There won’t be tulips on “Pin Up” starlet Claire Sinclair’s vacation to Holland, but there will be outrageous and scandalous sex clubs during the seven-day trip starting this weekend, and it includes the Red Light District of Amsterdam.
The Stratosphere headliner told me Sunday that she’s booked Randy’s Red Light Tour of the “anything goes” sex salons of the Dutch country. “I’ve always loved the odd in life,” she admitted. “I’m just curious about those kind of things, and I have never been to an open sex district.”
She told me that two of the nightspots can’t be described for our family audience of readers. I’ll leave it best to the imagination! The Ping Pong Club lets guests party with the nearly nude table-tennis players, while at the Banana Bar, striptease dancers use peeled fruit in different ways.
“You can actually tell the girls what to do with the banana,” said Claire. “I’m not going to go for the obvious. I will be creative so that I can blog about the experience.”
She’s traveling with her best girlfriend from L.A. and her boyfriend to ensure that there’s no trouble. Claire also has plans for a dinner onboard a boat cruising the canals of Amsterdam.
“I’ve also rented a bicycled to ride all along the canals, to see all the little cafes and to the modern art museums. I’ve also got to fit in some time to do holiday shopping,” she told me.
After her European week, she plans another week of rest and relaxation in California while her show “Pin Up” is on a hiatus before it resumes in December. Claire promised to use Twitter to keep me updated on her Amsterdam tour.

It is virtually impossible to be anywhere in Las Vegas and miss the Stratosphere. It towers 1,149 feet above Las Vegas and is the tallest observation tower in the United States. The casino itself is 55,784 square feet and contains 950 slot machines, 120 game tables and 2,427 hotel rooms.
Of the hotel's 2,427 rooms, 909 were recently remodeled into Stratosphere Select rooms.
The Stratosphere is mostly known for its rides at the top of the tower. The Big Shot, located at the 113th floor, torpedoes riders up 160 feet using compressed air. X-Scream is a teeter-totter perched at the top of the observation deck — if that wasn't scary enough, the coaster arm flings the riders out 27 feet over the edge of the tower. Guests looking for something more sedate can just hang around the 107th floor and simply look at the scenery.
