Last time I – and Ace of Spades HQ (unlike the AP) – checked, Associated Press, naming something a ‘bar and grill’ kind of suggests that it’s a restaurant. Which would suggest that yes, in point of fact, Bristol Palin would be allowed to be actually in it and have, say, dinner. I mean, seriously: they have both a breakfast and a kid’s menu.
You know, when I first encountered this phenomenon, I was honestly just joking when I described this sort of thing done by various and sundry (and rather furtive) individuals and groups as being part of a rather bizarre sexual fetish. I still describe it that way; only now I’m no longer joking.
