...Freemans tuesday night the 16th of nov. the bush twins along with 2 massive secret service men tried to have dinner they were told by the maitre 'd that they were full and would be for the next 4 years upon hearing the entire restaurant cheered and did a round of shots it was amazing!!! [Ed: We're hearing that this is actually true.]...


Admin Note:

Received forwarded message from info@freemansrestaurant.com 11/22/2004

Regarding the Internet rumors, no member of Freeman's staff made any derogatory or discriminating comments towards Jenna or Barbara Bush. We are a non-partisan establishment and pride ourselves on having a diverse clientele. The Bush twins or any member of the first family are welcome to join us for dinner anytime.

Gee, you might think some big bad freeper would start calling in phoney reservations to this place, saying how much they support their stance... like maybe a few dozen a night for the next 4 years ?

The only way to kill a hip restaurant in NYC is to get a mention on the Post's Page Six that Regis Philbin went there and enjoyed himself...

It's a privately owned restuarant, and they are refusing to served individuals for political reasons. They have that right, just as we have the right to encourage everyone we know not to eat there. If they wanna be dicks, let 'em. It's just one more example of liberal tolerance and acceptance of diversity, anyhow...

The Food

The affordable menu's inspiration stems from retro party appetizers and Midwest hunting lodges. Take the three best starters: nicely gamey wild boar pâté served with a few smashed raspberries and cornichon; baked artichoke dip thick with chokes; and Devils on Horseback--savory blue cheese-stuffed prunes wrapped with bacon.

Durn shame the girls missed out on this down home cookin.

Or, is Freeman's a private club where membership is required and this act doesn't apply?

"We reserve the right to refuse service to anyone."

Or, has private property rights suddenly fallen out of fashion now that Bush is in office?

Thank you AR.

For any who are not yet aware, the Ann Coulter Rule has been amended to include the Bush Twins.

In any thread which they are the subject, at least one photo is to be posted.

Nothing like coming back to the Midwest hunting lodge after a day in the field to have some boar pâté and stuffed prunes. Yummy and very Midwestern. (Have these people ever been west of the Hudson?)

It is in downtown NY. While I can't say for certain that everyone cheered, my best guess would be at least 85% cheered.

I lived there for 33 years, I know. ;-)

We could all call and reserve tables for Saturday night...and then not show up.

Have you ever seen the old I Love Lucy in which the club doesn't renew Ricky's contract, and Lucy, Fred and Ethel take action? With the help of Ethel's contact with a theatrical costumer, they show up numerous times for their "reservations" for 12 or 16 or 20 and loudly refuse to stay because Ricky's not there. (It was a great episode!) Well, it worked . . .

Any NYC restaurant that is considered "hot" will request a phone number for confirmation when the reservation is made. And they will call back to confirm. Those that are less than "hot" will had the table for exactly 10 minutes before giving it away. And those that aren't "hot," it doesn't matter. Nobody is showing up, anyway.

If this item makes the news, then it'll pack the place for a week before dying out. The same thing happened when the Water Club refused to serve employees of GE

The last thing you'd want to do is be served in a restaurant where you're not welcome, by dirty filthy Dems.

In New York City, or anywhere I suppose, it's safer to pick from buffets. At least you know you're not a target in particular...

Yes, if it can be proven that the restruant was NOT full, and if they want to get lawyers involved...

Forget it. In the real days this would have been handled with true results. Next week just to upset them for Thanksgiving they would have received an IRS audit notification. That would have puckered their spenctor.

If you want to shut down a restaurant that is frequented by NYC-type liberals, just get the word out that you saw an African-American eating there once.

I just called!!!!! The Manager, William, claims he cannot comment on his guests. I stated "Well then I can assume that you turned away the Bush twins and made a discriminatory statement that they would not be welcomed for four more years?" Again he stated that he does not comment on his guests. I told him that we will find out the truth anyway and he kinda thought that was funny, whereas I told him that we will be hearing from "us." I did not mention who "US" was.

I suggest we do what we do best.......make some noise to this place of business and make them very uncomfortable. They are obviously finding this very humourous.

"giving the place a quirky edge, as do the tattoed, waifish servers"

Sounds like the waiters and probably the Maitre D are Kerry Fudgepackers, who had a gay snit fit.

Good thing. Who wants to eat in a restaurant staffed with tattoed waifish servers (Probably with more metal in their ears, lips and eyelids that in the ibeams of the building!). Who knows what fatal or semi fatal infectious diseases could be lurking if one ate in a dive like this.

I was just thinking along those lines...LOL

I think all of us Freepers in the area should make reservations on a given date. Everyone arrive about 15-30 minutes apart. The last couple arriving make a loud scene. Like: "Honey isn't this where the Bush twins were turned away recently?" At which point all Freeper diners get up and leave. :)

Yeah, I seriously doubt the entire restaurant cheered.

In fact, I doubt it happened at all.

This year, there was a 36 % increase in the number of NYC voters who voted for Bush compared to 2000. And Kerry got 9000 fewer votes than Al Gore did.

...this law specifies "race, color, religion, or national origin"

When differentiating between conservatives and libs, human is a "race".
Therefore, the Bush twins have grounds to sue.
