Independent Professional Entertainers

Anyone ever do one of these shops? I'm intrigued by the reimbursement. Is the report easy to fill out?
Got one about an hour away and want to go offer my observation skills to help this industry out.

Try searching some keywords. I am almost positive that someone who did this shop wrote about it in a thread but I can't remember where.

I've never been inclined to snag one of these shops - even "to help this industry out". I would, however, try to pick up one of the MJ shops if I ever see them along my travels.
Dongjuan be careful to make sure your "observation skills " remain totally objective during those lap dances or you might have to go back and redo them at your expense. Hmm, three from three different dancers? or a triple from one dancer, maybe all 3 at once. This job seems like it would be a grind to me.

Poor customer service? Don't get mad; get video.
If you think you're going to get three lap dances and give each of them $6.66 each (as per reimbursement guidelines) as a tip and not get a heel in your face, you are living in la la land. I know mystery shoppers pay what is reimbursed as a matter of business, but I assure you, this will not work out well. And holy cow, $25 cover charge?

That being said, I'd go for the free drinks.

I am guessing that MJ = Mary Jane = marijuana

If you have to do the shop over again and again, does it become a tax write off? It's a business loss isn't it? LOL

Tons of them in CO
Oh, sorry folks...yes, MJ is marijuana - for medicinal purposes, of course. From an old hippie chick. And, though I have not touched or been even near the vapors in 40+ years, I think someday I might use a bit for my aches and pains. No, with background checks & drug tests for the gigs I take - no way no how.
I have seen them around here but I can't do one because I know the bouncer and a bartender from elsewhere.
Not seen any like this. Sounds like your doing alcohol and sex control. Be very careful as you will have a big tab to cover, plus driving expense. I would suggest that you make sure the driving cost is covered. Also, verify with the MS company that the job is ligate, not a hack to get business. Have a letter of authorization for any issues. Also, cover payment issues, timing, and anything else. If you have not done business with the MS company before, than I would not take it.
The spousal unit makes cookies and brownies. The MJ of today is not like the MJ of the last century. Much much stronger. And yes we both had a OMMA card.

Well, I'm waiting until the day I am certain I won't need testing/clearance for anymore projects. Then I'm doing my own version of the cooking show, "Bong Appetite" !
Monk, I absolutely love that show and salivate over it every time it comes on.

The judges seem like they would have really high tolerances. I'd probably pass out after the amuse bouche, or be giggling in some corner.
