Now that dancers are out of work, one club in Portland, Oregon, figured out a solution: have them deliver food topless while wearing surgical masks
Grody’s boss, Lucky Devil Lounge owner Shon Boulden, stumbled on a solution. Following Gov. Brown’s edict, Boulden tweeted that though the restaurant/strip-club would have to close, they were working on how to keep their employees working, and he joked that he would provide a service where the dancers would deliver food topless. When customers started asking him if he would deliver to their area, “I was like, ‘Holy sh*t, this may be something that actually works,’ ” he says.
From this tweet, Boober Eats was born. For a $30 delivery fee — a sum is split between the club employees — customers can order a burger and fries (or a salad, or a steak, or any variety of dishes) to their homes, where two dancers will show up accompanied by a driver/security guard. Equipped with masks, gloves, and hand sanitizers, the dancers deliver food to the customer’s doorstep, within the six-feet guidelines established by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
