Strippers Free Entry.....Huh?!?

I'm taking a blogging break from talking about my adventures with the sibs. Don't worry my friends, I will continue posting about it all soon.  But I had to take the time to put up a short post about a trip to Whitley Bay this past Sunday with Julie and her Mom.  We spent the day at the coast, walking from Tynemouth to Cullercoats to Whitley Bay.  All of which are the cutest little beach towns with their own unique personalities. 

By the time we got to Whitley Bay, it was kind of a ghost town.  By 4pm on a Sunday, most things are closed down for the day.  We had fun walking down the main street anyway.  As we walked past one of the bars we saw a VERY interesting looking sign.  Take a look.

WHAT THE HECK?!?!?!??!  I don't know if "strippers" has an alternative meaning here in the UK, but in the United States, "strippers" are erotic dancers.  Apparently, they need to go to Whitley Bay where they can gain entrance for free on Saturdays between the hours of 3:00 and 6:30pm.  Lucky them. 

I perused the internet looking for alternate meanings for "strippers" in the UK.  But the only meaning I could find is the same as what it means in the US.  If anyone has some UK slang knowledge and knows of a different meaning, please, enlighten me.  Otherwise, Julie and I will continue laughing about this one for a long long time.


  1. Strippers mean strippers, unless they meant they were having a decorating party and they were looking for wallpaper strippers. This is also a possibility???

  2. All of which are the cutest little beach towns with their own unique personalities. NYC strippers
