TAMPA, FL—Richard Brainard, owner of Shakerz Gentlemen’s Lounge, announced plans Monday to hire more minorities at his Kennedy Boulevard nightspot.
“We’re looking for some Asians, mainly, but I think we could also use two or three Puerto Ricans and a light-skinned black girl,” Brainard said. “Man, those Puerto Ricans can dance. Makes you wish you were 22 again, I’ll tell you that.”
Brainard said the new hires will help Shakerz better represent his community.
“We need a lineup that’s a little more Tampa,” Brainard said. “That means we need more Mexicans. Sometimes it’s hard to find one with a decent pair of tits, but that’s not going to stop me. We’re doing this because it’s right, not because it’s easy.”
