Alicia Hoover stood at a bus stop in Spokane’s Hillyard neighborhood and squinted at a street sign a block away.
“Two things certain in life,” the sign read on Tuesday afternoon. “1. Death. 2. If u sleep in a tank top when u wake up one (breast) will be out.”

Hoover, who was on her way to a doctor’s appointment nearby, was confused – and a little offended.
“I don’t know how that sells coffee,” she said, shaking her head. “There’s no reason for it.”

The sign is supposed to be an advertisement for 2nd Base Espresso, a “bikini barista” stand on the corner of East Sanson Avenue and North Haven Street. It greets drivers with a new provocative or vulgar message every few days.

The business, where scantily clad women serve jolts of caffeine out of a drive-thru window, has a reputation for pushing the limits. Earlier this week, it came under fire on social media for a racist sign reading, “Why can’t u play Uno with Mexicans? They take all the green cards.”
