Topless tavern to cover up

first_imgReferring to himself as the “Strip Club Killer,” Councilman Steve Haderlein said the resolution was a long time coming. “It seems like we were always winning, but we were never able shut them down,” he said. “It’s a good day when the city can remove a nuisance business from a neighborhood. We’re two- for-two now, and this one didn’t cost us a million bucks.” Haderlein was referring to the city’s much shorter battle to keep the Peppermint Gardens strip club from opening earlier this year, also in east Pasadena. To settle litigation brought by that club’s owner, the city spent nearly $5 million to buy the site – a former Shakey’s pizzeria. About $4 million of that amount went to buy the property from owner Greg Hakopyan, with another $1 million to settle litigation. Deleo said he didn’t expect the city to offer to buy Pleasures any time soon. City Hall is anxious about recouping the money spent to purchase Peppermint Gardens after it fell out of escrow Tuesday, City Manager Cynthia Kurtz said.

Pleasures Gentlemen’s Club said Friday its future is uncertain after the adult cabaret agreed in court to end topless dancing and stop serving alcohol by Jan. 25, a move City Attorney Michele Bagneris described as a “final resolution” to four years of legal wrangling. “The judge ordered tops back on” and ruled the club’s permit to sell alcohol will become invalid as of Jan. 25, said Pleasures manager Tony Deleo. Deleo said the club wasn’t interested in fighting the city and has been considering other locations to do business.

In the meantime, Pleasures will post a $10,000 bond, according to a statement released by the city. Pleasures has been locked in a legal melee with the city since a series of so-called “lust parties” were held at the East Foothill Boulevard venue in 2003 by its owner at the time. Undercover police said patrons were having sex. Charges were filed against several dancers and customers. Four years of appeals and court orders later, the state Supreme Court declined to hear an appeal from the club, and the city asked the state to pull its liquor license. last_img read more

Bulldogs win off of Mata’s leg

first_imgWEST COVINA — West Covina High kicker Robert Mata nailed a 42-yard field goal midway through the third quarter to lead the Bulldogs’ football team to a 17-14 win over Division II Paramount. “Mata’s never kicked a field goal that far before,’ head coach Mike Maggiore said. “He never appears to be nervous. He told us he could make it and we believed him.’ The Pirates drove the ball to the Bulldogs’ 26 yard-line late in the fourth quarter after a West Covina fumble, but the drive stalled after a failed 43-yard field goal attempt. Pirates running back Clifford Ross gained nearly 200 yards rushing while scoring two touchdowns but injured himself at the beginning of that drive. The Bulldogs defense played tough in the second half as they shut down the smash-mouth running game of the Pirates.
