Albany Bar Set to Honor Hugh Hefner With ‘Slumber Party’ Event
An Albany area bar will be honoring Hugh Hefner with a special 'slumber party' event this Saturday (Dec. 9).
According to the Times Union, downtown Albany bar The Pearl Street Pub is a hosting a Playboy Slumber Party where women can compete for $500 and the title of 'Miss Pearl Street Pub' by dressing up in their sexiest attire. Guys are encouraged to dress as Hugh Hefner. A facebook invitation for the event appears to have been taken down perhaps due to some controversy. When questioned about the appropriateness of the party by Times Union writer Steve Barnes, Pearl Street Pub owner Chris Pratt defended the event, saying that the theme night was a suggestion from a local sorority and that many girls were in Playmate outfits on Halloween (a month after Hefner's death). "We're not objectifying anyone" he said.
I personally see no issue with this theme party. I think it seems like a fun night out to honor an icon, Hugh Hefner. Your thoughts?
