Laddie Empire Officially on the Block


At last, we’ll finally get to see whether Dennis Publishing president Steve Colvin‘s long-running campaign to slap the Maxim brand on everything from hair dye and steakhouses to the Vegas desert itself will translate into big bucks.

Today, Dennis is making its search for a buyer public.
