"Dancing No Longer On Restaurant Menu"

Well, it looks like the busybodies won one. All you waiters and waitresses, watch out, especially if you work in District 5.

From KSAT-12:

SAN ANTONIO -- Waitresses at a Mexican restaurant on the city's West Side will no longer dance while serving customers, District 5 Councilwoman Lourdes Galvan said Wednesday.

Galvan said that the city and the owner of Mariposas Cafe reached a compromise after residents complained and protested about the provocative dancing going on in the eatery.


While the waitresses will not be dancing, they will be allowed to keep their outfits, Galvan said.

Marion Luna, the restaurant's owner, said that she respects the wishes of the community and asks that residents respect her business.

Luna said that her waitresses did nothing wrong and she was trying to create a niche in the competitive restaurant industry.

Hooray for Luna's entrepreneurial spirit. Boo on Galvan's priggishness.

We were warned about this place at work because apparently one of the TV news reports caught a bunch of SAWS and CPS employees there in uniform.

Heh. I've never been there, though.

Dangit! Well, I'll still eventually go scope out the cuisine! Happy V-day!
