The answer is yes and no for the famed good times at the mansion in Holmby Hills. Yes, as Fox News' Pop Tarts feature says, the economy has had an effect on Playboy too:
After decades and decades of wild nights, we hear Hef is calling it a day and that Playboy Enterprises has decided that [the Shakespearean themed Midsummer Night's Dream] party and the upcoming annual Halloween party will be the last that the magazine mogul personally throws as a means to cut costs.
But if you haven't had the experience of visiting the infamous grotto and mini-zoo outside of the "Girls Next Door," it's not too late. We’re told the mansion is still going to be rented out for private parties with companies paying big bucks to spend a few hours amid a little slice of Hollywood history.
A lot of people just went, "phew!"
