Seattle Restaurant Kicks Out Man Wearing Google Glass

Submitted by on December 1, 2013 – 2:46 pm6 Comments


Google Glass continue to make waves in public, as etiquette is sorted out for the new field of personal devices. This week, a Seattle man was asked to leave a restaurant for not removing his augmented reality spectacles; but the user fired back that the restaurant policy was inconsistent and contradictory.

Network engineer and Glass early adopter Nick Starr was dining at the Lost Lark Cafe and Lounge, a 24-hour diner and bar in Seattle’s Capitol Hill district, when a woman identifying herself as the night manager asked him to remove the device. Starr refused, and left the establishment.

In a Facebook post, Starr said the manager told him that Lost Lake’s sister establishment does not allow Google Glass. But Starr claims he had worn his Glass in Lost Lake many times before without incident, even attracting the curiosity of the staff.

Lost Lake has the same owner as 5 Points, a Seattle bar that made headlines recently by becoming the first establishment to preemptively ban Google Glass. And legislation has already been introduced in at least one state proposing a ban on the use of Glass while driving.

In their own Facebook post, Lost Lake called Starr “rude,” and posted an official anti-Glass policy for clarity.

The restaurant may have lost some moral high ground, though, when one of the owners publicly suggested that Starr was “an entitled-acting tech nerd,” and mocked a potential boycott by calling Glassers “man children stinking up the joint.”
