Preliminary approval for Taj Mahal casino strip club

    It’s time for a little segment we like to call, “Betcha never thought you’d see this on public media.”

    Dancers at a proposed strip club at Atlantic City’s Taj Mahal casino can strip, but only down to G-strings and pasties.

    That’s the latest from the Associated Press, which reports the New Jersey Gaming Enforcement Division has given preliminary approval for a Scores upscale gentlemen’s club inside the casino. Lap dances and the simulation of sexual activity would be prohibited.

    The state ruling only covers the concept of whether such a club can open. Scores still needs a liquor license.
