Anti-mask Florida bar owner hosted illegal all-male strip show, cops say


An anti-masker Florida bar owner was busted for allegedly hosting an all-male strip show, according to a new report.

Gary Kirby — who made headlines in the fall for banning mask-wearing at his West Melbourne pub during the pandemic — was accused of illegally operating the nudie revue at the same establishment, Florida Today reported.

Undercover cops raided the Westside Sports Bar & Grill on Thursday during the “Men of Utopia” show, which they said broke a slew of city ordinances regulating adult entertainment.

Dancers violated rules against giving lap dances, displaying their genitals and touching customers “in certain areas of their bodies,” according to an arrest affidavit cited by the outlet.

Kirby, 33, allegedly admitted he knew the performances were illegal, and that he’d been previously warned by cops not to host them.

He was charged with operating an adult entertainment establishment in violation of municipal ordinance and released on $250 bond.
