The King of Porn arrived on Baltimore Street last night, diamond watch sparkling, to promote his new Hustler Club. His entrance into the loud club was less than grand, as an attendant wheeled his gold-plated wheelchair through a back door and to one of the red crushed velvet chairs. Most of the clubgoers hardly noticed -- their attention was turned to the women on the club's three stages. But the throng of reporters waiting to talk to the magazine publisher pounced, circling the expressionless man in the blue suede jacket.

Although employees at The Block's clubs returned Friday night, the bustling business that was typical for Baltimore's hub of strip clubs had not. Most of the more than a dozen strip clubs and adult entertainment shops had been closed since Monday's five-alarm fire, which gutted the Gayety Show World bookstore and damaged two other nightspots. Friday night, however, the city fire marshal permitted businesses on the south side of the 400 block of E. Baltimore St. to reopen. On Friday night, normally busy intersections instead had two police cars parked and lines of yellow tape closing the street to traffic, plus a chain link fence blocking off the south sidewalk between Commerce and Gay streets.

The owners of Larry Flynt's Hustler Club were fined $525 by the city liquor board yesterday for violating the prohibition on sexual touching. Owner Jason C. Mohney was facing four charges of violating the city's adult entertainment rules, and the Board of Liquor License Commissioners found him guilty of two. It also reduced his fines by $400. "I realistically thought we would be found not guilty of everything," said Mohney's attorney, Peter Prevas, adding that he was considering an appeal.

Sorry to break it to you, Baltimore. But you may have seen the last of Larry Flynt 's stripper-mobile. The converted U-Haul truck advertising Flynt's Hustler Club is outfitted with a Plexiglas box, sort of like the Popemobile. But this vehicle is outfitted with a stripper's pole and a bunch of itsy-bitsy-bikini-clad dancers doing – what else? – pole dancing. It was last seen rolling around Camden Yards as a game was letting out, treating fans to more action than the Orioles seem capable of providing.

Before Larry Flynt's Hustler Club opened in downtown Baltimore, the manager said he would run such a clean operation that it would be "just like you go to T.G.I. Friday's" restaurant, except for the nude women on stage. "No touching," promised Jason C. Mohney, 30, trying to distinguish the huge new club from the nearly 20 other strip joints crammed onto The Block, steps from City Hall and police headquarters. Today, the city liquor board is scheduled to hear police allegations that four days after the club's Nov. 12 gala opening, several people -- including Mohney's brother -- violated the city law barring sexual touching.

Larry Flynt, the man who made America safe for pornography, will open a new "gentleman's club" in Baltimore tonight with a promise to add some class to the seedy strip-joint center known as The Block. If nothing else, Larry Flynt's Hustler Club will bring a new architectural feature to the city's tenderloin, one block south of City Hall: a glass dance floor that allows patrons on a lower level to look up performers' skirts. Except they won't be wearing skirts. The club is all nude. "It's not a sleazy operation," the Hustler magazine publisher said in a telephone interview yesterday.

A former strip club owner on The Block in downtown Baltimore did not get a fair price for her business licenses and is entitled to money from Larry Flynt's Hustler Club or the landlord, the trustee in her bankruptcy case contends. Amanda Toth is owed more than the $35,159 she received in cash and debt write-off from her former landlord's company, trustee Brian Goldman wrote in a complaint filed in U.S. Bankruptcy Court in Baltimore. The Hustler Club's company is using her licenses for her defunct Club Custom House.

LARRY FLYNT promised us a classy joint down there on The Block, the Taj Mahal of strip clubs, a place where you could gawk at naked, gyrating women wrapped around dance poles and still feel good about yourself. Of course, bringing class to The Block is not just like putting lipstick on a pig, it's like slipping a nice string of pearls around the pig's neck, too. But ol' Larry, he said his new Hustler Club would be something special. No sleaze, he said. First-class operation, he said.

A Manhattan strip club favored by shock jock Howard Stern, professional athletes and Wall Street financiers could soon have its name emblazoned on Baltimore's newest all-nude venue.

A business deal between two well-known adult entertainment entrepreneurs could bring a sprawling new club to Baltimore's Block, according to documents filed with the city's Zoning Appeals Board, which is set to review the proposal tomorrow.

Gresser owns the building where the bars are located, according to state records, and he wants the Glass Slipper and Mousetrap out by September 2008.

In Baltimore County Men rob bank, lob package over counter; no explosives found LUTHERVILLE -- After robbing a Lutherville bank yesterday morning, two men lobbed a package behind the counter and warned people, "You'd better get out of there," before fleeing with cash, county police said. Employees and customers safely left the First Mariner bank at York and Ridgely roads, police said. The county police bomb squad determined that the package was not an explosive device. A short time after the 9:15 a.m. robbery, police said, two men were arrested near Charles Street and Bellona Avenue.

Hustler magazine publisher Larry Flynt, a man both hailed as a free speech advocate and loathed as a smut peddler, is headed to Baltimore in a big way. Flynt is a partner in what will be the largest "gentleman's club" on The Block, the worn row of strip bars in the heart of downtown. A hot-pink neon sign on East Baltimore Street will blare the presence of Larry Flynt's Hustler Club. The full-nudity show bar, originally to be called Deja Vu, is still months away from completion. Once finished, it will fill the upper two floors of the graceful old Gayety theater building, one block south of City Hall.
