The Diaries: Conversations from a Portland Strip Club

May 13th “I remember this group brought their mothers in for Mother’s Day.” “What? To a titty bar?” “Swear it’s the truth, they were sitting right there,” pointing indiscriminately at one of the tables.   We’ve spent the last three days in Portland. Redrik and I are sitting at the bar of the Acropolis. It’s … Continue reading
