A strip club has got around the coronavirus lockdown by offering a drive-thru service.
The Lucky Devil Lounge in Portland, Oregon, has transformed into Lucky Devil Eats, which has dancers delivering food and performing for customers.
Owner Shon Boulden decided to change the club after it was forced to close in March. He said: “I was like, ‘OK, well let’s keep the kitchen open’ Let’s keep the cooks working at least, and let’s open up the kitchen to food deliveries.”
Dancer Elle Stranger is glad to be given the chance to work so she can provide for her family during the pandemic.
She explained: “When quarantine shutdowns started happening, I was very anxious about my future and my financial security with my family. I am the sole caregiver for my small family, but I was lucky. I’ve been really lucky to pivot.”
In Virginia Beach, Minx Gentleman’s Club has also taken new measures to remain open despite OVID-19 restrictions. According to a report on The Sun, a viral video of a drive-thru strip club on social media showed dancers in bikinis vying for the attention of customers driving slowly through the makeshift outdoor space.
Some dancers were showered in bills thrown through car windows, others grabbed their tips from customers by using a trash picker to reach into vehicles.
Virginia’s Governor Ralph Northam shared details of his plan to gradually reopen the state starting this Friday 15.05.2020, if key metrics show a downward trajectory.
