money, and you see what comes though the door looking for a job.
Nine out of ten customers would agree that they need to get rid of dancers like Tara and Brittney. Dancers like that make the club look bad. Customers walk out and do not come back. I mean come on!... you got this big chubby girl, with stretch marks and sagging tits, prancing around on stage in a skimpy school girl skirt, waiving a ruler at the customers. How fucking odd is that?? Why do they keep girls like that? They must really be desperate for dancers here. Girls like that have got to be doing extras in the rooms in order to make any money at all here. They let them get away with it. They are going to get caught.
she prolly was not eking out much $ there cuz the competition was too much for her. she was left for the bottom feeder. u might wanna try pink or tennyson or somewhere like that.
Whatever happened to Tara ?.....Nice Boobs but bad stretch marks. Still A-Ok
What's behind black curtain number 1, number 2, and number 3?
Creeper. Not creaper. Stupid stripper.
I often thought that the Cricket would benefit by upgrading the private rooms, where customers by more than just dances. Of course, there are other risks that go along with doing that.
If the Cricket wants to get more customers through the door, they need to advertise. If they can put together a budget to do on-going radio spots, customers would discover the place, and continue to come in, even if they ended the radio Ads after a while. There is no need to do what Cheerleaders does, running a radio Ad every 1/2 hour. With the exception of adult oriented publications, print Ads aren't very effective for clubs. They're still good for pizza joints that print coupons, but with smart phones, and Internet, nobody looks for nightlife in the newspapers anymore. Once customers are in there, they can better see what other changes need to be made.
I can not disagree more. Those bartenders that work there are rude and ignorant. They are not all that much to look at either.
The Cricket needs some improvements...hire some more appealing dancers. Advertise...it's hard to exist and compete when no one knows about your club. The best thing about the club currently is the bartenders....couple of friendly, good looking girls. They actually look better than most of the dancers.
Anyone know where Victoria is dancing?
If you are talking about who I think you are, I doubt she let him go all the way. If anything, it was probably a quick HJ. But more than likely, it was just letting him grope and suck face.
Is that the one that had sex with that retarded guy all the time????
What happened to the voluptuous Kelly? DD phat ass , great body , pretty eyes .. Great private dances .. Where is she now????
Is Miley still working here?
Does brunette Diamond from Cheerleaders dance here?
If you don't know what a retardate is, it is prolly because you are one. Sorry, It is not "something you put on the wheels of your care to go slower?" "Prolly" is an abbreviation for probably. But in your case, it is more like likely.
It is prolly better that you don't know.
re:lol Care to explain to us what a 'retardate' is? Is it something you put on the wheels of your care to go slower? And who is prolly? If English is not your first language, there are ESL classes available to help you before you post again.
She prolly got sick of the retardates at the cricket. Can you blame her?
Does anyone know if Sadie is dancing at another club?
How is cricket for mileage in the rooms? I go in there and I see the same guys going up the steps with the same girls all the time. The ones that buy more than just a couple dances at a time up there got to be getting their moneys worth-Hjs Bjs and who knows. And I heard that they will meet you after they get off work. I got a couple names but any recommendations would be appreciated thanks
Q - What can you conclude about a club that lets a pig pay for extras every night? A - Nobody cares if he squeals.
I see Diamond is on the websire as a dancer. Is this the same girl who worked at Cheerleaders? Medium build, brunette, tat on lower back, always playing with her hair? Cheers.
I know what u did plumber j
It is not the same Phoenix that was at the Cricket 2 years ago. This Phoenix just started dancing, recently.
The Bella that worked here has been gone for a while now. I haven't seen her at any other clubs in the area.
Thanks man.. Is the Phoenix you talk about of short height??? Anyone know where Bella went ???
Saw the one that works here. She has shoulder length dark hair, smaller boobs, but a nice ass and nice legs.
I just saw Phoenix in the schedule on cricket website. Is this the same Phoenix that used to work here 2 years ago??? Answer will be appreciated guys..
is bell girl working there still? have not been there in a year. Also does she give good lapdances (good contact stuff like that?) if not her whom else?
Monday through Saturday, 7PM to 2AM Asia retired, though. So did Pebbles.
Is this place even open any more ? No more Website and nobody answers the phone.
