Skip to comments.Bikini with your coffee? In Clovis, a move to get barista beauties to cover up (video)

"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."
(Excerpt) Read more at fresnobee.com ...
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 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.
Hotties in bikinis serving coffee...
And there’s a problem with this????
I’m not seeing the problem...
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.
More covered up then Hooters girls.
See post #8.
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.
Pictures. I need pictures if I am to form any sort of opinion.
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.
This was posted yesterday. In that posting there were some photos. This one has a video linked on the article page.
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.
“...They tell people not to patronize the business if they object....”
“...Take up some other cause....”
Not a cause. A comment. Relax.
EEO applies...be careful what you ask for!
“...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. ...”
Human nature. You’re probably right on the money.
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.
This is Clovis California. Next to Fresno, the home of Free Republic.
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.
“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.”
Most young ladies that would work there are hairless below the scalp. Just saying...
“...That wasn’t aimed at you...”
Wasn’t clear. My bad.
No harm, no foul.
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.
OK - :)
Peace is always a better option! Hahah!
The only person I would trust to inspect and verify would be Laz.
I think this Clovis is in California, near Fresno.
True. I shudder at the thought of some people who might want to work there.
If nothing else, that’s some EXPENSIVE coffee!
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!!!
The tow cities had a one time high school football series years ago. Clovis NM won one game, and Clovis hi CA won one.
tow = two (Grrr)
I must have read this sentence five times before I finally got it.
Works for me I am a boob man
from what I hear pubic hair not in style as of late my nieces post way too much about themselves on Facebook
Is Jim Thompson out on a reconeses mission
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.
I think I saw Mr. Thompson there in mufti.
That kind of makes the brain stop right there.
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.
Hey, the coffee’s got no taste so they gotta do something to attract custom...
p.s., my points / questions were directed toward the article, not you :)
After being forced to put up with “gay marriage” and seeing bakers sued into making them cakes IT IS IMPOSSIBLE FOR ME TO CARE ABOUT SKIMPILY ATTIRED BARISTAS.
“Hotties in bikinis serving coffee...
And theres a problem with this????”
Yes there is. They are really men.
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...
