You do realize that they've been operating as Outer Limits since September 2009, and that they've been operating their Silk brand of clubs since, what was it, 2003? You don't get money like that or spend money like that if you're mismanaging clubs and attracting negative attention.
Funny that almost 40 years ago, Diamond Don's (aka Diamond Don's Follies Bergiere Nightclub, formerly known as the White Hare)
, which I believe was located in the very same building where 'Silk Madison' is now, was largely considered "non-controversial" (that controversy was reserved towards the Whiskey A Go-Go off of Todd Dr and the Beltline)
Quote of the article; "The [Town] Supervisors contacted all agreed that nude dancing seems to be a fad which they expect to pass within a couple of years."
And now, fast-forward nearly 40 years, and you've got a multi-million $ establishment in Middleton!
Anyways, glad they were able to remodel even after the town of Middleton frivolously blocked them from expanding the building, which I think Silk had originally intended to do (either by building up or out).
Forgive me if I'm not a fan of this puritan social engineering experiment prevalent in Madison and Dane County. The area's hyper-democracy seems to make people believe they have a right to have their hands in just about everything. *Although, the smoking ban and Madison restricting conceal & carry on private property is an example of the area's "hyper-democracy" doing it's fair share of good, ensuring the safety of it's residents, which is something I'm all for.
It's regulating morality & personal choice that I'm not a big fan of.
