Girls Gone Wild hits Middletown, not everyone happy

By Tiffany Teasley – bio | email

HAMILTON, OH (FOX19) - It's the biggest thing that ever hit a small town bar.

"Middletown don't get a lot of excitement, so the whole town is ready," said Lisa Hammer, owner of Reflections.

Ready for Girls Gone Wild, the party bus made it's stop in Middletown on Monday, and word has already spread around town, catching just about everyone's eye as they walk by.

"I didn't know if it might have been the real thing or what, but I just couldn't believe that they would come here," said Rachelle Sample of Trenton.

"I've seen plenty of commercials, Girls Gone Wild, never thought it would be in our area," said a passerby.

The party kicked off at 8:00 p.m. and went until close, featuring bikini and wet T-shirt contest and prizes.

So how did this big name promoter come to find Reflections Bar in Middletown?

 "I had sent them an email a couple months ago and apparently they have a cancellation in the area and they had seen my email and they were going to be in this direction so they called," Hammer said.

But, some in Middletown aren't to happy about the famous or rather infamous group setting up shop in their community.

A children's learning center sits just a few yards from the bar and workers there told us off camera that Girls Gone Wild completely goes against the morals and values they teach the children, but others around town say there are benefits to the bus.

"It should bring a lot of business here tonight," Sample said.
