Prostitution bust at Scores NYC

NYC Swingers & Sex

There is legal trouble at the strip club Scores and now, several dancers are under arrest and charged with prostitution.

All were taken into custody during an undercover sting operation. Police suspect sexual activity is happening inside the club.

Undercover cops with the vice squad entered the club late Wednesday night and they allege that several dancers engaged them in sexually explicit conversation, and allegedly told the undercover officers that some of the rooms here could be rented for sexual acts.

An attorney for the seven people arrested denies the charges and says that each of these individuals has pleaded not guilty and expects after a thorough investigation to be vindicated.

New strip club on 8 Mile?

On the heels of a city battle over a new Larry Flynt Hustler Club in downtown Detroit, another skirmish is brewing over a topless bar being proposed on 8 Mile on the site of a former go-kart track.

Community advocates working to revitalize the corridor are calling for a moratorium on such businesses, arguing the city already has 33 such bars, nine of which are located on the famed boundary between the city and suburbs.


Fisher, executive director of the Detroit Community Initiative, a nonprofit that works in northeast Detroit, where the new bar is planned, and other advocates plan to voice their concerns at a Jan. 31 hearing before the city's Department of Buildings and Safety Engineering, where the property's owner will apply to use the land for a topless bar.

The 6-acre property on 8 Mile and Mt. Elliott is zoned for industrial use. Under the city's regulations, new topless bars cannot open on land zoned for commercial use, but they can open on land zoned for industrial use.

Al's Diamond Cabaret gets liquor license

Swingers & Sex      Passionate Singles

"The days of customers lugging cases of beer into a renowned Reading strip club are about to end.

Al's Diamond Cabaret, 1810 N Fifth St, has received conditional approval for a liquor license from the Pennsylvania Liquor Control Board, agency spokeswoman Dawn R. Petrosky said.

The agency in November approved transferring a restaurant liquor license held by Terrapin Station Inc. at 5 N. Ninth St. to Al's Diamond Cabaret, Petrosky said.

Obtaining a liquor license will allow the bottle club where patrons had been paying an entrance fee and bringing in their own booze to start selling liquor.

Petrosky said the club, which serves food, must pass a final inspection by the PLCB before alcohol can be served."
