Sugar's and Rick's may permanently close in plea deal

Friday, April 23, 2010

According to an April 22 story by reporter Mike Carter in the Seattle Times, a plea deal with three key members of Frank Colacurcio Sr.'s strip club operation could permanently shut down all four clubs: Sugar's on Aurora in Shoreline and Rick's on Lake City Way near the Shoreline and Lake Forest Park city limits, as well as Honey's in Everett and Fox's in Parkland, Pierce County.

Carter writes, "If it happens, it would mean a victory for federal and local law-enforcement officials who for years have been trying to close down Frank Colacurcio Sr.'s operations, long alleged to be fronts for prostitution and money laundering. It would also make good on a promise made by the U.S. Attorney's Office in July, when sweeping indictments against the men were unsealed, that authorities finally had enough ammunition to dismantle the Colacurcio nude-dancing empire."

This would be a fantastic change for our city and Shorewood High. Glad to see fate has done the right thing!

Sugars has been closed for MONTHS, since the initial raid, where have you been if you have been taking your kid to school?

I agree with both commenters. As a student at Shorewood who has to walk to school crossing Aurora, it would be GREAT to get rid of Sugar's! Now work on the casino's and that strip of Aurora is good!
