Bikini coffee shops have become popular in recent years, with some taking the concept “all the way” with coffee shops featuring topless servers, such as the Grand View Topless Coffee Shop in Vassalboro, Maine.
You have to be 18 years old to enter Grand View Topless Coffee Shop, and owner Donald Crabtree told CNN in February 2009 that business has been great, “It’s just been crowds mobbing in”, which is another example of fine beverage pitching in to help out the struggling economy.
CNN ran another story this week about Grand View Topless Coffee Shop, this time about it’s destruction, which is believed to be at the hands of an arsonist.
Crabtree is determined to rebuild, but didn’t have insurance on the original building, so hopefully that works out for him. And if this was indeed arson, I hope the gods of fine beverage karma get Crabtree’s back and get him up an running as soon as possible.
