NYC - July 2010
Since my first trip to Portland I have been hearing about some "vegan strip club." Although I have always figured the only gimmick that was "vegan" would be the food, I envisioned art model types with pubic hair and maybe an occasional person with armpit hair dancing around stage. I was finally able to convince my friend to take me, figuring we could play some pool on the lone pool table advertised (straight female friends generally have no desire to be in such places at all), and found myself disappointed. There were no cue sticks, no shrubberies and only a short, greasy menu of vegan items.
