Teen Dance Nights at Rich's Come Under Fire From Parents and KPRC

Just another night at Rich's Houston...

Last night KPRC aired a frazzled piece about Rich's Houston's popular teen dance nights, namely their upcoming Playboy-themed night geared towards the kiddos, advertising on Facebook for attendees to strut their underage stuff in their sexiest outfits for prizes.

Of course in light of the ongoing Penn State scandal, anything of even a remotely sexual nature involving teens and young adults is being scrutinized. The report, helmed by Dominique Sachse and Robert Arnold, features interviews with worried parents like Laura Gallier.

A Rich's rep gave a phone interview to KPRC about the event and did note that parents were encouraged to come to the club with their children, and that alcohol is not served while the underagers are grooving to Skrillex or DeadMau5 and whatever the hell else kids listen to these days and dance parties.

Somehow we are more worried about the parents volunteering themselves to chaperone their kids at one of these events, rather than outright putting their foot down and not allowing their teens to go altogether.

Rocks Off routinely covers the events at Rich's with slideshows, but ours are from nights with adult crowds and followings, ones with scantily-clad men and women with spray-painted body parts and togas. Those pictures are always more funny and lighthearted than enticing, to be honest.

Do we agree with an evening presented to high school girls as Playboy-themed? Not at all, but considering what seems to be a decline in social standards and what flies with parents in 2011, it's not surprising that girls with braces and learning permits are trying to live out some Ke$ha-stoked fantasy at a Midtown dance club.

So parents, what do you think? Should your teen daughters be beckoned to a Playboy-themed event to "bring out the skirts and come looking sexy" on a school night, no less, to strut their illegal stuff for prizes? Or should they probably wait until they turn 18 and go off to college, where they can use your credit card to buy a slutty maid costume for a campus Halloween shindig? Decisions...

Even though I'm basically a kid myself, (19 years old), I just think it's wrong for young girls to even go to stuff like that, ESPECIALLY if it's unsupervised, and it makes teens act like grown folks!

Maybe they should call it a pagent for 3 and 4 year-olds.

I guess, for some, it's never too early to let your teenaged daughter go out on the town dressed like a ho. Why wait?

Can adult gay perverts come to chaparone these events?  Must sound like heaven to a lot of pervs looking for a way to spend a teen school night. And of course the Houston Press understands the decline in social standards with 4 or 5 back pages filled with offers of porn, sex, homosexuality, and perversions.

People would rather complain than parent?

That "decline" has been going on for centuries and centuries. Welcome to the world.

There must be places on the web you find interesting and enlightening. What does it say about you that you choose to spend even some time at a site that you profess to hate?

LOL at me being a leftist. Nice try. I'm more aggravated by being called leftist than a hipster.

Then you're just wrong. Sorry. I could call you a Brazilian Mormon, but saying things doesn't make them true when they're not.

Just curious.

Again with the hipster crap, though. I do not think that word means what you think it means.

It's actually entertaining reading the clueless rants from hipsters like yourself and leftists. Why do you care what I do?

The music & food sections are above average I will admit.

You called it a rag and said no one in his right mind would pay for it. Maybe you don't "hate" it, but you clearly don't find it worthwhile. Yet you're still here.
