Grandview Topless Coffee Shop burns down
UPDATE: The Boston Herald says it was arson:
It appears at least one person felt a topless coffee shop in Maine was too hot. Fire officials say a blaze that destroyed the Grand View Topless Coffee Shop in Vassalboro at about 1 a.m. today was set by an arsonist.
Donald Crabtree thought a topless coffee and doughnut store was just the way for a merchant to fight the recession, so he opened the Grandview Topless Coffee Shop in Vassalboro, Maine, a few months ago. The place drew legions, but last night it burned down, according to the Boston Globe.
No word yet on suspected arson, but apparently not all the good Mainers were happy about the Grandview's dress code. Last month a state trooper was called to the Grandview after one of the waitresses went outside in her uniform, according to AP. The Vassalboro town fathers/mothers are scheduled to vote on an ordinance regulating topless restaurants on Monday.
