Notorious Seattle strip club to reopen

SEATTLE — Nearly five months after Uncle Sam sold it, one of Seattle’s most notorious strip clubs is reopening its doors.

Rick’s Nightclub, a legacy of the organized-crime organization under Frank Colacurcio Sr., will reopen its doors Friday under the name Dreamgirls at Rick’s.

Club manager Andy Wallock says he’s looking forward to providing adult entertainment at such a “historic” site.

The strip club on Lake City Way was sold in June for $2.35 million at a federal auction. It was seized as part of a wide ranging racketeering investigation of the now-deceased Colacurcio. As part of the probe, authorities closed and demolished a strip club on Highway 99 south of Everett.
