From strippers to chicken strips: How one Oregon club temporarily became ‘Boober Eats’

Lucky Devil Lounge aka Boober Eats

At a time when the in-person and venue-based sex industry remains on more-or-less complete hold, there’ll always be some people managing to make the best of a crisis.

In this case, it’s the dancers of the Lucky Devil Lounge in Portland, Oregon who, deprived of punters, have decided to pivot to food delivery. What started as a joke, with the name of ‘Boober Eats’ (since changed to ‘Lucky Devil Eats’ to avoid any issues in the future, presumably), has seen the club offering its menu of ribs, chicken, pizza and burgers for home delivery, with the dancers doing the delivery.

For around $30 on top of the cost of your order, two of the Lucky Devil’s finest will bring your order right to the door, dressed just as you’d want a stripper delivering your meal to dress.

There are also freebies for emergency first responders – but they have to collect, sans pasty ladies.

“All the calls, people are just giddy and fun,” owner Shon Boulden told The Oregonian. “Sometimes it’s a surprise for someone, sometimes it’s a birthday, sometimes it’s people that are really stoned.”

The dancers, who are able to keep money coming in during the shutdown, are delighted of course – they don’t qualify for any employment protection as they usually work for tips.

Nevertheless, they’re still given the full support of a good employer – they’re driven by a security guard to each drop, and masks, wipes and soap are all available. Plus, as long as the customer is willing to pay, the delivery radius is pretty wide, giving some extra opportunities for girls who have gone from earning hundreds of dollars per shift to zero, almost overnight.

Dancer Kiki said, “For the majority of us, it’s been an almost complete loss of income. I’m here supporting my community and trying to keep maintaining an income flow as best as we can.”

And you can be sure that the idea is making waves when a surprise name change takes place while you’re writing this very article. When that happens, you’re probably doing something right.
