The Blow-Up Doll Diners at The Open Hearth restaurant in South Carolina!
Move over, fancy dining mannequins of The Little Inn at Little Washington, here comes the blow-up doll diners of The Open Hearth restaurant in Taylor, SC. The Open Hearth closed up their dining room on March 17 for obvious reasons, but this week they have re-opened their insides with rules, like diners have to be seated six feet apart. So to make shit not so empty, they have filled the place with blow-up dolls bought on Amazon and dressed them up in casual Friday Boca Raton retiree glamour.
Paula Starr Melehes, who owns The Open Hearth with her husband Jimmy, tell WYTFF that they’ll of course follow all the guidelines including keeping customers six feet apart, making employees wear masks, and taking the temperatures of customers and employees before they go into the joint. Paula and Jimmy didn’t want ugly yellow tape all over the place, so they came up with idea the fill empty tables with plastic bitches who have air for brains. The Open Hearth should go all the way with it and advertise this by saying, “Now you can know what it feels like to eat with the Real Housewives of Orange County!”
If you’re thinking that you can make your way to The Open Hearth restaurant, pick up a hot blow-up doll and take that trick into the alley for some fuck time fun (after Lysol-ing them down of course), you can’t because they’ve got Barbie doll crotches.
She ordered blow-up dolls from Amazon — “the G-rated kind,” she said — dressed them up and has them seated at all of the tables that won’t be occupied by real customers.
“My grandson told me they look kind of creepy,” Melehes said. “But, I think, when people walk in, they’re going to laugh.”
You know, sitting in an almost-empty restaurant and surrounded by servers in masks (who are not getting paid enough for that shit) and unfuckable blow-up dolls seems like a true 2020 dining experience.