Her real name is Maria. She moved back to her hometown and settled down. Congrats to her for getting out of such a bullshit business. The Dancers at the Cricket and Anthony's back in the day were ten thousand times better than the trash in there now BTW. Customers weren't a fraction as creepy either.
i here all this talk about this dancers and that one.. blaaaa chloe from years back is and was the best dancer ever to walk in there..to bad no 1 can find her or facebook her to tell her to come back she just a legend now.
"i will reimburse airfare.." That's a big mistake. You need to pay the airfare upfront. You want the girl to put out the money for airfare with just a promise of repayment? Good luck with that. "..an attractive young lady who is extraverted and outgoing but can also chill and just relax." So, this is a working vacation for her and you are not going to compensate her with anything other than a free vacation with you? Too funny. Some of these girls make 500-$1000 a night. Do you really think they are going to lose pay to be with you for just free vacation? Ha-Ha-Ha Get at least several thousand $ together and call an escort.
Let's not beat around the bush......um... no pun intended - The Cricket is a classic local/dive strip club. Growing up I would drive by and wonder what kind of person actually hung out in an establishment like the Cricket.Last Saturday, I was that person.Well, it was for a bachelor party, but pretty safe to say I will be returning at some point or another. Why? Mostly due to no Cover (We got there around 9/930), and well priced beer and shots.The interior was nicer than expected which was quite a shock. The Cricket has a very simple layout but was clean and not toooooo tacky (Okay, there's a moving neon light of a woman cracking a whip above the stage).The entertainment was.... about what you expect for a local inner city strip club.Long live Ricki Raxxx!!
Plumber jon is a bitch ass snitch creeper, no one likes him and he is a big racist who needs to take his moms nipple out of his mouth and fly the coop, bartenders and dancers hate him and cant stand the creepy way he looks at them!!!!
Thanks Michelle. You deserve a reward from everyone for your effort. The council woman is a real politician. She wants to play the role of a hardliner, and get her name in the news, ultimately winning some votes for the next election. Hopefully, there is a compromise and most, or all of her restrictions get thrown out.
I met with the council woman today and was pleasantly surprised. She seemed genuinely interested in my points and confirmed that the proposed changes are still being revised. Who knows if it helped anything, but I felt like I needed to try.
All in all, I think some of the proposed legislation, some of which was already under consideration, might get through city council. The zoning regulations were already on the table. Many of the proposed, in-club regulations may get shot down after it is all said, and done. But ultimately, I think the City will opt for a compromised package of rules. There is not much of a chance that they are going to leave things alone.
I agree with the comment below. I think I saw her husband at one of the clubs, somewhere.. groping a dancer!
The bitch proposing these new rules needs to keep her nose out of the adult industry and let us make our money. She probably on a tirade because she's fat and old and her hubby won't fuck her anymore.
Actually I can see the argument for banning lap dances, but I'm against the current proposed legislation. Obviously it would be great if I could make the same money and not do them, but unless they were banned nation wide (and someone could figure out a way to enforce the ban) the customers and money would go to clubs where they could pay the same and touch or be touched. Meaning you wouldn't have to do them, but you would only make your stage money... and eventually nothing when the downtown clubs go under.
I think banning full contact lap dancing would be awesome. None of us really enjoy being groped by total strangers.
Registering dancers like sex offenders would have zero positive outcomes and a ton of negative ones: women with criminal records would just move to other clubs (or work dangerous outcall jobs), dancers in the registry would never be able to get out of the industry (I never would have gotten my "real job" if I was on public record as a stripper), and dancers would be vulnerable to stalking and harassment. It's a horrible, insulting and dangerous idea.
This legislation proposes that strip club employees, along with dancers must undergo a police background check. It states that in order to obtain a license, dancers must submit to the government their full name, home address, fingerprints, a photograph, and a description of any tattoos. I know they do this in other parts of the country, but it seems to be a violation of civil liberties.
According to an article in the City Paper, the proposed legislation would repeal full-nudity within the City of Pittsburgh, forcing dancers to wear pasties, and g-strings at all times. It would also outlaw lap-dancing, and all private dance areas within the club. Private booths, and rooms would have to be openly visible. The height of stages would be strictly regulated, and customers would have to keep their distance from the dancers, while on stage, eliminating stage tipping all together. It is a plan that would destroy the adult entertainment industry in Pittsburgh.
