The Star reports that a subtle but significant change is underway in Bloordale, the steadily gentrifying stretch of Bloor Street between Dufferin and Lansdowne. A group of residents operating under the banner of a new organization called the Bloordale Community Improvement Association has thrown its weight behind a movement to unseat the long-time chair of the neighbourhood’s Business Improvement Area, Spiro Koumoudouros—a guy who also happens to be the owner of one of the area’s best-known businesses, the House of Lancaster, a storied strip club where the menu includes an item called the Gang Bang Platter. Koumoudouros seems nonplussed by the opposition. “If I’m doing a great job,” he told the Star, “what’s the matter [with] the House of Lancaster? I’m in a legitimate business.”
