UPDATE 2/23/2011: Find an update to this story here.

This story first appeared on Elliott (and quickly moved to Mediaite and Consumerist, among others). It's about a "Seattle-area restaurant" that refuses to serve TSA agents:

“We have posted signs on our doors basically saying that they aren’t allowed to come into our business,” she says. “We have the right to refuse service to anyone. My boss flies quite a bit and he has an amazing ability to remember faces. If he sees a TSA agent come in we turn our backs and completely ignore them, and tell them to leave.

Their kind aren’t welcomed in our establishment.
...
We even have the police on our side and they have helped us escort TSA agents out of our cafe. Until TSA agents start treating us with the respect and dignity that we deserve, then things will change for them in the private sector."

The comparisons between TSA agents and Nazis are flying hot and heavy in the comments of these posts. The one thing none of the stories note is the name of the TSA-banning establishment. Does anyone on Slog know which restaurant this is?
