If you are asked to leave, just leave. If you must continue your quest for strippers, go to another club and leave the gun locked in the car.
Oh and there is nothing saying that a strip club is off limits by definition. Most clubs make over 51% of their money from the sale of alcohol, automatically eliminating them for lawful carry. As far as BYOB clubs, nothing says they cannot post a compliant 30.06 sign.
Again, I am not a lawyer...if you want better, more accurate information, you can consult a lawyer that is familiar with Texas CHL law.
2.B.b- For purposes of this section, a person receives notice if the owner of the property or someone with apparent authority to act for the owner provides notice to the person by oral or written communication.
The law doesn't go into any specifics about "oral communication" but specifically states the following:
(3)"Written communication" means:
(A) a card or other document on which is written language identical to the following "Pursuant to Section 30.06, Penal Code (trespass by holder of license to carry a concealed handgun), a person licensed under Subchapter H, Chapter 411, Government Code (concealed hangun law), may not enter this property with a concealed handgun"; or
then it goes on to explain exactly how the sign must be displayed etc.
So basically the sign they post doesn't mean shit to you. Until a manager or someone of authority asks you to leave, you are fine. The only person that should know you are carrying is you, right? I say do it! You never know when some crazy ex boyfriend of a stripper is going to come in there and light the place up!
