SANTA NAILS IS COMING TO TOWN
Former Met and convicted felon Lenny Dykstra will play Santa Claus on Wednesday. At a strip club. The rugged retired centerfielder, whose hard-nosed style of play earned him the nickname Nails, will be dressed in full Santa garb at 8 p.m. at Vivid Cabaret, the W. 37th St. jiggle joint. “The Vivid Cabaret girls will sit on his lap,” says one insider, who jokes that the strippers should ask him whether he’s been “naughty or nice.” That’s usually the job of Dykstra’s probation officer.
