    Yeah, if the story true (and I believe it is), I just can't get over how horrible a business decision this was. 25 people is a whole lot of cash.

    I'd like actual evidence it even happened. I wouldn't put it past someone to just make up a baseless accusation because they were peeved at the service (for no reason, even) - Evidence that it happened would be surveillance footage. We could then see:

    1) How the group was behaving (if they were really there)
    2) Another customer actually complained (if it really happened)
    3) They were kicked out as a result of that complaint (if it really happened)

    If it even happened at all - it just might be a made up story beginning to end - which I think it is. Who in the hell supposedly waits for two hours to eat, anyway? That's the gist - they weren't even IN the restaurant. What were they supposedly doing? Chilling out in the parking lot for two hours? I don't think so - who in the hell would DO THAT?

    There is no evidence - this all started because of a Facebook post . . . and I'm not going to be the idiot who believes any of it without any sort of PROOF.

    Restaurants send away people who misbehave.
    They send away people because they are a group of TWENTY FOUR waiting for 2 hours and there's still no seating for TWENTY FOUR people. (This is what I expect happened - and the race/customer complaint is made up. If it happened at all).

    I just don't believe any of it. . . sounds like he's full of **** and trying to incite a race riot.

    Is this what we've come down to - believing anything that's on the internet as if it's some sort of truth.
    I nominate this as post of the year. No restaurant sends away 24 customers, and no manager would send away 24 minorities. This sounds like a total fabrication.

    What one person considers well-behaved, another may not. It is pretty subjective. That said, as a white person I have never been told for my group to leave a restaurant (if by never you mean about a dozen times)

    True, nobody really knows. Which is why I don't understand everyone who is jumping to defend the owners when they don't really know what happened, they just know that there's an accusation of racism and jump to "It must be false."

    I would like to know the rest of the story, if anyone finds it. People don't just get kicked out for waiting around, black or not. Something had to have happened.

    The primary problem in this issue is, we just don't know what happened, and people are taking the bit, then running with it, completely uninformed as to what happened.

    I was thinking maybe the "white" person had a personal problem with one of the group and he wanted to mess with them.

    I have been in a lot of resturants and I can't imagine any of them ejecting 24 paying customers for something one person said.

    That doesn't make financial sense.

    most places like this have tables and/or booths that seat 4. if it was a busy night, IOT seat 24 people they would have had to leave table sitting empty until they had 6 available tables. If you have a group that freaking big, call ahead. From what I read, they never even made it into the place but were waiting (either outside or in the entrance) for seating. you get 24 people standing around talking, things are going to get loud as people try to talk over each other.

    and how is that any different from those who just know that there's an accusation of racism and jump to "It must be true"?
