Florida Panhandle Bar Trades Smokes for Condoms During Spring Break
March 18, 2002
Spinnaker Beach Club in Panama City Beach, Fla., has accepted an offer from LifeStyles Condoms to buy out its cigarette inventory for just over $5,000 and substitute the supply with condoms, LifeStyles spokesperson Joe Naughton said Friday. The condom maker is touting the deal as a way to replace an unhealthy product with one that can prevent STDs. Naughton said the company had made a similar offer to other area nightclubs at the popular spring breach destination, but that so far only Spinnaker had accepted. "This is a singles place, said club Manager Jeff Sheehan. "If they're going to have sex then we are all about them having safe sex." The cigarettes will be destroyed, Naughton said.
