Weasel’s Exotic Entertainment club destroyed in fire
Sadly, things seem to have gone from bad to worse for Don “Weasel” DalPonte, owner of Weasel’s Exotic Entertainment club in Eagle River, Wisconsin. In February 2011, DalPonte was the victim of a home invasion, during which he was shot and beaten by two men wearing ski masks. Though he originally appeared to have recovered quickly from these injuries, DalPonte was admitted to the hospital in December 2011, complaining of headaches and memory loss, among other issues.
In what can only be described as a tragic case of bad luck, while DalPonte was in the hospital this past New Year’s Eve, 2011, his adult nightclub, Weasel’s, burned to the ground. The fire broke out just after 7 p.m. on December 31, and thankfully, the club was closed at the time of the fire.
