Fighting bikinis

Before she leaves office, mayoral candidate and current District 8 Councilwoman Diane Cibrian wants to save us from scantily-clad women just one more time.
A group of church and school parents have raised concerns over the scheduled opening of a sports bar with waitresses donning bikinis.

Parents of the San Antonio Preparatory Academy, located at 8308 Fredericksburg Road, are concerned over the creation of a new Bikinis Sports Bar & Grill a stone's throw away at 8224 Fredericksburg Road.

"These are children," said SA Prep Academy Principal Rose Evola. "They've got curious minds and they are curious."

The worry is that students may be curious about what's replacing the former Applebee's restaurant, and some parents said they're concerned about what kind of clientele the business may attract since its waitresses wear unorthodox uniforms.

"You have clientele that might ... [What? --ed.] look, there's children, I don't want that," said parent Kathy Jones. "Scary? Absolutely." [Bikinis are scary? Don't go near the beach; there are bikinis everywhere down there. --ed.]

Located less than a half-mile away at 8527 Wurzbach Road is a Hooters restaurant. District 8 City Councilwoman and mayoral candidate Diane Cibrian said she's already looking into the Bikinis situation.

"We want to make sure that our neighborhood is safe and we're providing the adequate security that's needed," she said.

Hm. The presence of Hooters -- which has been there for a long time -- does complicate things. What's a councilwoman to do?

Oh, for crying out loud.

It's a sports bar, people.

A sports bar.

That is to say, the sort of place kids aren't exactly going to be hanging around anyway.

And yeah, bikinis, scary? Swimming pools and beaches are off-limits then.

God forbid your little snowflake sees some cleavage.

I can appreciate being concerned about the clientele... but, are they worried about HOOTERS' clientele as well? Or are they just picking on this new business? And, the way the economy is right now, it's more likely that unless this new bar STEALS a lot of HOOTERS' business, they won't be there that long anyway.

Oh yeah, one more thing... I sure hope that this school isn't the type to allow their gals in fundraising to do any bikini/swimsuit car washing... because that's the SAME THING... and attracts virtually the SAME clientele. Pot, Kettle. Kettle, Pot.
