Friend & I were on the way to chelan, stopped by the above-mentioned establishment for a bite to eat. After waiting for about 10 minutes to have our order taken, we finally get to place our order. About wo minutes into waiting for our burgers, the owner approached, pointing at my 1911 & asking if it was a bb gun. When I simply stated, "no", he freaked, telling me that his liquor license didn't allow it.

When I told him it wasn't against the law, he switched his story to "i have a bar here". He finally just said he didn't want them in his restaurant.....we left & went next door to the squirrel.tree.

Squirrel tree owner is retired marine & happy to allow firearms...concealed or open!

Good move. I don't think I would want to eat in a place where the owner can't read the law regarding firearms in his place. Chances are he can't read the health department regulations either.

I agree good move.

The progression from lying to truthfulness is hilarious.
Isn't that funny how that goes. Even more hilarious watching police do it when they illegally detain you for OC......:eek: Oh no a guy who knows we are lying to him......:lol:
