The Police Cars Outnumbered the Protestors....... UPDATED
And, apparently by instruction from the police, they were restricted to standing across the street. (This is not the first time this writer has seen such restrictions upon bar protestors; a similar order was directed to protestors opposing a paid speech by Irish Republican Army member Gerry Adams at Mick O'Shea's years ago.)
So they were standing under the awning of--wait for it--Bad Decisions.
That is really all that needs to be said.
The bar had specials on Flying Dog's new Disobedience, Monty Python's Holy Grail Ale, and Maudite ("Damned" or "Condemned" in French) on draft, as well as a "Gluttony Tots" ("Tater Tots" covered in gravy) special. Patrons filled the bar and surrounding sidewalk for the "free entertainment."
