Anybody remember the Vargas girl? (If you do, I can guess what your favorite magazine was!)
I subscribed to Playboy for a while when I was in college and later got a key to the Dallas Playboy Club in the mid/late seventies and I could bring one guest at no charge. Every time that you went in you could get a free issue of the magazine and they punched your card. The annual key fee was forty bucks which about the same as the price of the subscription. They had wonderful free buffets and the biggest large video screen in the city plus an awesome dance floor that was mirrored (disco era) with quite a light display. The bunnies were hot and very cool people too, great drinks and service.
Women loved to go there to dance or watch football games and were much more fun than usual afterwards If I didn't take a date, I would take one of my buddies on Sunday pr Monday night during football season and they would spring for the drinks. It was a very worthwhile investment, indeed
But in 1980 I got married and all of that came to a screetching halt I still have my collection of the magazines packed away and that includes the last tri-fold and first of the new centerfold formats. Probably worth some bucks
