Interestingly, what has been lost by many of the news stories is the real difference between some coffee businesses that wear nice “beach” attire vs those that actually push the limits by wearing G-strings and pasties or no pasties and a scarf. As a resident, business owner and competitor to this type of business it is an interesting issue. I frankly don’t mind the bikini businesses being next door, but I do have serious concerns over the lack of enforcement to the businesses that wear pasties or less. Though they have actually improved our Coffee/Drink Sales, I constantly hear of parents who are upset about pulling up or driving by and being surprised by what was seen. We have experienced men pulling in to our Classic Coffee Drive Thru and say “Oh, your not naked? I was looking for the girls with no tops!” or they experience other more disgusting comments or behaviors. I personally believe there should be some fence and signage requirements to help block the view of those that choose to not partake in the peep show. My own 12 year old son even has to peek or comment every day he drives by or visits our business “I wonder if the girls next door are naked today?” Our business has chosen to stay with offering great coffee, great service and wonderful girls who take pride in what they wear and appreciate the community supporting our growth. As an aside, there is a marked difference of their business traffic on the days when they wear regular Bikini’s vs the days when they wear much less. What does that tell you?
I find it astonishing that the City can enforce how many balloon’s a business can place out, but won’t enforce whether others balloons are properly covered! I am confident the City will have to enforce their existing laws regarding Adult Entertainment as this will begin to spread to other businesses if not regulated properly.
The only people I feel sorry for are the women who reduce them selves to this and the embarrassing conduct of the men who gawk!!
