Detroit Starter's Bar and Grill: Wear a mask!!

How often do you go out to eat? I used to do so at least once every two weeks or so. But with the COVID-19 pandemic and the resulting quarantine orders I stopped doing that. Living is more important than that perfect Caprese salad.

Even with the slight relaxation of the governor's orders regarding COVID-19 I haven't gone out to eat. And I don't think I have any intention of doing that any time soon. The juice isn't worth the squeeze in my opinion. There have been a number of situations across the country where people have entered establishments without masks and confronted or been confronted by employees or other customers who are wearing masks. Some of these encounters have turned violent. Well in Detroit we do things differently. 

Instead of a scofflaw entering an establishment without a mask and demanding service, a woman wearing a mask entered a restaurant/bar and asked an employee not wearing a mask to start wearing one. This apparently aggrieved the bar employee so much that she started making threats of imminent body harm to the customer. Fortunately this time, it didn't come to that.

DETROIT (FOX 2) - As people get used to the mask mandate there has been no shortage of tension over who is or is not wearing one. The latest confrontation went down at Detroit's Starter's Bar and Grill bar when a bartender refused to wear a face covering. It appears to have been an isolated incident but Starter's is not taking it lightly. The employee in question has been suspended.


"My waitress was excellent she had on her mask the whole time, no problem. My only issue was the person talking over my food and as I noticed, that is why she got irate when I started recording," said Andrea Williams. "She was speaking over everybody's food."

"When I asked her not to speak over my food, she began to just berate me and call me names and nobody was able to calm her."
