It's a relationship that coined a new term—Bikinigate.
It will also go down as the best undercover assignment a cop could ever ask for. The boys of ABC spent months holed-up in some of the finest "gentleman's clubs" in the valley, jotting down notes about inappropriate goings-on in between lap dances. Apparently, what went on in the Kit Kat Klub was a decades-old mystery. Whew, good thing that one's solved.

Add this to a previous shutdown of wine service in galleries on First Thursdays and an all-out attack on The Flicks for serving wine and beer in a place open to minors (seriously, isn't that what happens in nearly every restaurant ...), and it's an old-fashioned feud.
Tensions have eased a bit in recent months, but we're just waiting for the next blowup. Maybe this time it will be a sting on bloody mary brunches or a SWAT attack on Oktoberfest.
