feeling like a VIP

A work colleague left in April and for reasons of customer service I started to get her mail forwarded to my inbox. She lives in a particularly posh section of Long Island, and one of her e-mail newsletter subscriptions is something called the "VIP Clubber." Every day an email about some New York night-club comes into my inbox, and I've been deleting them up until yesterday, when I was so bored in a meeting that I started perusing the text and realized it was comedic gold! If you get a kick of making fun of the neuveau riche, then this is for you. Check out this email copy. I've bolded the things I take to be "laugh lines."

Today's email brings me news of SoHo's first eco-friendly nightlife destination with transparent ceiling fixture comprised of over 5,000 individually hung crystals designed to emulate a rolling landscape. How could you not want to go? But be careful; Dress is Grown and Sexy, and they reserve the right to be selective.


Dare I ask what a "grown and sexy" dresscode means?!?!? I'm intrigued and a little disturbed, too!

Perhaps you can reply and inquire... curious minds want to be dressed appropriately ;)

I think it's the kind of thing where if you have to ask you'll never know....

Just got another one advertising "2 for 1 Bottles for $450 All In."

2 bottles of what? $10 dollar bills?

Dang... I feel left out of the grown & sexy party. Can you explain "casual & sexy" at least?
