So... we have the most strip clubs per capita of any city in our fine country (look it up, it's true) and we're sorta sorry/not sorry about it. But when you take in to account that Oregon bars legally have to serve food, you end up with very clique-based venues for music, sex work, dancing, etc, because you have some that serve good food, some bad, some vegan, and some totally not.

To paraphrase Shakespeare, "Two households, both alike in dignity, In fair Portland, where we lay our scene, From ancient grudge break to new mutiny, Where civil blood makes civil hands unclean".

Acropolis's owner owns a cattle ranch so naturally they aren't exactly a vegan restaurant (that would be like Trump owning homeless shelter). Casa Diablo, on the other hand, is all vegan (naturally with waaaay hotter, veggie-infused dancers) and and the two have been feuding for a while. I know, first-world problems, right? But... it's gotten insane. Acropolis actually erected a wall (the irony is that red meat is linked to erectile dysfunction but that's none of my business) to keep out the vegan hoards from showing up after they are drunk and ready for fresh dancers.


Andreas Polizos: Culturally, it’s two different worlds. It really is. They’re vegan, and we’re all about meat. That has to have something to do with the conflict.



Fey: Girls here sometimes smoke outside topless. Maybe that’s why Acrop doesn’t like us? Fey: The fence hasn’t done anything. It has only made it more of a pain in the ass. People are just walking around the fence. It hasn’t stopped the foot traffic or club hopping.


Add to all this that the Acropolis owner (Polizos) is also complaining about the type of customers Diablo brings in, the parallel between this and Trump's great wall was too much to ignore. Such a microcosm of his debauchery and failed logic.

Being a vegetarian, I catch flack from both meat-eaters and vegans. So who do I side with? The one who didn't put up the #ing wall. That's who. Another parallel.

Linky Poo to Portland's Wall

It's like North Korea on that side of the block:



Heh.

 


This is NO LONGER in the Mud Pit!!!

So basically, the vegans moved in next to the steak club in order to annoy them?

That speaks volumes right there.

They moved in next door because the building was for lease and they needed a place for their second location.

And maybe to annoy them.

But... who's annoying who here? The vegans never really complained. It's just the cattle rancher getting all ass-sore because they draw in a vegan crowd. Also the bikers. Vegan bikers. Somehow, we have those guys, too.

The story said the vegans moved in there to annoy their neighbors.

Look, I don't know but when I was in college, my uni had the strip of land that boasted the most bars per square foot in the country at that time. Every possible group had its bar there. So you had all kinds of groups with their own little bit of turf right next to each other, and funny, but you never had anything going on like this.

So even though you would have groups that didn't exactly get along in neighboring bars ... no walls, no police complaints very often, etc.

So, yeah, I kind of think the vegans did move in to be annoying.

You realize it wasn't the vegan strip club that put up the wall, right?

These places need to be on the Portland meet up next month so I can determine the hotness levels in person.

Done. I'll have my boyfriend show you guys around. He knows the best ones. A little too well, if you ask me *ahem*.

Oh, I'll be there! I didn't mean to suggest I wouldn't. He's just more versed in it than I am. I dig the womenfolk, as well.

I'll bring my girlfriend, just to placate you. Hah! She's a derby girl, though... and strong. On second thought, I appoint her as your post-apocalyptic-Masonicus-kills-all-men-Mad-Max-dystopian-world pimp.

Yeah, but I also know that the vegans said they moved their to be annoying. The wall didn't go up until the Acropolis started having trouble with their neighbors, one of whose stated reasons for moving in was to be annoying.

Mending Wall

Something there is that doesn’t love a wall,
That sends the frozen-ground-swell under it,
And spills the upper boulders in the sun;
And makes gaps even two can pass abreast.
The work of hunters is another thing:
I have come after them and made repair
Where they have left not one stone on a stone,
But they would have the rabbit out of hiding,
To please the yelping dogs. The gaps I mean,
No one has seen them made or heard them made,
But at spring mending-time we find them there.
I let my neighbor know beyond the hill;
And on a day we meet to walk the line
And set the wall between us once again.
We keep the wall between us as we go.
To each the boulders that have fallen to each.
And some are loaves and some so nearly balls
We have to use a spell to make them balance:
‘Stay where you are until our backs are turned!'
We wear our fingers rough with handling them.
Oh, just another kind of outdoor game,
One on a side. It comes to little more:
There where it is we do not need the wall:
He is all pine and I am apple orchard.
My apple trees will never get across
And eat the cones under his pines, I tell him.
He only says, ‘Good fences make good neighbors.'
Spring is the mischief in me, and I wonder
If I could put a notion in his head:
'Why do they make good neighbors? Isn’t it
Where there are cows? But here there are no cows.
Before I built a wall I’d ask to know
What I was walling in or walling out,
And to whom I was like to give offense.
Something there is that doesn’t love a wall,
That wants it down.' I could say ‘Elves’ to him,
But it’s not elves exactly, and I’d rather
He said it for himself. I see him there
Bringing a stone grasped firmly by the top
In each hand, like an old-stone savage armed.
He moves in darkness as it seems to me,
Not of woods only and the shade of trees.
He will not go behind his father’s saying,
And he likes having thought of it so well
He says again, ‘Good fences make good neighbors.'


-Robert Frost

I don't think I take in Frost's intent the same way you do.
