Washington’s Bikini Baristas Draw Fire
It’s service in a thong for customers of drive-through coffee shops in Washington State, but not everyone is delighted by the barely-clad ladies doling out caffeine. The women say they earn good money while providing an innocuous service. Critics see them as sex workers, especially after some women were caught flashing undercover cops for tips, and want the coffee shops regulated like adult entertainment. Local politicians struggle with whether the Grab-N-Go Bikini Hut has the potential to become the next Hooters, or a might-have-been.
