Pinellas County deputies arrested eight women on charges including prostitution and nudity at Vegas Showgirls near Derby Lane in St. Petersburg Friday night. The sting happened about 9 p.m. at 10750 Gandy Boulevard. Ahhh, Vegas. It used to be one of my spots, especially after a night at Derby. But now that I have changed my wayward ways, I have yet to be back there, although now I feel like I should stop by as a show of support. Speaking of support, if you look at the comments posted about this news story, the majority of readers disagree with the decision to stake out Vegas in the first place. Doesn’t the Sheriff’s Office have something better to do?
