...clubs complaining that "it affects their cash flow as the economy is reeling" is ignorant. Like $5/person will make or break them, ::). Clubs complaining about the principle is right. I never heard of a strip club where a child was molested. However, i've heard of churches and schools where children were molested or had sexual relations. The clubs should demand that those entering (church members and parents of the school children) also be taxed since there is a link to "sexual assaults". Just a thought.

For Dancers that want to know which clubs are better to work at in Dallas, those which paid the most tax money have the most customer traffic. This is at the bottom of mystermans link.

What Dallas strip clubs have paid to the state for a $5-per-patron fee that is held up in a court battle:

The Lodge: $604,855
The Clubhouse and Chicas Bonitas: $573,510
Silver City: $338,830
Spearmint Rhino Gentlemen's Club: $318,585
The Men's Club of Dallas: $205,780
Palace Cabaret: $154,823
Rick's Cabaret: $108,545
Jaguar's Gold Club: $107,870
La Zona Rosa Cabaret: $78,910
The King Lounge Inc: $77,600
Platinum Club II: $37,710
Club Onyx: $17,210
Bombshells Cabaret: $615

Yep, 123 sounds strange, unless...Sorry for being ignorant but is
$5 for patron/per visit or $5 for patron period (repeated visits from same customer will not results in extra charge)?

...my experience has been per visit. The front door person may let you go outside and make a call and let you back in without paying again.

Also, some clubs may not be reporting their numbers accurately. There was a city (cant remember which city/state) that put up a hidden camera on a city utility pole near the front of a club. They counted how many people entered the club for that month then checked what they reported for tax and of course the club under-reported.

Strip Clubs side of view in this article is a little more then the states side about this illegal tax in the state of Texas.
