It was a lot of fun to film this segment and I wrote about my experiences here: http://nickstarr.wordpress.com/2014/06/1…
Jun 4, 2014 NickStarr reviewed Charlie's Bar and Grill.
I wish that I didn't have to be writing this, but it seems that yet again there is a place which no longer wants my business. I will not only no longer give it to them, but also encourage everyone I meet to also boycott establishments with archaic and outdated ideals of proper business practices, especially when their customers have prescription devices which they outright ban.

Last Sunday my partner and I were on Broadway heading to an event and decided to get some food beforehand. We walked into Charlies and they asked if we wanted a booth or to sit at the bar. It was the tail end of happy hour so we decided to check out the bar and the happy hour menu. The last time we were here we also sat in the back bar with friends in July 2013. At that time I was wearing Google Glass and had no issues.

This time, June 2014, we sit at a table in the back bar area, and order our drinks. The drinks (a beer and bloody mary) came to us, which were pretty average prices for happy hour. We ordered a few items from the happy hour menu. You wouldn't be reading this particular review if we ever actually got our food. What happened next is the reason I write this review of the staff and my experience at Charlie’s on Broadway.

At this time we had been inside about 10 minutes and were enjoying our drinks. A staff member comes up and says that I “must remove Google Glass. The bartender didn't know the policy.” I begin to explain how these are my prescription frames and how I don't own any others. He didn't care. I tell him that we had been in previously without any issues while wearing Google Glass. He didn't care. I even went as far as to reach in my bag for my GlassKap (a 3D printed cap which goes over the camera and/or the prism). I told him that I can put a cap on the camera, prism, AND turn off Google Glass, yet he still irrationally raised his voice and told me that I would have to remove Google Glass or leave.

I advised him that I don’t support nor give money to businesses, organizations, etc which don't allow me to be there without Google Glass and as such we wouldn't be paying for our drinks, and would simply leave. He stated that was fine and we gathered our belongings and left.

We ended up at local competitor's establishments for our dinner and will never spend another cent at Charlie’s on Broadway and again will advise every person I know to do the same. The staff member was irrational and wouldn’t listen to logic nor reason. He raised his voice at me when I was trying to offer solutions and I don’t need to be treated like that.

Don’t give Charlie’s on Broadway your business.

@124 I screenshot and sent my mother your words.

@36 not true and I didn't "fight" with the staff. I simply asked if it was their policy written or otherwise to not allow Glass. I know that the 5 Point Cafe has this policy and as such I don't go there.

I went in for dinner not a fight.

@30 I'd love to see Google Glass take a picture or video "non-stop" with it's 45 minute battery life while recording.

@13 @18 I wasn't doing anything WITH Glass while I was there, simply wearing it. My partner and I had just sat down and started to look over the menu when the 'night manger' came over and the rest of the story played out.
