In a three-way announcement no doubt born of the frontoffices and not the locker rooms, the Milwaukee Bucks, Milwaukee Admirals andMarquette Golden Eagles teamed up to ardently oppose plans to build a stripclub across the street from the downtown BMO Harris Bradley Center the threeshare.The organizations issued a joint letter, addressed to Milwaukee Mayor TomBarrett as well as the city council and other officials, which said they"strongly object to the proposal to lease city-owned space located at 4thand Highland to the operators of a gentleman's club."Downtown Silk MKE LLC has applied for a license to allow AdultEntertainmentStrippersErotic Dance on the ground floor of a city-owned building-- which the teams call "one of two primary parking structures for ourevents" -- that is directly across from the Bradley Center's mainentrances. Silk Exotic is offering 10,000 in monthly rent for 10 years but ithas been denied a tavern license multiple times.The Bucks, Admirals and Golden Eagles were blunt and emphatic in their release,saying "without a doubt" a gentleman's club at the proposed locationwould "change the way our neighborhood is perceived and hurt ourbusiness." The letter mentioned the Bradley Center's attraction as a family-friendlydestination and said customers "would be involuntarily subjected to havingto deal with a strip club's existence when they visit our home."In the letter, Bucks Vice President of Business Administration Ron Walter,Admirals President Jon Greenberg and Marquette Vice President and AthleticDirector Larry Williams said they are "deeply concerned" with theproposal and asked the city to "do everything it can to not erode thestrong sense of community and standing invitation we share with our fans."According to Silk, the outdoor signage of the building would not indicate itwas a strip club. Still, Barrett has previously stated the city does not want sucha tenant, and especially not across the street from the Bradley Center.
