Ballroom dancing or nude dancing?
Those are the two types of dancing being proposed for a seafood restaurant in Northridge.
Seven for the Money Inc., a Los Angeles firm, has applied for a permit to operate a combination restaurant and juice bar featuring nude dancers at the site of The Breakers Seafood Co., located near the corner of Corbin Avenue and Nordhoff Street.
In a permit application filed with the city Department of Planning, the firm requests permission to operate a nude dancing establishment between 11 a.m. and 2 a.m. Sunday through Thursday and between 11 a.m. and 4 a.m. Friday and Saturday.
Seven for the Money does not yet own the restaurant but has expressed an interest in purchasing the property. They have proposed operating a juice bar because state law prohibits nude dancing establishments from serving alcohol. Company officials could not be reached Friday.
Meanwhile, the owner of the restaurant, Western States Enterprises, has reapplied for permits which already allow a variety of dancing, from ballroom to country-Western to rock. A hearing on both permit requests has been scheduled for 2:30 p.m. July 29 at the Van Nuys Woman's Club.
Councilman Hal Bernson, who represents the area, has told planning officials that he opposes the request for nude dancing at the restaurant.
