USA: Portland strip club offers topless food delivery amid coronavirus closures

United States, Portland
March 29, 2020 at 06:20 GMT +00:00 · Published

A strip club in Portland, Oregon has been trying to keep business afloat by offering "topless" food delivery, as footage filmed on Friday shows.

"I posted some stuff on our social media saying: "We regret to inform you that we have to close the bar down, we're currently working on keeping our kitchen open for food delivery." Then I joked around saying: "We're going to do all our food deliveries with topless dancers and we're going to call it Boober," said Shon Boulden, the Lucky Devil Lounge club's owner.

For a fee of $30 residents can get food delivered by two striptease dancers accompanied by a van driver, also acting as a security guard.

"There's a lot of not just strip clubs but businesses just have left their employees to the dust saying good luck. We're all getting employed and it's been a great way to get to know everybody and just bring a little bit of joy and hope in such a time of chaos," said Lou, one of the striptease dancers.

The owner said the offer had proven to be a success with people calling from all over the state trying to arrange deliveries.
