ORIGINAL, March 5:
Another Cowgirls Espresso stand in Renton is in the news, this time with one on Park Avenue North being closed Tuesday by Public Health-Seattle & King County for having no available hot water.
On Monday you might recall, we reported that a Maple Valley man is facing voyeurism charges for allegedly climbing on an ice box to watch a bikini barista change clothes at a Cowgirls Espresso stand on Lake Washington Boulevard North.
The department issued the following notice Tuesday about the Cowlgirls stand on Park Avenue:
Cowgirls Espresso located at 314 Park Ave N, Renton, WA 98057 was closed by a Public Health food inspector on Tuesday, March 5, 2013 at 11:00 am due to the imminent health hazard of no available hot water. The establishment will be reopened once the inspector confirms that hot water has been restored.
The Food establishment closures homepage is online at www.kingcounty.gov/healthservices/health/ehs/foodsafety/inspections/closures
Cowgirls Espresso operates 15 bikini barista stands, three in Renton, its website pointing out, “This is no ordinary coffee!”
Patch will update this story when the Park Avenue stand is allowed to reopen.
What do you think? Is this type of espresso stand appropriate for Renton or do they lend themselves to trouble? Please tell us in the comments box below.
