Cabaret Update - The news of its death may be greatly exaggerated
In our never ending battle to follow the important news of adult entertainment, 20thsenatorial has done some follow-up research on yesterday's report of the closing of the Cabaret. Apparently, the Cabaret is not closing its doors --- not yet or maybe just part-way.
20thsenatorial has learned that the Cabaret will remain open for the time being. The owners are apparently trying to lease the bar operations, and not for an adult entertainment establishment, but for a liquor establishment without the scantly-clad women show. So for the first time in fifteen years, the Cabaret may return to its roots. (The Cabaret was originally "The Crackerbox." from c.1978 to c.1991). In the mean time, the owners are considering a cut back schedule of a few nights a week, instead of seven.
What does this mean to you? What does this mean to me? What does this mean to the average man on the street in the 20th Senatorial District?
20th Senatorial has learned that the owners gave up on their Kingston location for an "all-nude" club after being beaten time and again in courts by Haggerty's administration. They threw up their hands and dumped mid-six figure money into developing "The Carousel" in Plymouth Township. The had plans of doing this in Kingston, and had spent thousands partitioning the establishment and other remodeling to have an "all-nude" section, but their unsuccessful legal battles with Haggerty lead them to look elsewhere.
The guy quoted in yesterday's blog was happy to hear the Cabaret was not leaving, at least for now. He said, "Whew! I'm glad to hear that. I don't adapt to change well, and the thought of finding a new watering hole was troubling. At least I can put it off for a while."
