Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino: "If hatin' is your occupation, I probably got a full-time job for you."
MTV's controversial show Jersey Shore has caused a lot of hair-raising shock for the Italian-American community -- no hair gel needed.
But that doesn't stop Club 15 at Jim Edmonds' F15teen restaurant from capitalizing on the show's buzz.
Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino, one of the self-described "guidos", will be in town Saturday night, January 23 to host a party.
The event has created a lot of attention for Club 15, says club manager Matt Ratz.
"The guy could be the biggest douchebag in the world, but people are still gonna come to see him," says Ratz.
To wit, as of Friday, more than 260 people had confirmed on the event's Facebook page they would be at the party.
While "The Situation" has done some entertaining
in the past, it seems unlikely that St. Louis ladies will be treated to
a Full Monty.
His table will be equipped with a wireless mic and a few
bottles of Grey Goose vodka. Out on the dance floor, it's very likely some fist-pumping battles will be going down. Below, a video with more than 72,000 views on YouTube:
VIP tables, with seating close to
Sorrentino, are still available, but due to the attention his visit has
received, the club is expected to be packed.
