Good for Olive Garden

Email Print

An Olive Garden restaurant in Alabama refused to let a Kiwanis Club meeting bring their banner or an American flag into the restaurant. Since the restaurant does not have a private dining area, “To be fair to everyone and avoid disrupting the dining experience for all other guests, they’re unable to accommodate flags or banners of any type in the dining room.” I certainly wouldn’t want to see an American flag in an Italian restaurant that I was eating at, or a Mexican or Chinese restaurant either. The fetish that some people have for the American flag is ludicrous.

Update: I just learned that Olive Garden has now apologized.
