Molon Labe - Coffee Edition

https://www.wave3.com/2020/11/24/come-take-it-lexington-coffee-shop-defies-order-close




The coffee shop has a garage door that the owner has propped open that he says should allow him to serve people inside, like other restaurants are doing with tents.

But the Lexington Fayette County Health Department decided against it, issuing the enforcement notice for brewed to stop serving in-person dining.

Owner Andrew Cooperrider told us he simply refused. The health department then revoked his food permit but the restaurant remains serving. You can watch our full interview with him at the bottom of this story.

They're not the only ones publicly defying the King.  Here are some of the others that have PUBLICLY declared freedom of choice:

Beans - Dry Ridge
Travelers Lantern - Trenton
Wingz 2.0 - London

....any others to add to the list?

(please only list establishments that have publicly announced open for dine in)

I don’t even like coffee but I’ll find time to head over there soon.

I happen to be in Lex... might have to grab some coffee for the ride to Beans... I have eaten there before, good stuff.  Bet it will taste even better now!

Reynolds and 27 is the most atrocious traffic intersection in all of Fayette county.

I begin avoiding it the first of November through January the next year.

They have beer.

King Andy took their liquor license.  28 people there when I was, great coffee.  Said the line had been out the door all morning.  Folks from L'ville, Richmond, Winchester, Gtown.

Couldn't serve food (not sure why but I think their choice, too busy making good coffee) but I did get cookies to hold me over until I get to Beans in Dry Ridge.
Link Posted: 11/25/2020 8:28:41 PM EST
No beer, but very good coffee. Excellent service even with most everything sold out.

Link Posted: 11/25/2020 8:51:45 PM EST
Good for them!

The way I see it, if you can go indoors for sports ball, anything else is A-OK

If it were my store I don't know if I'd keep those there. Maybe tear them in half, and re-tape them. I wouldn't want people who respect tyranny to visit my shop but I also wouldn't want to make it look like I'm hiding the government's actions of tyranny by taking down the signs.

Heck yeah! I’m in KY to see the ark, staying right by Beans, and looked up their menu and saw their message. I was going to grab dinner from them tonight but I guess they closed early for Black Friday but it looks like they will be open tomorrow. We are going to say forget the free hotel breakfast and take our family of 6 there instead. I love spending my money at any establishment with enough balls to stand up to these ridiculous orders.

I need to make a trip to Lexington to spend some money at this guys place.

That's some real bullshit. Know more than a few who work at restaurants, this order by King Andy is totally destroying folks lives.

January can't come soon enough.

I remember joking about if we were getting our freedoms back for 4th of July.

January won’t be any different. Mark my words.

Well Andy is trying to defy court rulings on religious schools in person learning.

If this is his course, when the ga modifies krs39 and he doesn’t comply that could be good grounds for impeachment.
Link Posted: 12/1/2020 2:28:42 PM EST
The Merrick Inn is shutting down, the numbers just didn't add up.

Hope they can survive to the Spring or whenever King Andy's bullshit comes to an end.

I know quite a few Boone county sheriffs. They say they won’t shut anyone down. But they haven’t been told to yet either, talks cheap when your job ain’t on the line.

KSP I could see gladly dragging a business owner out in cuffs.

The Fayette Co Health Dept tried to call Lexington Metro Police to get them to shut down Brewed. LEx PD told them "no, not our job". Brewed responded by giving all first responders 50% off for now on.

The Krown is not happy with the defiance and is seeking to have a judge hold the business owner in contempt.

Getting into jail time territory for disregarding his tyranny

I thought the owner ended up obeying the Judge's decision on the matter?   Not that he agreed with it but basically stated he was going to abide by it.

Unless something has changed.

The girlfriend and I were in there on Sunday. They were selling their shirts as well as bags of coffee. They also sold us a paper coffee cup, which we then took outside to the nearby food truck, that served Brewed's coffee and filled it up. We then went back into Brewed to enjoy their "public gathering space".

Fuck you, Andy.
