Yesterday, I got a very nondescript flyer in the mail. I opened it and it read:

"Satin Exotic Gentlemen's Club. We'd like to hear from you ...."

Well, now. The flyer went on to say, "We have proposed the development of SATIN Gentlemen's Club, 117 W. Pittsburgh Ave. in Milwaukee. We submitted a new license application to the Milwaukee Common Council ..." "The ownership group of SATIN is committed to strong working relationships with neighbors and community stakeholders. We are hosting a public discussion of our proposal and invite all community members to attend."

This meeting is at 1 p.m. Saturday at 117 W. Pittsburgh Ave.

The "we" in the memo are the operators of Silk, 11400 W. Silver Spring Rd.

So, there you have it. A new gentlemen's club seems to be on its way to greater Downtown Milwaukee. Satin would be across from a bar called Ball Game and very near Ginger and Just Art's.

Talk back as you will and learn more here. The license will be up for consideration on September 9.
