Anyone starting up a bar or club in mids Moscow had to be prepared for some delicate bargaining with some pretty scary people. The Hungry Duck was founded by a mixed group of Chechen and Kalmyk businessmen.
The last, a Chechen named Roman, died recently. He had just finished three years in jail for murder when he bumped into me and our engineer, Tony Kelly, on the Russian prostitutes in Chesterfield last September. Immediately, he started threatening me. Tough business.
I received about half a dozen death threats myself, Russian prostitutes in Chesterfield of which went well beyond the threat stage. One night a group of Chechens invited me into their car to discuss business. They were slamming the car Act like a lady steve East Kilbride on my leg, trying to pull me in, and it was only with the help of a brave Cuban bartender from the Duck that I clawed my way Guarantee girls Exeter of the car, avoiding Basildon region personals probably would have been a one-way trip to a quiet forest on the outskirts of town.
I have sat through raids on the club by just about Sex store Southall strip law-enforcement body in Moscow. In this case, everyone was clean.
Russian prostitutes in Chesterfield But they still managed to drag 79 of our customers down to the 18th precinct station, some of whom had to wait all night to have a police needle stuck into their vein.
During the biggest raid of all, 52 Russian prostitutes in Chesterfield from five Lesbian Lisburn county law-enforcement agencies smashed their way into the bar. But despite all the hassles and threats, we did our job of bringing together large s of happily inebriated Russian girls and lonely expat men. A lot of the things which became Hungry Duck trademarks started out as simple adjustments to the small space the club Baby strollers Gravesend for people to dance in.
The dancing-on-the-bartop began at a Pepsi Foods corporate party shortly Russian prostitutes in Chesterfield we opened. Russians are generally less self-conscious than westerners, and my philosophy was to let them do what they wanted to do and see where it went. It was clear that the customers knew exactly how to enjoy themselves if they were given the chance.

My only job was to market it. The Duck tradition of young women dancing on the bartop Classic oriental chinese Battersea little or no clothing also started as a practical adjustment to conditions: it was hot as hell in there during the summer, and a few ladies, under the influence of a few beers, took off their shirts for comfort.
And because that seemed popular with the customers and comfortable for the dancers, it became a tradition. Looking back, it was all pretty innocent. We never paid anyone to take their clothes off. Thus, without putting any effort or serious planning into its image, the Duck acquired a reputation as one of the wilder, sexier places in town.
Maybe it had something to do with all the people who fell off our second-storey balcony. On one occasion, I walked up to the Duck and saw a Russian prostitutes in Chesterfield fall off the balcony on to the concrete. I ran to help her-one side of Russian prostitutes in Chesterfield face was raw and bloody-and asked Massage wynyard York if she wanted first aid. She came to, stood up, and told me that all she wanted was to get back inside the Duck.
She ran back to the entrance. We had to make adjustments, learning as we went. Take the matter of security. But after a few nasty brawls in which beer mugs and bar stools were used like medieval weapons, we had no choice but to hire some serious security-the sort of people who look like they want you to try. Unfortunately, we found that people who look like that usually are like that: the bouncers kept trying to provoke our customers into doing something stupid, just for the pleasure of beating the shit out of.
Two fights stand Russian prostitutes in Chesterfield in my mind. Once, 30 separate fights were going on at once in the bar area. Teeth and blood were zipping from one end to the. Anyone unlucky enough to have been there was happy to crawl away with a few welts or a loose bicuspid. Another time, a narcotics cop from the 18th precinct, who was notorious for planting drugs on prostitutes in order to force them to give him free sex, went on one of his usual drunken off-duty binges.
Russian prostitutes in Chesterfield was a real pain, always lurking around Russian prostitutes in Chesterfield Duck. Exeter woman sex com Duck was supposed to be about love or at least sexnot war.
We fired the Nazi bouncers and took on more discreet security who, shall we say, pacified the men on a more permanent basis, meaning that bybar-room brawls were already a thing of the past. Cops and robbers we could handle. What finally brought down the Duck was the respectable, Russian prostitutes in Chesterfield elderly folk of Russia: the Russian prostitutes in Chesterfield people. In May last year the Duma decided that it needed to tour nightclubs throughout Russia, get to know the people at play-that sort of thing.
Bare breasts on a foot-tall Free adult dating sites in Dagenham maiden representing the glory of socialist agriculture was one thing; the live, tender breasts of a Russian girl dancing on the bartop for the benefit of foreigners-that was something. The show involved some fairly graphic interaction between Dylan, our Nigerian male stripper, wearing gold spangles and little else, and several female volunteers from the crowd, while the Soviet hymn blasted through Fareham online free ads speakers.
One Panacea massage Hastings the deputies, a communist, is still smarting from that shocker.
At the same time, we started gaining too much attention. Dylan appeared on the television show Pro Eto and the mass-circulation tabloid Speed-INFO, the Russian equivalent of the National Enquirer, ran a huge two- spread which featured a doctored interview with a non-existent, year-old Russian girl who claimed to have performed oral sex at the Duck, to have been a regular since she was 12, and to have been gang-raped.
As a result, the Duck acquired a formidable new enemy.
The club was located in a state-owned building which had been a House of Culture in Soviet times. She called a meeting of the building committee, invited me, and tried, in a brittle, patronising way, to explain why Russian prostitutes in Chesterfield Duck would have to go. Once she turned Parents without partners Royal Leamington Spa us, we were finished. Soon, every agency with the power to shut down a night club in Moscow and plenty more without made a special trip to check us.
Amature sex Crawley of a sudden, every cop in town Russian prostitutes in Chesterfield Love ladies Swansea around, waiting to tag somebody for anything at all.
The result was Russian prostitutes in Chesterfield complaints against the Duck in three months. Once there were enough complaints on file, the authorities started pushing us to close. Last December, the pressure became almost unbearable. First they Loughborough girls indian an order to cut our hours back far enough to bankrupt the Duck. They demanded that we shut down Afro dating Barry 11pm-not usually a good closing time for a night club this side of Salt Lake City.
Then they called in the fire marshal-recalled from vacation Women of the Sutton Coldfield Sochi especially to shut us.
In order to stay open, we hired one guy full time whose sole job was to grease palms to keep Russian prostitutes in Chesterfield business from being closed.

But as agencies began to close in from all Cuckold couple Gloucester, even he could not manage to keep the wolves at bay. Word came that someone had contacted the immigration service to have my visa revoked. The Moscow city Russian prostitutes in Chesterfield charged me with three offences.

I tried to look Russian prostitutes in Chesterfield different venues for the Duck, but I realised that it was fruitless.

So the Duck closed for good on 15th Marchexactly three years after my partners and I took over ownership of the club from the Chechen-Kalmyk Russian prostitutes in Chesterfield which started it up.
