Contrary to political convention lore, strip clubs close to the Democratic National Convention said business has been normal this week or even slow, perhaps as a result of traffic jams. "It's killing us," said a man who answered the phone at Club Risque in South Philadelphia.
But one place where business is booming: Tinder. The proximity based dating (or, if you prefer, hook-up) site crunched the numbers at our request and reports that Tinder use is up 54 percent in Philadelphia compared to last week.
That's a lot -- but not as much as in Cleveland, where usage increased 82 percent during the Republican National Convention.
