BarBe Q, the shapely mannequin outside KT's Barbecue restaurant in Reading, Ohio, can continue wearing her revealing halter top and short shorts. On May 13, the city's Design Review Board agreed to let BarBe Q remain on display outside as long as she dressed more modestly.

But restaurant owner Kenny Tessel appealed, and Monday night Reading's Board of Zoning Appeals agreed with him 3-2.

He had told the design review board that the advertising gimmick had increased his business by 40 percent.

"I am very happy," Tessel told The Cincinnati Enquirer. "Now, we can get back to business."
