Economic Boom Good For Strippers, Steakhouses

Posted By on Mon, Oct 6, 2008 at 3:14 PM

In Wyoming, another state experiencing a gas boom, rig workers have found some pretty constructive ways to spend their fat paychecks.  Wyoming's enormous natural gas resources are second only to Texas.  The NYT reports that strip joints and steakhouses in Rock Springs have been doing quite well now that the locals have a little extra money in their pockets. 

There are any number of ways to gauge an economic boom, and here lap dances may be a pretty good measure.

“I make over $100,000 a year,” bragged Eric Palmer, who works as a gas field operator in a town that has enriched many of them. Mr. Palmer was surrounded by a bevy of strippers at the Astro Lounge, all of them eager to take advantage of his generosity. “I spend $3,000 a weekend here,” he said. “I just love the company of beautiful women.”

Hey, maybe the economy's not so bad afterall.
