Scores Strip Club Closing

The naked truth is that the economy is affecting everyone -- even strip clubs.
The Upper East Side club Scores survived FBI raids and Rudy Giuliani's anti-porn crusade -- but it is shutting down at the end of the year.
Owners blamed a weak economy and the possibility that the club could lose its liquor license.
Co-owner Elliot Osher said another club with new owners would open in its place at the foot of the Queensboro Bridge.
State authorities this year revoked the liquor license for a spinoff version of the club on Manhattan's West Side after a police raid led to prostitution charges against several dancers.
Scores first opened on East 60th Street in 1991. A series of club spinoffs opened around the country, but many have since closed.

I am at a loss for words here. I promised my self I wouldn't cry during this blog...
