Not Envy gentlemen's club in Tampa, Florida, but you get the idea.

The new year has already given us a man who assaulted a cashier at a St. Petersburg McDonald's, and now Tampa has its first strip club death of 2019.

Tampa Police officials said that they are investigating a death at Club Envy gentlemen's club, located at 3447 Kennedy Boulevard W., where police say a victim and a suspect were involved in an altercation early Thursday morning.

The victim was knocked to the ground and died from his injuries at Tampa General Hospital, according to WFTS. The names of the victim and suspect have not been released.

Police say there is no threat to the community at this time, and we’re asking 2019 to pump the brakes a little, man.

Kind of makes sense for the 16th most sinful city in America, right?
