Coffee Anyone.

I realize that times are hard for all coffee shops, but a new shop in Maine is going in a different direction from Starbucks. The name of the place says it all, the Grand View Topless Coffee Shop. That's right you can get your coffee served by a topless waitress. The owners don't discriminate, the waiters are topless too. The windows to the place have been darkened and a sign says no admittance to anyone under 18. I guess we will see if sex really sells. Personally I don't drink coffee, but even if I did I wouldn't go there. If that is what it takes to sell their coffee it probably is pretty bad. When it comes to food and beverages I want quality at a reasonable price. That is one reason I have never ate at Hooters. There prices are higher than I like to pay, and I have had several friends tell me that the food is not worth what they charge. Since that coffee shop is in Maine, maybe Stephen King could use that coffee shop as a springboard for his next novel.

Al was right. A flute is not a percussion instrument.

Today's question is Grade 4/World History. Ivan the Terrible was a czar of what country?

This was an easy one for me. 37-10.

When I was a lad, and there were still places with video game machines called "Arcades" on every street, there was one in south Florida where I lived that went topless.

That's right, a topless video game arcade, with "attendants" to get you your change.

Howard, FINALLY I found something about which we disagree (I was beginning to think we were separated at birth). Even though I think topless coffee shops are way stupid (and mask hideous cups o' joe), I actually like eating at Hooters. Not because of the aforementioned abundance of hooters (at my age, the girls could be my daughters so, there would be a significant "ick" factor if I ogled them) but because I really like their food...especially the Buffalo Chicken sandwich with 3 Mile Island sauce. But, hey, to each...
By the way, Ivan was czar of Mother Russia.

Al, I'm a couple of years older than you, so that would also go for me, although for almost 4 years I did have a young lady live with me. She was 23 years younger. Unless you are independently wealthy and can afford it, I don't recommend it. I am not a real big fan of spicy foods. I don't like to keep eating a meal 3 days after I had it, if you know what I mean.

Answer: Russia

I don't like Hooters food myself, but I'm not a hot wing kind of guy. It is decent enough to watch a game with some friends though and drink some beer.

There would have to be a lot more incentive than being topless to get me to buy coffee.

Interestingly, the news this morning reported on said coffee shop. I used to live in Maine and I could swear there was something like this back in the late 80s.
I DID have the 911 sauce once at Hooters which was wayyyyy too hot.
Not only did I end up "eating it" several more times over the next couple of days, I had an especially memorable gastrointestinal event (if you know what I mean) that night.
'Nuff said.
