It has been my long-held belief that one of Dallas’ draws for conventioneers is its upscale topless bars. Don’t believe me. Educate yourself. So I asked Michael Precker, PR man for the Lodge, whether anyone from the recently concluded Professional Convention Management Association’s convention made it out for a lap dance or three. He wasn’t in town this past weekend and can’t say for certain whether anyone from the PCMA dropped by, but he did say this:
We actually had a very strong weekend and first part of this week. If it’s conventioneers, we’re delighted to have them. Whether or not the city acknowledges us, we’re proud of Dallas and the part we play in bringing people here. Too bad we couldn’t be part of that video. Our favorite convention, by the way, is the Promisekeepers. When they’re in town, this place is packed.
He assured me that he was not making up that last part, which makes me happy.
