Man Sues Goldrush Strip Club, Claims He Got So Drunk He Put $18,930 on His Credit Card
One of the many devilish brilliances of the nightlife industry is that customers end up making buying decisions when they're already a little drunk. What's another $14 gin and tonic when you've already had a few $14 gin and tonics? In fact, why not buy the whole place a round? Right? We've all woken up and thought, We spent how much last night?
Of course, very rarely do we spend nearly 19 grand like a local attorney did at the Goldrush strip club in downtown Miami. Now he's suing the club and claims he was so drunk that the club shouldn't have accepted his money.
The plaintiff is attorney Mark S. Gold, a lawyer who ironically specializes in DUI cases and founded the Ticket Clinic.
According to the suit obtained by Courtroom News Service, "Gold Rush [sic] knowingly and continuously served plaintiff alcoholic beverages to the extent that he was rendered intoxicated, partially or temporarily unconscious, and further to the extent that he had a complete loss of judgment, rational thought, or ability to enter into lawful contracts or agreements.
"Gold Rush having knowingly caused plaintiff's irrational state of mind, continued to ply him with liquor in order to charge his credit card excessive amounts to the extent of $18,930," adds the suit.
We're seriously wondering how exactly someone can rack up $18,930 at Goldrush. How many lap dances can that buy? Did he agree to pay for a stripper's college education or something?
