Dining Naked

[This story was reported by Rueters]
The diners arrived at a nice Manhattan restaurant on a cold February night and stripped off coats, hats, gloves and scarves. They didn't stop there.


A group of nudists socialize at the bar before dining together at a 'Clothing Optional Dinner' at a New York City restaurant, February 17, 2005. Skirts, shirts, pants, underwear and stockings all ended up stashed in plastic bags by the bar as the patrons got naked for the monthly "Clothing Optional Dinner."


"It's exciting to be in a restaurant nude," said George Keyes, 65, a retired junior high school English teacher.


The dinner was started by a group of New York nudists who wanted something a bit more elegant than the wilderness getaways and beach resorts they generally frequent.


"When you go away on holiday it's more you're roughing it in the woods, whereas this is a really nice restaurant," said Keyes, a member of gay nudist group.

Around 30 people arrived for the buffet dinner -- organizers specified no hot soup on the menu. Health regulations require staff to remain clothed even if they wanted to join in. And diners must bring something to sit on -- a towel or, for discerning women, an elegant silk scarf.
