“At 4:43 a.m. on Sunday December 21, 2014 the Lodi Police Department responded to the Satin Dolls located at 230 Route 17 South in the Borough of Lodi to investigate a reported robbery,” the LPD press release reveals. “It was determined that two men armed with shotguns entered the premises and robbed the business of approximately $30,000.00 dollars. The actors then fled in an unknown direction.” Actors? That’s funny! The Sopranos used the Satin Dolls club as the set for the Bada-Bing Club. If the shotgun guys had [been fictional and] burst in on Tony et al., there would have been a total different denouement. Know what I mean?

  1. Lodi is far enough from Sacremento that if elected officials wanted to carouse out of the limelight they could . And its not so far as to be inconvient.

    30 grand cash in a skin club. Wonder if that’s just one days reciepts?

      • You sound all to familiar with the place. As one attorney to the other, ropingdown, allow me to advise you of your Fifth Amendment right against self-incrimination.

      • I blame my brain fart on falling in with bad company. Before i accidentally stumbled onto TTAG a couple of years ago I barely knew what a computer key board was. Now i’m doing TTAG and talking on a phone at the same time trying to arrange a play date with grandkids.

        The high way numbers made no sense in relation to Lodi CA but i glossed over them. My bad.

  2. Glad yous guys cleared that up! I could not imagine any location near Lodi, CA as suitable for filming scenes in New Jersey! And $30 grand is a nice cash flow for a weekend at a strip club, must be one helluva joint.

    • $30K for a Saturday? OK for a small club in a mid-size market. As a Fri/Sat haul? Sounds like a lot of money, but in the club business, that’s Very weak tea.

      There’s the door, booze, VIP, and rent from the entertainers (varies by market). A decent size club will do at least $5K per weekend night in door alone (500 @$10). If they only average $50 per head in liquor, that’s $25K. Rent from the entertainers is around $100/per, and with say 5 stages, you’ll have 40 girls on. That’s another $4K. Privates and VIP rooms are big coin in the right club. A whale will drop $5K,10K, 50K in a single night. Sometimes more. The margins on a $1200+ bottle of Cristal are quite nice.

      A decent-sized club will gross $100K+ per week. But there’s lots of (legit) expenses that go with it. It’s just a big nightclub with some nekkid women.

      Of course, The Bing! was a little roadside dump in NJ. So, $30K for them might be good money.
