No exotic dancing license for Gilford club
At a state liquor commission hearing in the spring of 2012, it was revealed that during a private dance at the club, one dancer said a customer “bit her on the breast,” according to Town Administrator Scott Dunn.
The club’s owners, Willard Drew and Tom Lyons, were represented at Wednesday night’s meeting by their attorney, David Bownes. They were asking for a new entertainment license that would allow exotic dancing and other adult events such as “wet T-shirt” and “hot legs” contests at their club.
In the summer of 2012, Drew asked for a renewal of his entertainment license to include exotic dancing, but two selectmen — Kevin Haves and John O’Brien — voted against it, with one selectman — Gus Benevides — voting to allow it.On Wednesday night, the selectmen approved the entire entertainment license — minus exotic dancers. Dunn said the club owners are expecting to regain the club’s liquor license in coming weeks.
“We plan to run a clean, safe, business,” Bownes said.