Like most "Mommy State" regulation, it's a time and money waster. I love that a stripper registry will help with street mugging somehow. Are there a lot of guys being attacked in dark alleys by hordes of attractive young ladies in body glitter? I'm pretty sure that would have been in the news "They knocked me out with their Victoria's Secret body spray!" "All we have to go on are self tanner butt prints, good thing we have this registry!"
If passed, those strict regulations that they will impose on the clubs will be very difficult, and costly to enforce. A large amount of city tax dollars will have to be allocated for use on a problem that is not really a problem at all. Crime on the streets is a problem. Pot-holes in the roads are a problem. Putting food on the table is a problem. Tax payers should understand that the money has to come from somewhere.
Ha ha! That's not necessary! Just support our right to make an honest, safe and legal living... by enjoying sexy naked ladies! Everyone wins! Well, everyone except for fake feminists who want to limit and judge other women... and politicians who see strip clubs as easy targets for "family values" and "public safety" campaigns.
Thank you, on behalf of all of us. Can I buy you a car, or something?
Cricket Bad.. Cricket Hood.. Parts of the Cricket made of wood. Pretty fresh, huh?
F U dilrod. everybody here is cool cept 4 losers like you.
G, go back to elementary school before you attempt to defend this place.
I live in Bloomfield & go to Cricket all the time. Take the dillrod out of your ass befor you call somebodya sex offender &the dancers there aint all bad.
The Cricket still smells like shit and the girls are shit too. The customers are beside the point everyone knows only sex offenders and weirdos go in there.
With a name like Shit, you must be missing the smell of the old Cricket.. "back in the day"
the cricket is a shithole. it used to be good back in the day before that cunt vivian took over. go back to the old days of anthony's and the cricket please? And please, lose the freakaziod, megans law lookin mother fuckers in there. Especially the weirdy mustache ones.
So.. Anything new, and exciting at The Cricket?
The cricket rocks!
Back to Errotica we go, eh.
Marley is now at Club Erotica.
You know what pisses me off.. It is hard to find a good old Americanized, Classic Italian dish anymore. You go to these chain restaurants, like Olive Garden, and they serve these California yuppie dishes, with penne rigate, or bowtie pasta. Get the fuck outta here with that! I want a big dish of Rigatoni, with a thick tomato sauce, or wonder foods, like Baked Manicotti, and Lasagna. And, I want two girls, full service.
Did Bella quit as well? They are dropping like flies.
do pay phones still exist???
From the Cricket, where is the nearest pay phone?
What happened to Kharma, Harley, Marley, & Katie? Anybody know? Did they get swept away in a tsunami er what?
What's Classy? Aren't they the strippers that are more adept at taking a man's money while giving him as little in return as possible.
re: reply " if the girls are crying about the new rules then they are just whores." I mostly agree with you. I also like the classy dancers who don't grab your crotch. But I did like it when dancers leaned over to talk to me or brush their hair against me. I didn't consider that trashy. I think a better rule would be "No grabbing or biting someone's crotch." Classy dancers get my respect.
There were at least 2 girls I can remember that did a lot of dick grabbing and they were the trashier ones. Some guys don't mind that kind of thing but I liked the few girls who were classy and sexy enough to not have to do that and still get just as much attention as the dick grabbing whore. I think if the girls are crying about the new rules then they are just whores that don't know any other way to be than nasty!
The dancers I have talked to don't like the rules. As far as I know there was only one dancer who grabbed dicks which suggests another solution.
The new rules suck. I always liked it when the dancers leaned over and brushed their hair over my lap. OK, biting the retard might have been a bit much for some people, (I would have laughed. I enjoy stupid customer reactions). But they could have made a 'no biting' rule instead. Plus, I love the view when a dancer across the stage leans over the rails. You can usually see everything and that's just beautiful!
It is nice to see that they have changed the stage-dancing rules at the Cricket. Dancers are no longer aloud to lean over the stage and do all kinds of funky shit to the customers during tipping. I once witnessed this dancer lean over the stage and bite a seated customer's dick. To say the least, this customer looked like he belonged on the short bus. He made this face, and let out a moan like a dog that was dragging his nut sack across the carpet. I don't need to see that shit.
Customers at the Cricket? What customers?
What is it with the customers at the Cricket? They all look like they belong on the Megans Law website. No doubt some are. Stripclubbers in general are just creepy but the ones here are down right scary. There are some who go there every night. How can life be so meaningless that one feels the need to be in that shit hole everynight? Plz, kill yourselves and make room for real people.
