A restaurant owner made headlines this week when he posted a sign at the front of his business that has everyone talking.
According to AWM, the sign on the front door of Kabuto Japanese Steakhouse and Sushi Bar off WT Harris Boulevard reads:
“Take your hood down.
Pull your pants up.
Finish your phone conversation.
Marijuana smell not allowed.
We will be glad to assist you.”
Though the sign has been up for three years, it only recently went viral after it was replaced with a larger version. While some are outraged about the sign, others love it.
“It’s actually the best response we’ve ever had,” restaurant owner Martin Tanaka said. “More people think that more places should do it.”
Tanaka’s restaurant offers hibachi-style seating, meaning patrons often share tables with strangers. Because of this, it is important to the owner that his customers be respectful towards each other. Tanaka added the marijuana part to the sign last week after patrons complained about the smell.
“We have to turn them out because we don’t like that in our establishment,” he said.
Some loudmouth liberals have accused the restaurant of racism because of the sign.
“It looks like they are trying to say something about some kind of race,” said one local resident.
Other people love the sign.
“I mean, it is his restaurant and he chooses whatever he wants to put up,” customer Sinai Hernandez said. “It’s like if I wanted to put up rules in my house.”
Tanaka told reporters that the sign has nothing to do with race, and that he often gives offenders a second chance. If they don’t fix the problem, however, he will ask them to leave.
