    Bembenek worked briefly as a Playboy Club waitress in Lake Geneva before becoming a police officer in Milwaukee, where she married detective Fred Schultz.

    Around the time Bambi was working at the Lake Geneva (Wisconsin) Playboy Club, I actually went there with my then-husband and my friend Steve. We hated it. It was like how I imagine Deron’s and Amy’s cruise experience.

    There was a machine you could use to stamp any slogan you liked on a medallion, and we used it to make a medallion imprinted PLAYBOY CLUB SUCKS SEVERELY.

    PLAYBOY CLUB DID NOT MEET MY ADMITTEDLY LOW EXPECTATIONS AND I SHALL NOT BE RETURNING

    Joel, that was way too many characters to fit on the medallion.

    (But I’m telling you, the Lake Geneva Playboy Club was a precursor of the sanitized Las Vegas.)
