I pulled this image off the Arizona Department of Liquor Licenses and Control’s (DLLC) website.
The DLLC is encouraging restaurant owners to print out this sign and to post it on the front of their establishments before September 29th, 2009 – that is, if the restaurant owner does not want people carrying concealed weapons to enter their venue.
See, after Sept. 29, 2009 a new law will actually go into effect that will allow people carrying concealed weapons to bring them into restaurants and bars (just as long as they don’t drink).
The reason that I put 2009 above in bold is because I just want everyone to be absolutely clear that this 2009 and not 1809 when people would park their horses out front and shoot the place up over a crazy game of poker.
Arizona has banned smoking cigarettes in restaurants, not smoking guns.
Last week we posted a about a blog about a San Francisco restaurant’s Yelp strategy that ended up getting some nice traction with the SF Chronicle, NY Times, Food and Wine Magazine,Â Gawker and the SF Weekly.Â Will we see a new trend in online reviews after September 29, 2009?Â I mean, why waste your time giving a chef a bad review when you could just waste the chef?
Bad service?Â No problem, that is if you remembered to bring your (hidden) Smith and Wesson.
