No shirt? No problem! The barista doesn't mind. - February 28th 2009, 10:35 PM

I laughed at this. Source: CNN--Topless coffee shop a hit in small Maine town.
Quote:
On Monday, Donald Crabtree opened Grand View Topless Coffee Shop in Vassalboro, Maine, where the waiters and waitresses serve their customers topless.

In a town with fewer than 4,500 residents, the topless coffee shop is booming with business. Paul Crabtree, the owner's brother, describes business so far as "fantastic."

"It's just been crowds mobbing in," he said.

Donald Crabtree faced initial opposition to his plan, but he won the right to go ahead in a planning board hearing last week. Many local residents were irate over the idea of combining coffee and nudity. Crabtree, however, saw a profitable business venture.

Lol
Are the watresses completely topless or wearing bras? Because if they were completely topless there would be indecent exposure laws wouldn't there?

O.o If the girls are topless, I'd be scared of spilling something or accidentally drooping into someone else's coffee. Gravity sucks

If I worked there, I could totally see myself ending up with stuff all over the front of me accidentally. Yeah, burning myself with coffee with no shirt on doesn't sound like a good idea.

I want to go there some time soon. I'm sure I can find at least one more person who's as psyched about it as I am. Strip clubs are just a little too sleezy. It's like an hour and a half away from here though.

Also, the quality of the stuff they serve doesn't look that great. I think it's mostly like...gas station type coffee and hot chocolate. I'm assuming the pastries are too. At least you're paying for a decent view though.

Lol. That is too funny. I'd go there, but too many states away.

LMAO man I love my state. haha
Maine's been particularly hit by the recession. I think that was a desperate, yet good attempt to get some money, cause really, our economy sucks here.

I don't know what the laws for indecent exposure are here, but I don't think they're too bad. I went to a beach once and didn't want some tan lines on m back, so I just took off my top (I was lying on my stomach). People didn't really care too much.


I'd sing you a song, but I'm feeling quite off
in my heart; it's occupied,

and now's not the time.

I don't think the public indecency laws would cover this business.

That's pretty amusing actually. I guess he could charge something crazy for the coffee until the novelty wears out!

It's an 18+ cafe, and it's designed to still follow hygiene standards. I see no problems with it; it's making money in a bad economy, and doing so without exploiting people who don't want to be there or showing this stuff to children.
