Mons Venus owner Joe Redner welcomes 2012 Republican convention with open arms

Mons Joe Redner may be a Democrat, but the owner of Tampa's most renowned cultural institution, Mons Venus, was thrilled with the news his hometown will host the 2012 Republican convention.


"Any time there's a convention the clubs do well,'' he said. "Some of them frequent clubs everywhere they go. Some of them are curious because it's the Mons Venus. I promise I won't tell anybody when they come into the club."
