A unanimous Las Vegas City Council torpedoed a liquor license request for the shuttered Crazy Horse Too gentleman’s club, which faces a June 30 deadline to reopen or lose the ability to do so.
Council members said they weren’t satisfied that the would-be buyers had the financing to complete the deal and cited the club’s troubled past in turning down the requested temporary liquor license.
"It’s so nebulous at this time," Mayor Oscar Goodman told an attorney representing David Dupont and Mahesh Patel, the men who are trying to buy the club from the federal government. "The message that you’ve delivered is not satisfactory."
The federal government seized the club and has been trying to sell it to satisfy judgements and fines levied against the former owner, Rick Rizzolo, who pleaded guilty to tax evasion.
