NEW YORK TIMES

STRIPPERS WITH A PLOT

Gyms are packed with people who resolved to get fit in the new year, and while we’re all for getting healthy, nothing depresses us more than watching a roomful of hungry New Yorkers fight over free weights and climb Stairmasters to nowhere. The Miser is on vacation this week, living it up in the hedonist’s paradise of New Orleans, so we think it’s safe to assume that she’d prefer to kick back with a martini and a dish of salted peanuts and watch women of all shapes and sizes get their (and their audience’s) heart rates up the old-fashioned way: with stripping and high drama.
