Strip club offers free admission for federal workers during shutdown

Who says the government shutdown doesn't have its perks? Not Deja Vu.

The adult club, with locations all over the country, including south Toledo, is offering free admission to federal employees as long as the government is shut down.

"Deja Vu understands the need for government workers to restore some normalcy to their lives," the club said in a statement.

The government shutdown stalemate, which is now in its fifteenth day, has cost the economy a reported $20 billion so far and kept hundreds of thousands of non-essential federal workers on furlough.

Deja Vu said they are doing their part to "alleviate some hardship (for federal workers) in these trying times."

As of Tuesday, leaders in Washington said they have made progress in talks to end the shutdown, but have not reached any agreements.

The federal government was last shut down for 21 days from Dec. 16, 1995 to Jan. 5, 1996.
