We don’t know whether hiring Tila Tequila to host the grand opening of T&T (Tacos & Tequila) in Las Vegas was a marketing blunder or a savvy move. On the one hand, it’s hard to imagine that a Mexican restaurant’s association with a Vietnamese sexpot who fed people bull penises and pig vaginas on reality TV would be positive. Then again, this eatery not only shares Tila Tequila’s initials (“T&T”) but the name is a not-so-subtle pun on “T&A” — and Tila has plenty of that . Genius!
Nestled cozily in a 8,200-square-foot space in the Egyptian-themed hotel and casino Luxor, the amusement park strip club restaurant features a rock soundtrack, dancing skeletons and a “bullfighting arena feel.” Patrons, of course, get served by “Tequila Temptresses.” Call us snooty, but we already have a headache. And we’re pretty sure most celebrities feel the same way. Just consider that comedian Carrot Top and magician Chriss Angel seem to be the closest thing to A-Listers at last night’s opening.
