NEWS & OPINION SEEKED| Topless coffee shop proposed for small Maine town

A one-time motel in a small central Maine town could soon be offering an eye-opening way to start the day — topless coffee shop waitresses.

The Vassalboro Planning Board on Tuesday will consider a business permit request for a topless coffee shop on busy Route 3.

The one-story building has also been the home to several other business ventures, most recently Mac Daddy's Pub at the Fat Cat Grille, which closed three or four years ago.

Neighbors have mixed opinions. Some say Vassalboro is a rural town and that a topless coffee shop would bring the wrong crowd. But others say they'd like to see a business make a go of it there.
