Restaurant Drops "Naked" Promo to Appease Town Council

Restaurant Drops "Naked" Promo to Appease Town Council

Would you run naked down to the dock and jump in for a free "Skinny Dip" sandwich? If that sounds like a fair price for a free lunch, the town council of Greenville, ME, advises you to think again.

The town's Black Frog Restaurant stopped its promotion offering a sliced prime rib on a baguette for free (regularly $10.95) to diners willing to run naked into Moosehead Lake. The reason? The town council (perhaps in cahoots with the local police department, who'd been responding to complaints about nudity, a misdemeanor in their community) was holding the restaurant's liquor license renewal hostage. The local police chief said that he would most certainly recommend any business lose its license that promoted an ongoing campaign to encourage illegality.

The restaurant has (sadly? That depends, I suppose . . . ) ended its promotion, stating that "au jus" wins out over "au naturel."
