Attention NBA players: Legendary New York strip club Scores has likely offered up its final lap dance. Scores will close before the start of the new year.
"It's over; it is what it is," said Scores lawyer George Weinbaum. Co-owner Elliot Osher confirmed the closing.
A weak economy, the loss of the W. 27th St. Scores' liquor license and the possibility the E. 60th St. joint would lose its booze ticket all helped do in the flesh factory.
The West Side Scores has been closed since May. In March, the the State Liquor Authority of New York revoked Scores West's liquor license after undercover cops described widespread back room prostitution at the West Side location.
What does the closing of Scores have to do with basketball? Not much, really. But since Scores was a magnet for NBA players, guys in the league will have to find a new Manhattan strip joint to frequent.
