IHOP's food is better anyway.
Thread: Finally happened - had to leave.
Last Saturday, went to Tucson gun show with Sig P220 in OC. On way home I stopped off at Denny's on E. Irvington rd for food. I saw place was near empty as manager held door open for me and then he noticed the P220.
Manager: "Uh no guns allowed in here, 'cause we serve alcohol".
Me looking around for gunbuster sign or beer posters:"When did you start selling alcohol".
Manager:"We always served alcohol". (Very true, been there before and did OC - I just never noticed)
Me as I turned to leave:"Guess I won't be eating here".
Manager with usual dumb statement:"Sorry about that".
Got back in car and drove to IHOP on Grant and Rosemont which doesn't serve booze and accepts OC. Place was busy, and no one noticed the big ugly Sig I was carrying and I had a great meal.
Later, I emailed Denny's website inquiring which Denny's restaurants in Tucson serve alcohol - Beer & Wine.
Got a reply next day - E. Irvington location is the only one.
Oh well, my bad.
IHOP's food is better anyway.
The type of license has no effect on where you can carry. If some gin mill that doesn't serve any food, unless you want to count the pretzels on the bar or that dusty jar of pickled pigs feet behind the bar, isn't posted you can carry in there.
One of the very few good things in the Restaurant Carry bill was dropping all distinction about liquor license types or whether a place served food.
so you got the one dennys that serves alcohol? LOL. Thats my kind of luck right there.
I Oc at dennys when i go there, the people there are very nice about it.
And yes, IHOP does have better food, plus Grant & Rosemont and Broadway & Pantano IHOP's have no problem with OC.
We have our breakfast meets at the IHOP in Hammond La., sometimes. Either way they get my business almost every sunday. They have never given any problems with oc here either.
There are several IHOPs in the Cincinnati area. The one closest to me--you might say the most "inner city" IHOP here--is posted with 'No Guns' signage.
Their other stores are outside the metro circle interstate for the most part, and don't post. My complaint e-mails and letters to IHOP corporate always hint at the idea that their company just may be a little bigoted or rascist, based on the evidence. They've stopped sending back any sort of reply at all.
Sorry for the drift, and for those of you who haven't seen IHOPs with gunbuster signs, no offense intended, carry on. Fwiw we are just now getting Denny's restaurants back in my region, they were gone for a long time. Hope they don't become CPZs too.
I thought Denny's mostly served to drunks. I've never seen one that served alcohol.
In Arizona, most Denny's restaurants serve beer. The Denny's in Yuma served a small selection of beer. Also, as of 3 years ago, the IHOP in Yuma was posted "no weapons allowed."
You might pass this on to your GM....
The IHOP in Tucson on Grant at Rosemont has to my knowledge never been posted - no guns. I OC there often.
The IHOP in Tucson at corner of Broadway & Pantano was posted until about a years ago. Little blue sign on front door was removed. They support OC.
Another IHOP on Grant just off I-10 remains posted, to my knowledge. BAD neighborhood.
I don't think the one in Sierra Vista does, but I'll check in case anyone is curious. The SV one is NASTY even by Denny's standards, so I don't eat there anyway. I think we are getting an IHOP soon when the new Super Wal-Mart opens...
Freedom is a bit like sex, when your getting it you take it for granted, when you're not you want it bad, other people get mad at you for having it and others want to take it away from you so only they have it.
P.S. Is there a way to format text on the new forum? I can't figure out how to highlight/italicize/etc.
