naked nudes

After a long battle, the townspeople of Berlin, Conn., can finally get naked in public.

More than a year ago, Marty St. Pierre, co-owner of the Berlin Station Cafe (search), put up a sign advertising “Naked Karaoke” for a laugh.

“It was always a joke, nothing more than that,” St. Pierre told the New Britain (Conn.) Herald.

But people signed up – 120 of them. The interest was so great that the town let St. Pierre know he could be arrested for violating a sexually oriented business ordinance.

Co-owner David Koskoff, a lawyer, sued the town on the grounds that the ordinance was ridiculous, and won.

Last month, the town amended the ordinance, and, after two pajamas-and-underwear qualifying rounds, full-monty Naked Karaoke will finally take place this Saturday.

“I personally think it’s an embarrassment to the town,” said Mayor Adam Salina.

“It’s a completely voluntary activity,” counters St. Pierre. “It’s not like I’m paying people to do karaoke with clothing optional.”

So, anyway, opineth Allegra, I’ll see you at Wreck Beach for the Naked Karaoke Beach party.
