Naked din dins ; New York diners let it all hang out
You know what the most annoying thing about going out to dinner is? Choosing what to wear. Especially women. Women take forever to decide on an outfit.
Which is why it’s good news that the latest craze in New York is to forget all about dining clobber and concentrate on the food. The Optional Clothing Diners Club has got about 50 members and they all go and chow down with it all hanging out. They rent restaurants and sit around chewing the fat (and erm, probably looking at some too) because for them, eating is more comfortable when they’re naked.
John Ordover, who hosts Optional Clothing Diners parties doesn’t think there’s anything wrong with it. “We've never had a restaurant say no to us, and the waiters think nothing of it. If you work in a restaurant in New York City, the chances are you've seen a lot more shocking things than a room full of naked diners," he says.Members of the naked chow club include a nude yoga teacher and stand up comic. Which isn’t exactly what you want when you’re as nature intended – someone who makes jokes about people professionally.
The whole thing begs one questions – how do they tuck their napkins in?
