(Associated Press) A historic bar and bowling alley can re-hang its bras now that the city of Milwaukee has backed down from a ban that forced the establishment to remove dozens of bras from the ceiling. The Holler House was briefly required to take this action after a city inspector decided that the dangling underwear constituted a fire hazard.

Bras had been an overhead staple of Holler House for 45 years when the inspector demanded their removal in April. Because the fine for violating a fire hazard order in Milwaukee can range from $150 to $10,000 per day, the bar’s 87-year-old owner, Marcy Skowronski, had her son-in-law remove the offending underwear.
