Sex and the City 2: the Lame Cash-Ins Begin

Remember when Sex and the City was on HBO, and was somewhat edgy? Well now it's Disney for bachelorette parties and aging women trying to recapture their youths with shoes and cocktails. And the lamest places in NY smell money.

The SATC sequel (or Golden Girls prequel, depending on your point of view) is opening on May 28th. In it, the 'ladies' go to Dubai. But that hasn't stopped the most tourist-infested hotels, bars and clubs in New York offering 'special deals' so that the good people of Des Moines, or Manchester, England, can come to the city and have a bad, expensive time but pretend they're having a good time because that's what they saw Carrie, Samantha, Charlotte and the other one do.

According to luxist, who we assume are lifting directly from a press release:

Available May 28 to June 30, Apple Core Hotels' "Sex and The Big Apple Core" package includes modern accommodations, passes to the Sex & the City Hotspots Tour, and complimentary Sex & The City DVD to brush up for the sequel! There are five Apple Core Hotels in New York City and rates for the "Sex and The Big Apple Core" package start at $215.

The Hotel Gansevoort is also offering a package which includes access to clubs like Provocateur at Hotel Gansevoort, PM, Cielo, Dirty Disco, Guest House, Marquee, and Pink Elephant. Which is the cherry on the cake of reasons to avoid the Meatpacking district forever more.
