Bada Bing Whacked

The strip club from The Sopranos sleeps with the fishes. Satin Dolls, the New Jersey club known as the Bada Bing from HBO’s Sopranos mafia drama, has been ordered to cease operations because of its real-life Mafia ties.
Anthony Cardinalle, a gangster connected to the Genovese crime family defied an order from the Division of Alcohol Beverage Control that barred his family from running the Satin Dolls and another lounge, A.J.’s Gentleman’s Club. The owners of the clubs, who were members of Cardinalle’s mob family, also “failed to account for large amounts of cash flowing in and out of the businesses.”

The federal government indicted Cardinalle—'Tony'—in January 2013 for his part in a conspiracy related to the waste-disposal industry in New Jersey and New York.

Cardinalle pleaded guilty to racketeering conspiracy and conspiracy to commit extortion.
