What started out as casual fodder in the editorial room eventually took shape as this blog. During innocent holiday-related conversation, we somehow got on the topic whether or not strip clubs were open on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day.
Eventually, curiosity got the best of me.
A few phone calls and Facebook messages later, I am able to answer the question. Some strip clubs are open, but not all, and those that are open have limited hours.
Granted, most may not equate Christmas with strippers, but then again, some might. Who am I to judge? In fact, "College" Dave Mikolajek, an OnMilwaukee.com contributor, spent some time at a strip club on Christmas and shares a memory.
"Her name was Vicky. It was a long time ago. She danced to 'Santa baby, hurry down the chimney tonight' and after the set she walked around the crowd for tips while singing 'ho, ho, ho' and handing out candy canes," says Mikolajek.
In case you wanted to stuff some sass into your Christmas, or if you're just curious about strip club holiday hours like I was, here are my findings.

(I was particularly fond of the phone conversation I had with the man who answered the phone at Solid Gold. After he gave me the holiday hours, I asked if there was anything "special" going on for Christmas Eve. "Just strippers!" he replied.)
