LINGERIE COFFEE SHOPS ARE CAUSING A STIR AGAIN...
2ND BASE LINGERIE ESPRESSO IN THE SPOKANE VALLEY HAS
TWO LARGE SIGNS WITH A BARELY CLOTHED WOMAN ON IT
FOR ALL TO SEE.
KXLY'S ALLIE NORTON IS WORKING FOR YOU TONIGHT.
SHE HAS DETAILS ON SPRAGUE AVENUES CONTROVERSIAL BILLBOARD.
TAKE A DRIVE DOWN SPRAGUE AVENUE IN THE SPOKANE VALLEY.
NATS OF CARS GOING BY
AND YOU MAY FIND YOURSELF LOOKING AT THIS SIGN OUTSIDE
OF 2ND BASE LINGERIE ESPRESSO.
KXLY IS CHOOSING TO BLUR THE WOMAN ON THE SIGN.
IT PORTRAYS A WOMAN.
WEARING NOTHING BUT A G-STRING AND SOME ANGEL WINGS.
BACKSIDE TO THE CAMERA.
AND HOLDING HER HAIR.
IT'S ONLY BEEN DISPLAYED SINCE LAST WEEK, BUT ALREADY
IT'S CAUSING OUTRAGE.
It's completely unacceptable and I am offended.
SUSAN EVANS WAS EATING ACROSS THE STREET WITH HER
HUSBAND AND FOUR KIDS TODAY WHEN SHE FOUND HERSELF
FACE TO FACE WITH THE WOMAN ON IT.
SHE SAYS SOMETHING THAT GRAPHIC SHOULDN'T BE PUT IN
This must be taken down.
THE SIGN IS BOTH IN FRONT AND TO THE REAR OF 2ND BASE
BOTH SIGNS ARE ABOUT TEN FEET HIGH AND ARE COMPLETELY
VISABLE TO PEOPLE DRIVING BY.
It's a busy street and a lot of families do drive
up and down it.
TAYLOR WALSDORF SAYS HE UNDERSTANDS IT'S ADVERTISING,
BUT THINKS THAT IT'S A LITTLE OVER THE TOP.
I think they could have
done a little bit better advertising
outdoor and that's just my opinion.
JOEY JOHNSTON WHO WORKS ACROSS THE STREET SAYS HE
PERSONALLY DOESN'T HAVE A PROBLEM, BUT CAN SEE WHY
PEOPLE ARE UPSET.
This is a family resturaunt and this area, people
drive by all the time.
Like I said, I don't have a problem with it, maybe
if it was just a little less revealing.
OTHERS SAID OFF CAMERA THAT IT'S NO WORSE THAN SOME
OF THE LINGERIE COMMERCIALS THAT RUN ON TV.
We reached out to the owner of 2nd Base Lingerie Espresso
and she declined to talk on camera.
She did say that the only problem she's ran into is
the city saying the sign is too tall, so she's currently
in the process of getting a permit for it.
SPOKANE VALLEY CITY COUNCIL PASSED AN ORDINANCE BACK
IN NOVEMBER THAT REQUIRES WORKERS TO COVER UP.
PER THE NEW MUNICIPAL CODE IN PUBLIC PLACES.
WOMEN CAN ONLY SHOW HALF OF THEIR BREAST.
WITH NO NIPPLE.
THE ONLY RESTRICTION FOR A PERSON'S BACKSIDE PROHIBITS
SHOWING THE ANUS.
