It’s not lewd conduct or indecent exposure as defined by Everett’s Municipal Code, but the pasties and G-Strings at one south Everett espresso stand are raising eyebrows. The baristas at the Grab-N-Go Bikini Hut in the 7100 Block of Evergreen Way in Everett often sun themselves in the window next to the street. In 2009 the Everett City Council amended the city’s definitions of lewd conduct after baristas at a different Grab N’ Go espresso stand were cited for committing act of prostitution.
While Snohomish County did away with pasties and G-Strings, Everett’s code still allows them and with the warm weather and a big window on a major city street, that’s started to lead to some complaints. So far though, no moves by the Everett City Council to get the girls to cover up a bit more. It is an election year however, so it will be interesting to see if any of the candidates for the four seats up on the Everett City Council will make this a campaign issue.
