Prompted by City Attorney Dennis Herrera, notorious Tenderloin strip club Pink Diamonds was forced to shut its doors yesterday. According to SFGate, a judge ordered the, eh, burlesque club to officially close for a year and "directed its operator, Damone H. Smith, to pay at least $688,500 in fines after he violated a court agreement to bring the club into compliance with local and state laws." (The club actually ceased operations in early October, but this final nail in the strip pole, a request Herrera made to a SF Superior Court judge on on Sept. 30, made the closure official.)

Pink Diamonds, if you recall, played host to a June 27, 2009 murder in addition to other lawlessness that required more than 230 service calls by the San Francisco Police Department this year alone.
