While the US economy implodes and Wall Street benchmarks such as the Dow Jones Industrial Average are teetering on the brink of collapse, there are businesses such as the strip club V.I.P Club in Chelsea, NYC that are making off like the proverbial bandits by offering $1,000 lap dances to Wall Street executives.

The club caters mostly to Wall Street types and according to its owner Sam Zherka, "Since the market has been going down, our business has been going up--it’s unbelievable."

And because business is booming, Mr. Zherka has come up with the brilliant idea of offering a $1,000 lap dance package complete with Dom Perignon and other amenities to the despondent and suicidal Wall Street bigwigs. Stats for $1,000 Lap Dances Trending: Older & Mild
