Strip Scribbles: DJ Pauly D gets tanning bed at Palms (and it’s for rent)
Jersey Shore sensation and Rhode Island star DJ Pauly D is being honored in a unique first for Las Vegas. The reality TV stud is getting his own tanning bed at Sunset Tan in Drift Spa in the Palms, and the public can use it, too. Paul DelVecchio will be at the Palms on Friday for the tanning bed dedication and ribbon-cutting ceremony.
The newly named Pauly D bed is available for $50 as part of the GTL package -- that means Gym, Tan & Liquor! Two tanning sessions, a two-day gym pass and a round of 2-for-1 cocktails at Iron Chef Kerry Simon’s lounge opposite the spa are included in the package.
There’s no truth to the rumor that after you experience what Pauly goes through that you’ll sound like him and only want to spin the wheels of steel with a “Yo!”
