So I know this is a bit off topic, away from my usual vegan and vegetarian restaurant reviews and recipes…but this was just too hilarious not to mention. Oh, and please don’t let your kids read this one! Unless you don’t care. Because in that case, if you don’t care, neither do I!
So apparently this joint is “the first vegan strip club in the entire world.” Which, when you think about it, it probably is. And where oh where does this place reside in the world? None other than hippie-ville, Portland, Oregon. I say that with much tenderness by the way. I think Oregon is a great state, and Portland in particular is one of the most progressive cities in the U.S. in terms of having so many vegetarian, vegan and just overall environmental causes and of course, dining options, going on up there. So it’s actually no surprise that they are home to the world’s first vegan strip club.
“(It’s) vixens, not veal, and sizzle, not steak,” Diablo said. “We put the meat on the pole, not on the plate.”
Hmmm…I’m not in a position to make any sort of judgement calls, but I’m having mixed feelings about this place? It’s hilarious, yes. It’s great, in terms of a new vegan venture. I just feel that maybe it’s a little paradoxical in a way…maybe because I’m a female, and a feminist. [OOoooooO...uhhh...did I say the "F" word?] Overall though, I guess it’s no harm, no foul, since it’s not like he’s making these girls dance against their will. So whatevas yo! Any thoughts or comments???
