Did Howard make money off of Scores?
I'm sure a few marbles rolled his way.
He had too with all those plugs.
They had pretty good steaks over there. Also Chuck Zito is a lot smaller in person.
Enough to buy a stripper a ca....oh wait.
They would've been stupid not to try to hook him into some under-the-table endorsement thing.
But, I'm not sure if it actually happened. There was a lot of free VIP service, funny money, catering, and booze. I'm sure total cash and prizes probably added up to about $5,000 - $7,000 per visit, depending on how big the squad was on a given night.
There were some nights that it was well over $100,000 that they got for free. Lonnie would open up the club early for them and let them eat lunch and party all day for free until the club had to open for the night. Not to mention mega parties like Fred's bachelor party that were so out of control that people nearly died at them. Benjy at one party was eating a stripper out with a dental dam. Ralph was designing rooms at one point.
Imagine the cost to open that place six hours early and fully cater a party with strippers and unlimited funny money for twenty guys. And they would do that once every other month it seemed like.
I completely forgot about this period, to be honest. Wow.
Lonnie had to be raking in godmode cake off of the Stern Show's back in order to be so accommodating.
And he gave it all up for a blonde.
Virtually none of which was reported to the IRS. Any IRS agents reading this?
They used to throw Howard and the crew free parties where they were given plenty of "funny money". I wouldn't be surprised if they were given free food and booze as well.
Remember back in those days Howard as well as the rest of the crew were as much into strip clubs as ronnie is today
I would think there would be IRS agents lining up to have that audit job.
I don't know if he made money, but he sure as hell got laid through Scores. In fact, he may have lost money considering he bought one of the Scores girls a car.
It isn't about if he made money. Any gift (like a sizable winning at a raffle) is reportable income and these clowns reported nothing. All the while they advertized scores on the radio without the radio station benefiting. Who benefitted? Loser businessmen who would visit Scores, get drunk and worse, and blow thousands before they returned to their senses.
he got pussy payments...
Are sexual favors taxable?
