Providence known as " strip club Capitol " of New England.
Mayoral candidate floats closing city strip clubs.
Where have you gone Mo Vaughn?
Mayoral candidate Lorne Adrain tells WPRO that if elected mayor he would look to close the city strip clubs. Huh? That type of talk is practically "un-American " in most parts of the state and considered fighting words on Federal Hill. Cianci, Cicilline and Angel all allowed them and Smiley has a connection to the most famous one. A city that has some some of the highest taxes in the country should be grateful to clubs that attract people from all over the area( Mo ). The Patriots, Red Sox and other Boston teams have all visited the Providence clubs at some point during the season, and visiting teams always pop in for a quick lap dance. Let's hope this becomes a major topic during the debates.
