‘Sopranos’ strip club robbed for 2nd time in 2 weeks
LODI (AP) — The North Jersey strip club that was the real-life stand-in for the Bada Bing on HBO's "Sopranos" has been hit by criminals again.
Satin Dolls in Lodi was robbed by two armed men a few days before Christmas. Now, police say someone broke into the club early Friday morning.
Police tell The Record that the break-in occurred between 2 a.m. and 5 a.m. Friday. The would-be thieves smashed through the club's glass front door and pried open the office door to get to a safe, but didn't take anything.
The earlier robbery cost the club about $30,000.
The Bada Bing was seen frequently on the show, which ran on HBO from 1999 to 2007.
