This is Outrageous! And on international women's day! Commiefornia is doing this in an obvious misogynist effort to put women down! Who is with me against this egregious outrage against women on women's day!?
Everyone knows I am all for women's rights and that cutesy equality "stuff."
Bottoms Up Espresso is planning to open up a new location in Chico, Calif., but the idea appears to have residents hot and bothered — and not in the way the owners likely intended. An unconventional coffee shop in California is finding itself at the center of controversy – yet again – as a result of its servers’ skimpy styles. At a meeting on Tuesday, city council members in American Canyon voted unanimously to revoke a license granted to Bottoms Up Espresso , after critics argued that the “bikini barista” coffee shop was operating more like an adult business than a café.
The coffee shop, which has multiple locations in the Bay Area, originally opened its American Canyon location in December, SF Gate reported.

“I met with one of the owners on Jan. 4, 2019 who informed me that he intends to require the employees at the American Canyon store to wear costumes that are as revealing as the costumes worn on staff at other Bottoms Up Espresso stores,” community director Brent Cooper had previously said, according to the Vallejo Times-Herald .
“The business owner provided a ‘dress code.’ The costumes in the ‘dress code’ are revealing to a degree that the business meets the definition of an adult business per the city’s Municipal Code.” According to the SF Gate, the city’s municipal code also requires workers to cover specific “anatomical areas” of the body, including the buttocks, the pubic area, and the breasts below the areola. Otherwise, it may be classified as an adult-entertainment establishment. A representative for Bottoms Up Espresso was not immediately available for comment.
'FIXER UPPER' STARS ANNOUNCE NEW COFFEE SHOP PLANS Bottoms Up had previously come under scrutiny before opening its Chico location, and specifically its proximity to a dance school. At the time, owner Nate Wilson argued that the baristas weren’t wearing anything Californians wouldn’t see on a beach . "We are a very classy business and pride ourselves on customer service and quality drinks. We have dress codes that expose less then you would see at a pool or beach," CEO Nate Wilson told Fox News. Chico Mayor Sean Morgan had also called Bottoms Up’s Chico location “unfortunate,” but ultimately said the business was not violating city code.
