Talking News, Naked lunch promo dropped to placate town board.

GREENVILLE, Maine (AP) - There's no such thing as a free lunch anymore for Black Frog Restaurant patrons nervy enough to run down a dock and plunge naked into Moosehead Lake.

Owner Leigh Turner decided Thursday to stop giving out a free Skinny Dip sandwich—that's thinly sliced prime rib on a baguette—for a skinny dip after the town board voted to deny his liquor license renewal application.

I love the Black Frog restaurant! It wasn't quite as fun as the Road Kill was before it closed, but it was still fun with decent food too! Bummer, no more skinny dipping.

I think the Old Town Bowling League (you know the one I mean) should go there and protest by jumping in the lake anyway- no free sandwish needed!

Some people might not be aware but it is completely legal to be nude in public. I think there's some mention of exposing ones genitals but I also think it has to be in a manner to try and arouse another person....or something like that...

reading this made me think of if there was any law violations and as far as I can remember there isn't............as long as the intent was to....."just get a free meal".

Yes, but if your small town politics are like Texas small town politics, the powers that be will find a way to get around the law if it offends their mother........or sister.........or one of their inlaws. In this case, they may be on a witch hunt, in WHICH case the owner has no choice but to play along.

JMHO!
