I actually think this is all interesting. This is the feedback for something the restaurant did.
It's undoubtedly bad business for me to have written that, but The Owl, on a philosophical level, is Much more than a restaurant. It's a vehicle for change. For real. I have multiple discussions every day about the way we run the business - extremely socialistically. Many people respond well to it. Some think I'm silly for "giving away money". My goals with the restaurant are no less than changing what people expect out of an inexpensive meal, and to challenge the way a business can be run. Which sometimes means standing up and speaking out against what I perceive as bullshit. I'm not telling anyone they can't eat here if they hate gays, and I'm not saying only gays can eat here. The post was written very precisely. It does not espouse heroism on us, nor hate on anyone else. It's a plainly written appeal to reason. But only that. An appeal.
