MILWAUKEE (WTAQ) - A big party is planned on Friday night at a Milwaukee bar and bowling alley where the city told the owner to take down dozens of bras from a ceiling – and then changed its mind.
Marcy Skowronski expects a big crowd at the Holler House, where all the bras will be hung from the ceiling again.
In April, a city inspector told the 87-year-old Skowronski to take down the bras – some of which were tossed to the ceiling 45 years ago. The official said the bras were a fire hazard.
She complained to the Journal Sentinel and her alderman. It created a controversy in which the city backed down.
Skowronski said the tradition began when she and her friends had a few drinks, and then tossed their bras from skis that hung on the ceiling.
The bar’s been in business since 1908. It has two bowling lanes downstairs, which are said to be the oldest certified lanes in the U.S.
