Markets in Everything: Mobile Booty Lounge

Mobile food trucks are becoming popular in The Motor City, here are some recent CD posts here and here.  And now Detroit Lions' fans have been enjoying another form of controversial mobile commerce operating near Ford Field during Lions home game - a mobile strip club known as the "Booty Lounge" (see photo above).  

For a $10 donation, tailgating Lions fans can enter the Booty Lounge bus that features two stages, steel dancing poles, and a smoke machine.  Now the Detroit Police Department is investigating and may try to stop the Booty Lounge from operating at the next home game versus the Chicago Bears on October 10, here are some news reports here and here

Demand would seem highly correlated to the shape of the Supply Curve.

They can shake it, but only Che can make it: Guerrilla food in heart of glamorous Los Angeles. You gotta love the irony.

As I have said many time, state and local governments are the most repressive of commercial and civil rights. Usually in service of established trades, industries, businesses and unions who want no competition. Or acting as unwanted morals police.

The sooner we de-license lawyers, the better.
