Troy R James has often spoken about his ‘nightclub’ days. However, Troy fails to mention it was when he still used his proper name, Troy Hogg. (OK, Troy Richard James Hogg, for those of you out there that want us to remain precise 😉 ). He also excludes the fact they weren’t actually his clubs lol.
So, the nightclubs Troy R James refers to are Adult Entertainment, or strip clubs. Does that mean his alleged “guerilla marketing skills” consists of handing out free-entry flyers to a titty bar? LMAO
We thought we’d highlight a couple of points from the SEC quarterly report from March 31, 2002 for Gala Hospitality (GLAH).
