TAMPA - While officials at the Republican National Convention are preparing for Isaac, a very lucrative and risque business in Tampa is preparing for the RNC visitors.
Tampa is welcoming the gop for its national convention. And the city expects to cash in on all of its attractions, especially the adult-oriented nightlife.
You might be wondering why all the anticipation. Well, an adult industry trade organization says Republicans spend big money.
In fact during their past two conventions in Minnesota and New York, Republicans spent $150 per person at adult clubs. While the democrats, only dropped $50 per person in Boston and Denver during their conventions. Some entertainers say this will be bigger than the Super Bowls they've worked.
"A thousand dollars an hour. That would be, I'm really optimistic." Dancer Go-Go says.
Reporter: "For how many hours?"
"I'll work for as long as my body can take." Go-Go says.
One club owner said he invested nearly a million dollars in improvements just for the convention. He's hoping that investment pays off, but only time will tell.
