Boober Eats Name Changed To Lucky Devil Eats

The Lucky Devil Lounge gentlemen’s club dancers keep dishing it out to help keep Portland fed during the COVID-19 shutdown.
The enterprising gentlemen’s club in Portland, Oregon, struck upon a novel idea to stay open and keep its employees employed during this unusual time: utilize its dancers to deliver food from its kitchen to its customers.
So it is dispatching its girls to people’s homes and apartments in their work attire – which isn’t much; in fact they are topless tho with pasties –to put on a show to earn a little dough. All that’s missing is a pole.
It takes the words “delivery service” to a whole new level.
The service was originally called Boober Eats, but that went flat when it learned another establishment had been using that name prior to Lucky Devil Lounge adopting it. Still, it’s been so popular that national news outlets, among them Rolling Stone and Huffington Post, have posted stories.
PubClub.com caught up with owner to see how things are going a couple weeks after Lucky Devil Lounge started delivering its brand of entertainment along with its food.
“We have to use Lucky Devil Eats, as our old name sounded close to another delivery service,” said Josh Svaren. “Although our style is much different and we are only serving our own food at this time.
“We are operating on a day-to-day basis with somewhat of a schedule for staff to look forward to (coming to work). This week (end of March-first of April) we are going with Tuesday-Saturday, 6-11 p.m.
“We have a lot of activity right now. here are many people who send food as gifts to people with birthdays and anniversaries. People also like to support this industry and our talented staff, too.”
Hee would also like to send a message out to landlords and banks to help employees during this challenging time.
Making rent and paying bills are “the one thing on all the workers’ minds,” he stressed. “That’s why people are struggling with stress. The $1,200 (from the federal stimulus plan) doesn’t pay most people’s rent or mortgage.”
