Flexing Fun

No, no, it’s not Chip and Dale, Disney’s cartoon chipmunks who eat nuts. It’s Chippendales, the international revue in which magnificent specimens of bronzed, brawny men expose just about everything but their … well, they wear modest G-strings to hide those. Since the 1980s, this “mini-Broadway show” — that’s what the promoters call it — has presented “fun and fantasy fulfillment for women” in the form of male beauty as envisioned by Michelangelo: broad shoulders, rippling torsos, bulging biceps and fantasy costumes (the fireman and the cop are two favorites) that can be easily ripped off to drive audiences positively nuts. Harrah’s VooDoo Lounge (1 Riverboat Drive, 816-472-7777) is calling tonight’s 10 p.m. show “the Ultimate Girls Night Out.” But the, uh, Broadway-style show isn’t exclusively for women. To truly appreciate the tanned, toned testosterone onstage, stop at the casino’s buffet first to see the kind of guy who should never take his clothes off in public. Make reservations at 816-931-3330 or voodooreservations@harrahs.com.
