Updated: Do you look like Ashley 'Kristen' Dupre?
If you do - pleasure chest nightclub Headquarters New York wants to see you tonight.
The club, located on West 38th Street, will hold an "Ashley Dupre Look-alike Contest" tonight at 10 p.m. So, if you're feeling like a girl gone wild -- or a guy gone wild for that matter -- we'd like to see a drag version of the infamous call girl who felled Eliot Spitzer - anyway, the point is, show up at Headquarters tonight.
The club describes itself as such:
"The classic plush interiors of Club HQ continue to attract photo shoots for models of Playboy and Penthouse, runway shows, music video shoots for artists appearing on MTV, VH1, Fuse TV, and millennial celebrities like Tila Tequila."
This just in on the judging panel: We'll have The Naked Cowboy of Times Square, Dan Grimaldi (small role on the Sopranos) and emcee Cabbie from The Howard Stern Show.
And we're keeping our fingers crossed for a surprise appearance by Eliot Spitzer -- I mean, wouldn't he know best?
The prize is more than prestige ladies. The winner gets $500 and a two-week dancing engagement at the club.
Friday 5/2/08 Update: On our way out to the Tribeca Film Festival, we put in a quick call (no, it wasn't on our speed dial) to Headquarters New York to find out who won.
A regular dancer at the club, Michaela, was the big winner, according to an employee. Michaela apparently didn't even need to dress up or do anything special, her natural charm was enough.
If you happened to have attended, feel free to post a first-hand account (or, zap us photos).
