Restaurant dancers stopped in Florida...

I couldn't believe this when I saw it. A city near(?) Jacksonville, Florida, pressured a restaurant owner to stop having belly dance performers because it is considered "exotic" dancing and the restaurant serves alcohol, a combination that is banned by city ordinances. Apparently, the people who complained didn't even see a show; they just saw an advertisement for the show. City officials seem to be backing off now that people are asking questions, but it's chilling that it even got that far.

I'd love to hear from somebody who lives in the area. This seems to have been going on since March.

The news article is here.
