Scores to take over Aqua
Aqua, the popular summer poolside club at the Merritt Athletic Club in Canton, is back for another season.
But this year, it's being run by Scores, the gentleman's club at 615 Fallsway.
No, there won't be strippers at Aqua, which, due to a partnering with Van Gogh Blue vodka, has been renamed Aqua Blue. That's according to Sean Lewis, the general manager of Scores and now a co-owner of Aqua Blue.
"It's so busy at Scores already that none of the girls could [work at Aqua]," Lewis said. "All of our staff is here on a Saturday night." ...
Lewis said Scores will be hiring a whole new staff of people to run Aqua Blue. In fact, they're holding open auditions this Saturday at 2 p.m. at the pool.
Aqua Blue's grand opening is June 6, and it's almost sold out, Lewis said. The lounge will be open every Saturday through the end of the summer and have a $10 cover charge. Each week will feature a different theme, he said.
"We're moving it up a notch this year," he said. "We're trying to price it Baltimore -- not over the top. ... We're just trying to get the right group of people in -- good, fun people."
