The owner wants to turn the old Mt. Fuji Inn at 72nd and Blondo streets into a bar with waitresses who are wearing bathing suits. Many critics told the council Tuesday that they do not want it in their neighborhood, near schools.

The council urged the owner to change the name to "Candi's" instead of "Candyland."
