Passionate Local Singles Sex Partner Locator
"It took less than an hour yesterday for Bullitt County employees to raze the former home of Gobel's Exotic Entertainment in Shepherdsville.
Workers from the road department began demolishing the building at about 10 am, bringing down the purple-trimmed walls and green roof.
The building, once home to a chain restaurant, had been a strip club for more than a decade and was considered an eyesore by many local residents. Bullitt Fiscal Court voted last week to demolish the vacant building. The county bought it in February for $1 million from owner Gobel Newsome."
BIRMINGHAM | The strippers at Sammy's have a few tools of the trade: Thongs, garter belts stuffed with $1 bills, 6-inch heels and spray-on bikinis.
Under a settlement between 18 adult nightclubs and the Alabama attorney general's office, dancers statewide are spritzing their buttocks and breasts with flesh-colored latex to comply with the state's anti-nudity law, one of the most restrictive in the nation.
Club operators figured out that a combination of thongs and latex spray -- most commonly used as theatrical makeup -- would meet the law's restrictions if dancers used the rubber to cover themselves in just the right places.
The state, which already was defending against a lawsuit filed by strip clubs challenging the law, says it reluctantly went along with the clubs rather than having a federal judge follow through on his threat to throw out the entire statue as unconstitutional.
With the settlement, prosecutors agreed to dismiss charges against the operator of a Huntsville strip club called Fantasia Gentleman's Club, where dancers earlier this year were accused of illegally dancing in the buff

"Masters is the largest gentleman's club on the Grand Strand, probably one of the largest anywhere with over 33,000 square feet. This sounds great - to those who enjoy that kind of thing of course (uncouth louts!) - but it's a flawed concept. Many of the seats are so far away from the gigantic stage that you feel the need for binoculars.
Bringing the nose bleed seats to strip clubs isn't such a fantastic idea.
Again, maybe it was a long week before Christmas thing, but I'd be wary of the Masters. Though it does have relatively cheap beer ($3.75 Bud Lights).
I was in and out in only one beer though, spending the shortest time ever recorded in a strip club by a man (about 20 minutes). Of course, I was only there because I was looking out for you. That's how seriously I take these travel responsibilities."
Mustang, TX - It's not much to look at: two dusty streets, a strip club, a boarded-up country western bar, one trash bin, and a dilapidated trailer park where the entire population lives.
This 75-acre town, carved from a pasture in 1973 to sell alcohol so a beer run was no longer a 60-mile drive to Dallas, is broke, withering and down to about 50 residents.
Yet even with the place in such dismal shape, two people have been fighting for a year over who effectively owns Mustang: the strip-club operator and the little-known widow of the town's co-founder.
That fight will makes Jan. 17 – when a judge is expected to decide the rightful owner and who will try to fix its financial problems – an important date in its history.
"All I want is to see Mustang on its feet again so we can pay the bills," said Gary Arnett, chief of the town's two-man volunteer fire department. "We have children here. I don't want to see the town have to relocate."
Tax revenue has fallen from about $1,500 a month to just $28 in November, generated only by the strip club. Mustang came close to losing water service this month because of a $3,400 unpaid bill.
The ownership battle is between Thomas Sinclair, who runs the Wispers Cabaret strip club and leases the shuttered Mustang Club bar, and Marsha McKie, whose late husband, William, co-founded the community. Sinclair agreed last year to buy the land from the McKies for $600,000, then filed a lawsuit alleging that they had not fulfilled all the terms of the deal.

DALLAS -- Police are searching for two men they say rammed a van into a strip club in an attempt to steal an ATM. Surveillance video from The Platinum Club in Dallas shows the van in the parking lot and slamming through the club's front doors.
The men can then be seen entering the club and heading for the ATM, which was bolted to the floor and to the wall.The pair quickly leave empty-handed, but the manager of the club is convinced the men will try the same thing at another location."We are hoping that by airing it they [the police] catch them and they don't do it to someone else. That's the key," said Rob Epperson, of The Platinum Club.

Kansas City Swingers Find Bondage Partners in KC
Kansas City - The Missouri Supreme Court ruled Tuesday that a law banning nudity and imposing other restrictions on strip clubs violates the state constitution, according to a recently published report.
The court had already deemed the law unconstitutional in August 2005. The court's decision was based on that fact that the law was tacked onto a bill toughening Missouri's drunken-driving laws, and the state constitution requires legislation to deal with only one subject.
According to the Missouri Supreme Court, the strip club law constitutes "log-rolling," which refers to the practice of gathering several matters in a single bill, in the hope of ensuring their passage.
According to Dan Margolies' report for the Kansas City Star, the ruling last year was a victory for the adult entertainment industry and yet another setback for Missouri Sen. Matt Bartle, the Lee's Summit Republican who sponsored the bill as well as other measures aimed at the adult entertainment industry.
Margolies' report went on to say that the strip-club bill struck down Tuesday banned full nudity; required dancers to stay at least 10 feet from customers and behind a rail; barred dancers from touching customers; and required customers and dancers to be at least 21 years of age.
