It’s the law: What bikini baristas can’t expose in Spokane Valley

SPOKANE VALLEY  (AP) — The Spokane Valley City Council has approved an ordinance that identifies what body parts cannot be exposed in public.

The ordinance, unanimously passed Tuesday, is aimed at getting nearly nude coffee stand servers to cover up, reports KREM.

The ordinance prohibits a person from knowingly exposing a body part in public without a full or opaque covering.

What doesn’t count as cover? Body paint, body dye or stick-on tattoos.

The controversy began earlier this year when a coffee stand opened blocks from the Spokane Valley City Hall with nearly nude baristas. The stand advertised Topless Tuesdays and Thursdays.
