Celebration over demise of strip club

From the Daily News:

A Queens strip club whose titillating billboard has been a thorn in the side of locals for more than a year is facing a shutdown for owing more than $150,000 in rent, officials said.

The Platinum Club in Rosedale closed its doors after it failed to get its liquor license renewed.

"We have been fighting these guys for a long time," said City Councilman James Sanders Jr. (D-Far Rockaway). "We got them good on this one."

The property owner delivered the eviction notice this month and the club, by law, had 60 days to respond in court.

But with just a month to go, the club still hasn't offered to pay the debt to keep its lease.

"Now, if we can just get them to take the sign with them," Sanders said.

It's a gentleman's club, but there were no gentlemen present.
