Scores Empire Just Keeps Crumbling

The champagne room has finally gone dry at embattled Manhattan strip club Scores West.

The New York Post reports that authorities from the New York State Liquor Authority (S.L.A.) showed up Wednesday to confiscate the voluptuous 10,000-square-foot venue’s precious liquor license.

(Albeit apparently not before getting a visit from reality TV couple Alex and Simon McCord of "The Real Housewives of New York City" fame.)

The agency’s action follows a prolonged legal battle with club management over the arrests of several Scores West employees on prostitution charges in January 2007.

And the S.L.A.’s not done with Scores yet: Regulators also intend to yank the license of the original Scores on East 60th Street.

Proprietors Richard Goldring and Elliot Osher hold licenses to both clubs.

The strip-club moguls filed for bankruptcy last week citing "mounting tax debt" and a "loss in sales" stemming from its regulatory woes.
