Z Bone's Headline Nudes For 2004

How can I even pretend to be a real e-zine without a page for headlines!? This section will contain newsworthy events related to the strip club business, especially as it pertains to Los Angeles. Events covered by the traditional media will still be in the Media Bites section. This section will be reported by myself and other reporters for Z Bone.

Well, here you go and here we go. One step closer to being just another boring e-zine. Yeah, right!

LA Compromises With Strip Club Owners

January 12, 2004

After the strip clubs collected the needed signatures last year to put the original ordinance on hold, the LA City Council has removed the so-called anti-lap dancing portion from the original ordinance.

The new ordinance is different in 2 main sections.  The paragraph containing the rule that dancers must be 6' away from customers at all times, has been removed.  This was the paragraph that would have ended lap dancing.  Secondly, the wording of the so-called "no VIP room" paragraph has been slightly modified, allowing multi-room clubs to remain as is.  However, VIP rooms, private booths, and cubicles are not allowed, as was the case in the original ordinance.

The other items of interest, such as the yearly renewal of permits, and the requirement of bonded uniformed security guards, still remain in the revised ordinance.

The revised ordinance will take effect as of January 11, 2004.  The physical changes to the clubs(e.g. removal of VIP rooms) must be completed within 180 days of that date.
