Another Boulderism

2009-01-22 21:59:36.480927+00 by ebradway 3 comments

Boulder has one strip club. It's right off the tourist-trap Pearl Street Mall (but you have to enter from the back alley). They were just awarded a liquor license.

Because the liquor board actually has very narrow criteria for opposing a license, the club easily got theirs. Liquor board member, Lisa Spaulding stated:

"This community has a very serious problem, I think. We need the community to come forward and do something about this. But they’re not here."

The irony of that statement is that the club surveyed the community before had and had overwhelming support. The community didn't feel the need to come forward.

From the soon to be gone Rocky Mountain News.

So what's the very serious problem?

  1. Strippers
  2. Alcohol
  3. Lisa

Actually, Boulder has two strip clubs, unless the Bus Stop (up at the north end of town near the U-Haul place and a couple of my favorite restaurants) has closed recently. This is kind of remarkable; I remember making bets about how long Nitro would last when it opened a while ago.

I wouldn't really recommend either spot, even if I were all that into strip joints generally.

Brennen: I wondered about the "Boulder's only downtown strip club" bit. I guess I misread the "downtown" bit and wondered if The Bus Stop is far enough north to be considered outside of the City of Boulder.

It's also the northern terminus of several RTD lines (hence 'The Bus Stop') and right next door to the homeless shelter (so that's where my panhandled dollars go!).
