The Seminole Casinos swank Pangaea Lounge and Gryphon Nightclub is ringing in the new year with One Night in Bangkok, an Oriental bash named after that soaring ABBA-style anthem by Murray Head. Its safe to assume that Pangaeas party wont include any Ping-Pong shows or underaged lady boys. But it will feature DJ Robbie Rivera this year rated number 95 on DJ Magazines list of the top 100 DJs in the world. The underlying Asian theme will be provided by Zhantra Entertainment, a company whose website greets you with a woman dancer drenched in pearls, wearing nipple tassels and looking more ornately sex-slavish than even Lady Gaga in Bad Romance. To fuel the decadence, there will be an open bar and champagne toast. Just one rule: Dress fashionably. One Night in Bangkok starts at 10 p.m. and is for the 21-and-over crowd. Tickets cost $50 to $100. Find Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino at 5711 Seminole Way in Hollywood. Call 954-581-5454, or visit gryphon-club.com.
