The New Gay Club… The Twinkie Lounge

People are lining up to ride the Ferris wheel, which seems to be our main attraction. We billed it as the world’s tallest but to be perfectly honest, that’s mostly hype. The tallest one is in Las Vegas and is 550 feet. We haven’t measured ours but I’m sure it’s around that size. We only accept Bit Coins so the tourists can download the Karpland App (yes we have an app) and pay through their phones or tablets. We accept Pay Pal as well. Amazing how much the world has changed. Anything of any value is simulated. The upside is that the tourists cannot be robbed of cash. The downside is that their devices can be stolen and their accounts (with the exception of Pay Pal) can be hacked. We are trying to figure out a system to prevent this from happening. It’s not easy. However, we are making progress.

Now for the really exciting news: The latest addition to Karpland is our gay club, The Twinkie Lounge. I named it after my favorite cup cake. The word Twinkie was often used as a derogative slur referring to gay male couples, back in the days when gay bashing was considered a sport. I find the name quite fitting. Many of the umons have expressed an interest in an entertainment night. Drinks will be half price along with a drag show. I am curious to see how the umons interpret drag.

But for right now we are now accepting applications for bartenders and wait staff.

Stay tuned…
