Summer Frolick with Thunder From Down Under
in Valley Forge
|Saturday Night at Valley Beach Casino Resort - Not far from the King of Prussia Mall|
I was invited for a little media event earlier this month, which featured none other than the hot bodies of the Thunder From Down Under, male exotic dancers hailing from Australia! Talk about a real life Magic Mike XXL (click for T&T post) experience!

This was the first I'd heard that the old Valley Forge Music Fair, that I knew as a kid, which used to bring in high-caliber headline entertainment had been reestablished as part of The Valley Forge Casino Resort.

good bar noshes and island cocktails, then Thunder From Down Under started at 11pm. After the show, I went back to the Valley Beach area and got into the pool and actually danced until 2am. I think I stayed til closing because the DJ played popular songs, both old school and current, the way you know them from the radio. Instead of pumping house music, which I hate. The only thing I didn't do was hit the casino floor, but my palms were itching to shoot some craps.
Okay, Here's The PR Type Stuff:
