A new fine dining club is now joining the landscape of downtown Shreveport. The Last Supper Dining Club is an exclusive club based on the Christian faith. The target audience is primarily church-goers.
"You know that's one of the amenities of The Last Supper Dining Club is for that demographic to have a place that's nice, first class, that you can bring a guest minister to, and not have to worry about the environment of the casino, somebody walking by that may be drunk or loud and noisy," says owner, Theudus Allen.
The application fee and initiation fee is a one-time fee of $300, and then the ongoing reoccuring charges is $50 a month for in-own memberships and $25 a month for out of town memberships. Just like any private club there's an application process.
"The purpose of the application is to make sure that we are accepting people into our club that uphold... that have the same beliefs that we do, that are understanding of what we're trying to accomplish," says Allen. "The fine dining environment, the exclusitivity, but also keeping the Christian values."
Well, all that having to eat with the poor was always a big ask if you ask me. But I hope Theudus isn't expecting me to sign up. I can't imagine anything more boring. Heck, they don't even serve "hard liquor," and I bet there's no lap dancing.
