An El Monte watering hole has been cited for offering "female companionship for men willing to pay more for their drinks," reports the Pasadena Star-News. The shady dealings were allegedly going down at the Halcon Bar & Cafe on Garvey Avenue, where workers "would add a surcharge to drinks in exchange for providing women to keep the men company," which happens to be illegal.
