Bikini Coffee Shops? Why I never.

Five Everett bikini baristas charged with prostitution
Investigators saw the women expose their crotches, lick whipped cream off their co-workers' private parts and pose naked for pictures inside the Grab-n-Go Espresso stand at 8015 Broadway. Detectives also witnessed some of the women charging customers to touch their bare breasts and naked buttocks. Touching of that kind, for pay, falls under the city's definition of prostitution. [...]

An Everett detective took a city prosecutor to the stand to witness firsthand the activities of the baristas. During that visit, two women allegedly engaged in a "whipped cream show" in which they sprayed whipped cream on each other and licked it off.

On a second visit, a detective was told he couldn't have a mocha because the stand was out of chocolate. He also was told he couldn't order a small drink because they only served 20-ounce beverages.

The barista told him that for $20, she and the other barista would give him a show. He paid and they bared their breasts and pulled down their undergarments, police reports said. [...]

Meanwhile, the City Council is expected to decide next week whether to change the city's lewd conduct ordinance to include espresso stands. The proposed change, which was part of a regular review of city codes, would not prevent baristas from wearing bikinis, city spokeswoman Kate Reardon said. It also still would be legal for women to wear pasties and sheer undergarments as long as their nipples and areolas are covered.

    maybe they should use duct tape instead of pasties.

    Maybe you can get the ABC to go on a fact-finding trip to Everett.

    I live not too far from Everett, and I tend to avoid it at all costs. Clearly, I've been making a big mistake.

    I thought nudity was legal as long as you didn't serve alcohol.

    I'm sure he had No Idea what was happening at his coffee stand, and certainly played no part in compelling this behavior from his employees.

    If I ever saw anything so lewd my monocle would pop out and drop into my cup of Hawaiian Punch.

    That sound effect, just btw, is *bloop*.

    I googled it, so now I know, but wow. I was struggling to find out how wearing
    pasties might be attractive to anyone outside of cornwall.

    As an Everett native who still lives here, I dont drink caffeine.

    Notice that next door to the bikini drive thru was a old Drag Queen disco nightclub. But it was closed down recently when Everett's first Walmart moved in across the street.

    Yes, that's right, Bikini Drive thru is across the street from a Walmart. hmmm.
