Bikini-clad baristas brewing up controversy in NorCal
KCRA Sacramento ^ | Apr 7th, 2014 | Unattributed

CLOVIS, Calif. —Bikini-clad baristas who work at a Northern California coffee shop are brewing up a bit of controversy with some folks upset with their attire.

Residents in Clovis are collecting signatures for a petition telling City Council members that they want the servers at the Bottom's Up to either cover up or close up shop permanently, the Fresno Bee reported.

Candice Eslick, 50, who lives a block from the shop that began operating in January, said the attire choices of servers are not right for her neighborhood or the city. She hopes to deliver a petition to the City Council on April 21.

Meanwhile, Clovis City Attorney David Wolfe said the city probably can't do anything about the business. Wolfe said residents called the city after a TV story on the shop last month featured a barista apparently showing too much skin when she bent over.

What do you want to bet that Ms. Eslick would make a freight train take a dirt road?

Clovis is in the heart of the Central Valley adjacent to Fresno, it is NOT in NorCal.

Front or back? It matters... Front is just cleavage, back might be more of an invitation to mischief...

look, they’ll have gay guys in bikinis pretty soon and you’ll get all the frags there at all hrs of the day, and then maybe you’ll understand the whole thing.....because until it upsets their own values its just a big joke to some freepers....

We've got two with a few blocks of each other. Ones topless the other is some lingerie type joint. The topless one has a line all the time.

Clovis is NOT in northern California. It is in Central California. It is a suburb of Fresno. I’m visiting here right now, standidn watch over my 100 1/2 year old mother and this is the talk of the town.

For awhile they had a topless car wash in Moscow, Idaho, staffed by buxom co-eds, because the city fathers never thought to pass a law against it. I’m told it made a LOT of money during its short existence.

There are “truck” stops in South Carolina with nude waitresses. (I only saw the sign. I didn’t stop.) But I can imagine eating lunch and the waitress brings the food to the next table and bends over. I do not want to look at some girl’s ass while I’m eating an open face roast beef and gravy sandwich.

And I don’t want to look at some girl’s “girls” while holding hot coffee!

Back when I lived in Fort Lauderdale, they had “R Donuts”, a topless donut shop.

Never went there, myself.

Not my thing, but no one’s forcing me to go there.

Personally, I want my waitress to look like a tv sitcom Jewish grandma from Brooklyn. You know, the kind that tells you “Have seconds! You’ll never meet a nice girl to marry unless you put some meat on your bones!”

No doubt the waitresses played ring-toss with ‘em. Of course, they were just plain donuts when they were pitched and the cops provided the glaze.

Oh for heaven’s sake! I remember the bruhaha over topless waitresses back in 1967, and when I went to Las Vegas (2001) I saw lots of bikini clad girls operating the tables at Caesar’s Palace.

For a "liberal" city like Seattle, this is a huge issue.

Apparently the girls are not just bikini wearing, they were turning tricks on the side.

Even die-hard leftists aren't down with that, apparently.

The Rodeo Coffee Shop. Classic American cafe. Good breakfasts (but all their clothes on).

Good luck with your mom. 100.5 is pretty amazing!

Too bad the women aren’t homosexual males - the very same people complaining about the ladies would be egging on the men even if the fellows were wearing nothing save a b*tt plug and a chain around their willies.
