Variation On A Theme

My roommate sprung for lunch, yesterday.  We went to SMASHBURGER; first time visitors.  It was kinda like an upscale McDonalds.  Clean, organized, comfortable.  Greasy/Juicy burgers in a multitude of varieties, with a variety of sides, including some healthier choices.

They also had beer (!) and Haagen Dazs milkshakes!  No, those weren’t the healthier choices.

Arizona CCW Law says one may carry into a place that serves alcohol, if it’s predominantly a food emporium and one doesn’t drink whilst carrying.  Unless there is the dreaded ‘No Guns/Weapons Allowed’ sign posted. Open Carry has been legal in Arizona since she was a territory!  (Statehood – 1912, last of the 48!)

Smashburger had this sign, which I’d not seen before:


I did find this amusing, as this is a fairly liberal college town, and the sign didn’t conform to the CCW statute guidelines.  Of course, I would have prefered no sign at all, but hey, it’s their business.

We anticipate a return visit sometime, but not necessarily soon.  It’s no Thirsty Lion!

(FTC – neither Smashburger nor Thirsty Lion gave me anything.  Move along – nothing to see here.)

  1. No open carry? Mustn’t offend those delicate libtard sensibilities, don’tchaknow.

    At least they don’t prohibit firearms altogether.
