O'Fallon, Ill., officials nix bikini bike nights

The city of O’Fallon, Ill., has scuttled a local watering hole’s plans for a series of motorcycle-themed events over the summer.

Mayor Gary Graham revoked HotShots Sports Bar and Grill’s to hold the outdoor events.

Local officials feared the venue’s parking lot is not big enough for the events and that noise would disturb neighbors. But what really upset them was an ad in Full Throttle magazine promoting the event as "Bikini Bike Night."

"Mayor Graham has revoked the Special Event Permit because Hotshots misrepresented themselves when they applied for the special event permit and did not disclose that bikini night would be promoted in conjunction with the biker night," O'Fallon City Administrator Walter Denton told the Bellville News-Democrat.

Events were scheduled for April 5 and 12, both Tuesday nights, with more to come throughout the summer if the first two were successful.
