"Mariposa's Cafe Closed By City"

The San Antonio City Council prigs seem to be using city resources to hassle entrepreneurial efforts.

From KSAT-12:

SAN ANTONIO -- A controversial restaurant once known for its scantily-clad waitresses had its doors closed by the city Thursday.

Mariposa's Cafe, located at the intersection of Guadalupe and South Trinity streets, had its certificate of occupancy revoked for installing three new signs without the proper permits, according to city officials. One of the new signs sits on a pole in the middle of a handicapped parking spot.

City officials said they believe the signs have been removed, but the offending poles are still in place. The city will withhold the eatery's certificate until owners become compliant.

Previously touched on here.
