Strip Club Starts Topless Food Delivery, Classifying It An 'Essential' Business
Portland, OR – A strip club is having its exotic dancers make food deliveries in response to the coronavirus pandemic.
The Lucky Devil Lounge announced March 20 on social media about its plan to send out the dancers with food and calls the service “Boober Eats.”
That’s a play on the Uber passenger service food delivery called Uber Eats.
“Working on keeping our kitchen open for food deliveries and our staff employed,” the strip club posted on its Facebook page. “Dancers will be delivering the food orders topless to your doorstep. Calling it Boober©”
On March 20, the strip club announced the delivery service was continuing.
“Boober Eats is back at it again tonight and all weekend to deliver food and boobs to your doorstep! Taking pre-orders on our website and will begin deliveries at 7pm! For more info, menus and our order forms please visit our website in bio,” Lucky Devil Lounge posted on Twitter.
Like many states, Oregon residents are being told to stay home.
Oregon is mulling a mandatory shutdown of all non-essential businesses, but the strip club's food delivery would be classified as an essential business.
The mayor of Portland and the state’s governor held a press conference on Friday to introduce a policy they called, “stay home, stay healthy,” according to Oregon Public Broadcasting.
However, the state politicians were apparently confused on what exactly the new policy entailed.
Governor Kate Brown and Portland Mayer Ted Wheeler were clear that they want the state’s residents to practice social distancing.
Wheeler mentioned a statewide order that would limit person-to-person contact, according to Oregon Public Broadcasting.
Resident would still be allowed to go to groceries, visiting relatives that are sick and go outside for walks, according to Wheeler.
But he added the rules would be similar to the “shelter-in-place” policy that California has already adopted.
“This is not a lockdown,” Wheeler said, according to Oregon Public Radio. “This will be a ‘stay at home unless it’s absolutely necessary’ order.”
