We've covered the bikini barista phenomenon and now one Spokane business owner seeks to level the scantily-clad playing field.
Chris Mullins is swapping Tailor's Bean Shack for his new coffee house, Hot Cup of Joe, which will feature topless male baristas.
The shirtless fun starts this Friday, when the coffee shop grand opens; daily operating hours are 5 a.m. to 8 p.m.
Mullins told The Spokesman-Review that the men on staff won't be wearing anything as low brow as thongs as bottoms; only "cute, classy underwear" is allowed.
Male coffee drinkers of greater Washington, take note; Hot Cup of Joe will extend a $1 discount when you visit the coffee stand.
