Ladies, Would This Woman Keep Your Man Out Of The Starbucks?
Friday, February 24, 2012
“My husband is certainly not allowed to go there.” Guys, can you imagine your wife saying that? Or maybe she doesn’t have to, because you already know the places you’re “not allowed to go.”
After eight years running a bar, Laura Maggi suddenly found men beating a path to her door. Not for the quality of her coffee and aperitifs, but because she had started appearing for work in highly revealing outfits.
Hundreds of male customers flocked there day and night, leaving their cars double parked in the surrounding streets.
Now women in the small northern Italian town of Bagnolo Mella have declared Le Cafe out of bounds to their menfolk – and 34-year-old Miss Maggi has become a national celebrity.
Several wives from the town have been on TV to complain. One said: ‘It is outrageous and should not be allowed...
Bagnolo’s mayor Cristina Almici said: ‘We have received several complaints from women about the bar and we are looking at what we can do with regard to public order.
‘We can’t stop people from going to her bar and I know it is very popular with men in the town – personally I don’t see any problem with how she looks or dresses. 'If anything, it’s the men who go there who have a problem.’
She added, however: ‘My husband is certainly not allowed to go there.’
UPDATE! More photos...and, guys, more (ahem) INTERESTING photos, of Laura Maggi are here.
Cream and sugar with that espresso, signore?
