Our post about the controversy stirred by a teen-lingerie night at Puff Hookah Cafe Bar focused in large part on the venue's attempt to reassure parents concerned by coverage on local TV stations.

it is not illegal for an under 18 to wear lingerie, it is not illegal for under 18 to smoke non-tobacco. Prom night has more drinking, sex, drugs and parents still let teens go to it.
