Eat Locally, Strip Globally: Canadian Strip Club Offers Quality, Locally-Sourced Menu

Apparently, there’s only one thing that Vancouver residents love more than watching strippers work it on onstage — and that’s munching on a selection of locally-sourced Vancouver cuisine while enjoying the show. Vancouver gentleman’s club No. 5 Orange discovered the surprising overlap between local food fans and strip club aficionados when they gave their normal food selections a locally-sourced revamp earlier this year. The environmentally friendly overhaul paid off big time, and  according to CTV News, No. 5 Orange’s food-generated revenue has “more than doubled” since the changes.

Of course, credit has to be paid to the local master chef that No. 5 Orange hired to oversee the switch. Chef Stuart Irving, a longtime fan of the gentleman’s club he describes as “Cheers, but with boobs,” took painstaking care to make the menu reflect the quality service and beautiful presentation that No. 5 Orange serves on and off the pole. The new menu features a series of gourmet selections including “Satay Kabobs of either free-range chicken, double-smoked pork belly, or wild sea prawn,” which will make it pretty hard to tell if customers are drooling over the food . . . or the performers. We’re going to take a wild guess and assume that it’ll be a combination of both, and we’re hoping that strip clubs worldwide follow No. 5 Orange’s example. Eat locally, strip globally? Sounds like a plan to us.

Craving: The Seafood Basket

I’m absolutely starving right now, and I think a lot of people can relate. It’s that time of day (this post is going up at about 10:13 a.m. on a weekday), breakfast is wearing off and all I can think about is where I want to eat lunch Sure enough, I start my prowl for foods. Here is a seafood basket photographed by The Food Pornographer chock full of fries, calamari rings, sea shanties (apparently they’re like seafood cakes, filled with vegetables like carrots, peas and corn) and busty prawns (District 9 hellllo!). This picture definitely has me drooling, even if I do slightly have the image of the socially unaccepted prawns in my head. Eat on!
