Paper or plastic? For years the question was a grocery store mantra, but recently it seems everyone’s stopped asking. Except Cathouse. Tonight the loungerie poses the classic inquiry to local ladies, who can work their feminine wiles and a little shameless self-promotion to compete for paper or plastic - $2,500 in cash or $4,500 in plastic surgery, performed by well-known plastic surgeon Dr. Samir Pancholi, who was recently featured in The New York Times.
Here’s how the contest works: Male patrons will be given “food stamps” that they can award to female contestants throughout the evening at their own discretion. At the end of the night the competitor with the most stamps is declared the winner and gets to pick her prize. Sure, the implications of asking women to dance, flirt and fawn for “food stamps” are a little questionable, but this is Vegas and when the house lights come up it’s a lady who’ll walk away with the valuable goodies while the fellows will be left with just fond memories. The contest begins at 10:30 p.m. and the winner will be announced at 2 a.m.
Scoring the stamps might be tricky, but it’s the question of which prize to choose that could present the biggest dilemma. Before you choose paper over plastic, consider some recent advice given to me by a fashionable, much older man from L.A. as we sat in a cushiony Playboy Club booth: A pair of silicone Ds could change your life!
