Punk Rockers, Porn Stars, Born Losers, and Other Thanksgiving Weekend Cheap Thrills
|Porn star Priya Rai will be in attendance at Club Silver tonight.|
But instead of sipping and supping with dear Aunt Mary or crazy Uncle Bob over the Thanksgiving weekend, consider this proposition: drinking and dancing with a pulchritudinous porn star. More specifically, Indo-Pakistani adult film star Priya Rai, who will the guest of honor at tonight's Pre-Thanksgiving Safe-Sex Bash at Club Silver.
Rai, a native of India and one-time ASU student, will be lighting up the downtown Phoenix nightspot while the DJs of Surge Nights Entertainment will fill the joint with Top 40 hits.
For some of you cats, it might just be the closest you'll get to hanging out with a porn star without clutching a fistful of hundies. No that's truly something to be thankful for.
