X marks the spot

LuXLet's say you took over a club with two big metal Xs on the front of it.

Since you couldn't remove the Xs, you had to name the club something with an X in it, what would you settle on?

The newest incarnation of Club X Ultra Lounge/Xanadu is called LuX. If I understand correctly, that's Latin for "light."

Not bad, not bad.

But I have a few X names that might better suit the bill at this upscale club. I've even written some slogans to go along with them.

Let me show you ...

1) Club XanaX

It's great for the first hour. After that, I can't remember.

2) Club XeroX

Every other club copies off us.

3) Club Ex-LaX

"Gentle, dependable overnight relief."

Got any others for me?

Club XXL - Where the big girls go

Club Xerxes - Penetrate and withdraw

Xtraordinary Faith that this time we'll stay open for a few years instead of months

club eXtreme confidence that someone will get lucky.

how about Club Red Fish. No matter what the name actually is, the old name is taking up half the building.
I keep meaning to go in there and asking about the menu for Red Fish.

club soon to be Xtinct should be the name of any business that occupies that space. i don't think anyone is going to make it there unless they change the X thing. it's time.

I think they should just call it "Ten"

That way, they can keep the outer decor, but lose the "X" name curse.

Club X-box... since most of the losers that frequent Baltimore clubs go home to them since they strike out so often.
