Bikini with your coffee? In Clovis, a move to get barista beauties to cover up (video)
The Fresno Bee ^ | April 4, 2014 | Marc Benjamin

Posted on 04/08/2014 10:12:54 AM PDT by Enterprise

"It isn't the coffee that's too hot, but the nearly bare baristas of Bottom's Up, a Clovis drive-through coffee shop that has trouble brewing with some neighbors who oppose the business."

Can’t see their bottom halves from outside the drive-in window. I would put in a taller window.

They have a walk up window. Maybe more can be learned from that location.

I lived in WA from 2005-2011 and the complaints about the bikini baristas seemed to be a constant part of the fabric of society around those parts. My county made one stand erect a wooden barrier between them and the highway so the kiddies in passing cars wouldn't catch a glimpse of one of the girls.

I thought it was all strange considering they're passing out condoms to kids in schools, promoting gay lifestyles, allow nude bike races in the city, etc.

Saves on the expense of work clothes. They should work naked, and save even more!

What is the problem? Why would someone take the time out of their personal life to oppose this? Are you that bored?

As I understand it, though people are complaining, the city officials don’t want to be bothered. They tell people not to patronize the business if they object. Based on the video, I think the same way. Take up some other cause.

I agree. I don’t have any offensive, immature things to add here. But I am a female and a Christian and I just don’t see the problem here. How many of these offended people either wear a bikini or let their daughters wear bikinis at the pool??
If I’m offended, I look the other way.

Now I’m in favor of modesty, but this is inside their business.

It would probably save on clothes. But I like my coffee black, with no pubic hairs. But that's just me. I'm not being judgmental.

Clovis, while in New Mexico, is more like a west Texas town in temperment. Think Lubbock or Amarillo and with the Texas bible belt type ranchers nearby.

However, you have the growing Cannon AFB just to the west a few miles and the military boys will go out of their way for a stop like this. So you end up with a culture clash not untypical around a miltary town.

That being said, it is a darn nice little town. The air base, however, is a constant dirt storm (dust storm doesn’t do it justice.) Cannon is a contractor nightmare because they threw ten years worth of expansion in over four and they didn’t build the infrastucture in advance. Good place to loose money trying to make some from what I saw on the base itself.

I think a lot of older, less-attractive women are the ones getting upset about this. Perhaps they see the young gals as some sort of threat to them.

I can see where it might be a public health issue if the barrista is straightening out her underwear and then handling the coffee —

I think you have swerved into something profound, as Rush might say. Yeah, this is about some women showing some skin. But I wonder, how many parents let their kids see Miley Cyrus shows? How many parents are protesting the queering and lesbianization of their children’s school education? There are much more worthy battles for parents to fight.

I might be missing something. Is there an enterprise or product that doesn’t use sex to market their brand?

That wasn't aimed at you. I am putting it in my words that I think the officials are telling people to worry about other things.

Most young ladies that would work there are hairless below the scalp. Just saying...

I think such products would be in the minority. There is one diet food commercial where a dork says something to the effect that "The sex is fantastic." Cringeworthy.

Saw the military uniforms in the video and I thought it was Clovis, NM. I didn’t even know that there was a Clovis, CA. Duh!!!

LOL!

I told my kids to be very very careful about what they post because it can come back to haunt them later when they begin looking for work. For the most part I think they followed my advice.

Too much ado about not much. Haven’t these “protesters” been to a beach lately or a swimming pool? These girls are covering up more than what one can see poolside.

Funny thing though, at the end of the youtube video, it showed a gallery of other Fresno related videos I could click on to see. One of them was a woman, topless, sitting on a couch and milking her right breast into a glass. Guess those Fresno protestors would udderly have a cow if they saw this video.

I was working as a City Manager when one of these popped up in my city. we got quite a few phone calls and then someone stood up at the city council meeting and asked what the city was going to do about it. The mayor and the rest of the council looked to me and I said “nothing”. I said that the city had no ordinance prohibiting this and that it was up to the community whether this placed stayed in business by either buying their product or not and I then added would they rather us take the time to pass a bunch of new laws or let the free market decide.

That was that and the place closed less than 3 months after it opened. Then someone else re-opened it as a regular coffee stand and that place is still in business last I checked.

The funny thing was I got a call from the motel owner across the street complaining and I asked him if anyone complained about his guests using the swimming pool along side the street? His complaint stopped there...
