Garden Grove Bans Coffeehouse Nudity, Gambling

GARDEN GROVE (AP) — Scantily-clad baristas will no longer be serving up coffee at lingerie cafes in Garden Grove.

More than three dozen of the coffeehouses are operating in the Orange County city of Garden Grove, and some waitresses have been slipping out of teddies to serve customers in the nude.

Additionally, arcade machines have been rigged to be gambling machines.

The Orange County Register reports Wednesday that the City Council has voted 4-0 to ban nudity, gambling and smoking in the sexy cafes.

Police Chief Kevin Raney told the council his officers have raided 20 coffeehouses and confiscated 200 gambling machines. The chief says nude waitresses were also encountered, and the lingerie cafes have attracted gangs.

    Part of Starbucks success is due to them giving fancy names to coffee drinks. Anyone know the fancy names this place gave for their drinks? “May I have a hot Fellatiaccino, please.”

    If you don’t like them, don’t go into them. Stay out of my life. What happened to great conservative values of keeping the government out of people’s lives. This is just another California power grab. No this, no that. These politicians take us all for imbecilas that we cannot make desicions for ourselves.
