Austrian Go-Go Dancer Story Gets Translated

By Betsy Rothstein Comment

Thank God for small favors and German translators.

Yesterday we gave you the horribly garbled Google Translator version of the Austrian publication’s Go-Go story. But today, we give you a real treat: D.C. Photog Pat Ryan (who took those racy pictures at the Austrian Embassy’s Red Bull/Go-Go dancers party last week) got a German friend to translate the original story. The spelling is still mangled, but this should give you a better gist. Best line: “Half-naked models really heated up the guests.”

Everybody “Go-Go”: Embassy Really Lets Loose!

The 700 guests of honor at the Austrian Embassy in Washington, D.C. (USA), were flabbergasted: At a party on November 4, the visitors weren’t greated with the tones of a waltz, but models dancing in “go-go” style and oversized beverage cans. Now Foreign Minister Spindelegger has to get involved.

Because Green Party representative Dieter Brosz has posed a parliamentary inquiry to the Foreign Minister. Not only because last week half-naked models really heated up the guests, but above all because a well-known beverage manufacturer not only financed but apparently organized the embassy soirée all by itself.

“I’m not prudish, but go-go dancers don’t fit the image of a representative embassy party,” emphasized Brosz to Heute. He and other political representatives from Austria weren’t just embarrssed by the “half-nude matters of fact” but also were amazed “that the ambassador didn’t put a stop to the colorful spectacle,” and another visitor opined on the “completely out-of-place performance by the models.”

Spindelegger is now confronted with answersing whether embassies may allow their parties to be sponsered and if the sponsor then may have a completely free hand in its organization.
