Chiquititas Lounge in Norcross, GA is in hot water with local police who arrested the manager for a Kamasutra contest in the middle of the bar as a Valentine's promotion.
Lizzette Vela Loechle, confessed to police that is was her idea, as manager of the bar, to put together the contest, which had couples on a bed, in the middle of the dance floor, doing inappropriate simulations of sex acts. The flyer for the promotion offered $500 to the winner of the Kamasutra contest as an "evening of love". Police became aware after many videos of the acts ended up on social media.
"Loechle stated that when the contest started, several couples begin to simulate that they were having sex," the report stated. "Loechle stated that there were several couples who kept their clothes on the whole time while they demonstrated having sex and some couples got nude while demonstrated having sex." Loechle herself participated in the contest as well.
It was a violation of of county laws for bars "prohibiting entertainment that features nudity and promoting a contest where patrons are encouraged to engage in sexual activity". She said she was unaware that the contest violated any ordinances.
The bar fired the manager and posted on Facebook, "On the night of February 14, 2020, a number of patrons chose to engage in inappropriate conduct. We do not condone their actions. We immediately notified authorities and began our own internal investigations. In response to our findings, we have terminated the manager on duty at the time, and we are fully prepared to reprimand any additional employees in connection with this unfortunate incident. Currently, we are working on new policies and procedures to prohibit any incident of this nature from occurring again."
Police are investigating the situation further and the bar could face fines.
