LEXINGTON -- While the Elite Eight Jumbo Chicken Wings, the Pig and Chick Panini, and the Wood-Grilled Kobe Beef Frankfurter remain on the menu at Cal's Championship Steakhouse, one item in particular is strictly off limits...sex.
In light of explosive testimony that emerged during the recent Rick Pitino-Karen Sypher extortion trial, including details of an after hours sexual encounter between Pitino and Sypher at Porcini Resturant in Louisville, management at Cal's Championship Steakhouse has decided to take a proactive approach to what they deem to be a potential problem.
"There are few things in life that get folks feeling amorous and in the mood quite like a romantic dinner," said Orlando Johnson, manager of Cal's Championship Steakhouse in midtown Lexington. "We would simply ask that, at Cal's, they refrain from engaging in intercourse at least until they get to the parking lot."
During the sensational Summer trial, in which Sypher was ultimately found guilty of three counts of extortion, two counts of lying to the FBI, and one count of retaliating against a witness, Pitino, while admitting to having sex with Sypher, testified that the act itself "lasted less than fifteen seconds." According to Johnson, however, time isn't a factor in regards to the resturant's new policy. "While obviously we'd prefer a brief encounter like Pitino's as opposed to a couple of people going at it on top of the bar for an hour, time really is a non-issue here," said Johnson. "Our policy here at Cal's is no sex whatsoever, be it an hour or the amount of time it takes to toss a salad."
Cal's new policy, according to Johnson, isn't merely limited to the restaurant's dining room. "No sex anywhere inside the restaurant, period," said Johnson. "It might be okay for Pitino to do it at Porcini's, or for that Humpty guy to do it in a Burger King bathroom, but it ain't happening here at Cal's."
