More Toplessness in Maine

After yesterday, I feel the need to keep my readers abreast of the what's happening in Maine with regards to shirt-shedding.  Those marching in last weekend's demonstration against gender bias were not the first to bare their boobs in this state.   (If you didn't read yesterday's post, click here.)

As far back as 2005, a little place called Mark's Topless Donut Shop existed in Portland, Maine.  (Yes, Hubby and I had donuts there once.  Research, you know.)  By night the facility was a strip club, and I guess the Donut Shop was an attempt to extend the moneymaking hours.  I found the waitresses to be lovely, and I can't say that the place felt sleezy at all.  Coffee and donuts were on the menu, as well as lots of eye-candy for the guys. 

In February of 2009, in a little town named Vasselboro, another topless donut shop was born. (All this shedding of shirts makes me wonder if there isn't some ttruth to this global warming stuff we've been hearing about.)   The reaction to it was mixed.  There was no ban on bare breasts in the town, so some immediately set to work trying to pass a ban on public nudity.  Others had a more cavelier attitude towards the place and were not aroused to take any such action.  The place was booming, as I understand it.

Then in June of last year, the Grandview Topless Donut Shop was destroyed by a mysterious fire.  Said fire occurred the very next day after the Proprietor of the shop, David Crabtree,  had approached the town planning board with his plans to extend his hours of operation and add dancing to his waitresses' job description.  The fire has been under investigation since, and Crabtree has been operating his shop in a temporary building.  Now, all these months later, there's been a breakthough in the case:





(I'm relieved to know that the Tea Party wasn't behind this!)

Oh my goodness, topless donut shops?????? Holy crap, who woulda ever thunk it! Maybe we should be moving to Maine! LOL.

I'd do some research,you know, to make sure the experience is well thought and properly executed when I write about it! :)

And I thought living next to my exhibitionist neighbors was exciting!

Tgoette said...

LOL! Topless donut shops sound awesome! I'm surprised we don't have any in CA. I guess the experience could conceivably free up your hands on those "to go" orders. Interesting!

Steven Anthony said...

donuts, topless or otherwise are awesome:)

It sounds like "Hooters Goes Mainstream" to me! I just don't think topless waitresses handing out donuts sounds like fun, but maybe that's just me. I do wonder about those job interviews, though.

I'll bet the person making the donuts has a shirt on. They wouldn't want to risk a hot-grease splatter.

Excellent investigative journalism, Eva. Glad to see that you are keeping abreast of the issue.

Deb said...

Will you be doing research at the Grand View (love that name)? I did a post on that place when it first opened, then again when it burned down. Two posts without even trying! I'm loving Mr. Crabtree!

Hot coffee + naked boobs.

Can you say "skin graft"?

Writing: Be sure to post photos on your blog!

Steven: Love the way you focus on food! lol

Canadian: I'll bet you're right

Tam: Yeah, lighten up! lol

Get your sugar fix any way you can! What's going on in Maine? Is it the long winters? The beautiful beaches? The large mammary glands? What?

Midday Escapades said...

Seriously? You went there with your hubby? I must be a prude because I don't even want my hubby going to Hooters.

Candice said...

Would it be appropriate to order the donut holes at that place, or would that be considered kinky?

Aw... He seems like a just a really nice guy. Personally, I have never seem what the big deal is about boobs and nipples, or why it's okay for men to show theirs, but oh the outcry should a woman's boob see the light of day.

Deb: You are so right about the skin graft! scary!
