Wearing A Mask? Cafe Charges $5 Extra

Yesterday I mentioned a promoter charging $999 for tickets to a punk concert for those who couldn’t prove vaccination. Today

California Cafe Charges Patrons $5 for Wearing Masks: ‘It’s Their Choice’

Patrons are free to say what they wish at a California cafe, but doing so while wearing a mask will cost them $5.

On Sunday, Fiddleheads Cafe in Mendocino put up a sign stating the fee for those who wear a mask while ordering, NBC News reported Friday.

In March, the establishment announced a 50 percent discount for people who threw their masks in the garbage, according to owner Chris Castleman.

“I don’t think $5 to charity is too much to ask from mask wearing customers who claim to care so much about the community they live in,” he told the outlet in an email.

The proceeds will be given to Project Sanctuary, a domestic abuse organization, for two weeks before another nonprofit is put into the rotation, according to Castleman.

“It’s about time that the proponents of these ineffective government measures start paying for the collateral damage they have collectively caused,” the owner continued.

As you can guess, the masked people were shocked and angry and Outraged, but, a few did pay the $5. The question is, is this necessary? I understand the point Castleman is making, but, look, some people feel more comfortable wearing the mask. I have a few coworkers that still do, one because they worry about catching it, even though vaccinated, causing problems for his kids as a single parent. I respect the choice. I doubt the masks make much of a difference, however, it’s an individual choice. Let them do their thing if it makes them feel safer. Of course, if they’re CovidVirtue Signaling, that’s a different story, like those voluntarily wearing a mask but leaving their mouth uncovered.

It is a private business, though, and Castleman can do this if he wants. But, he might start a trend where other businesses start doing this for those who don’t wear a mask. And, being California, I would not be surprised if Government comes to have a chat with him.

Speaking of choices, here’s a bad one

Demonstrators gather outside Nashville hat store that offered ‘not vaccinated’ yellow Star of David badges

The owner of a Nashville hat store is being accused of anti-Semitism after announcing the sale of yellow Star of David badges, similar to the ones Nazis forced Jews to wear during the Holocaust, which read “NOT VACCINATED.”

Nashville’s hatWRKS posted a photo on Instagram on Friday announcing the sale of a Star of David patch that says “NOT VACCINATED,” according to CNN affiliates WZTV and WSMV. The post has since been removed.

The caption on the post read: “patches are here!! they turned out great. $5ea. strong adhesive back …. we’ll be offering trucker caps soon.”

After the post was removed, another hatWRKS post from Friday said, “people are so outraged by my post? but are you outraged with the tyranny the world is experiencing? if you don’t understand what is happening, that is on you, not me.”

This was really in poor taste. What point was hatWRKS trying to make? Pro-vaccine? Anti-vaccine? You can make a guess either way, based on the info in the 2nd and 4th paragraphs. Whatever the reason, it was really dumb, and there are lots of protesters protesting, and Stetson, the maker of lots of western apparel, especially their hats, will no longer allow the shop to sell their products. That’s some serious cash.

    Fiddleheads? Has a Mainiac opened a Pyrite State restaurant?

    To me, it’s now about telling the truth. When we had the illegal and unconstitutional mask mandates for everybody, not wearing a mask was an act of political resistance, and I did so as often as possible.

    But now, wearing a mask when you have been vaccinated is, in effect, lying to everybody, a statement that you have not been vaccinated. Sadly, the reverse is true: not wearing a mask when you have not been vaccinated is also a lie.

    • Hairy says:

      Apparently you feel that vaccinated people can not transmit the virus to other people
      That is incorrect
      Certainly the risk is much less but not ironclad
      If wearing a mask is considered virtue signaling is not wearing a mask signaling “I dont give a shit about anyone but myself and I want everyone else to know it”?

        No doubt John’s one the ones that wears a mask while driving alone in his car, but then will go into a restaurant and sit at a table with 3 other people about a foot away wearing no masks. *Science*

      • Dana says:

        If a vaccinated person can transmit the virus to someone else, then isn’t it incumbent upon the other person to either wear a mask, or get vaccinated, or simply accept the greater risk?

        Wearing a mask after vaccination is considered a sign of sheepleness. No, “not wearing a mask signaling ‘I dont give a shit about anyone but myself and I want everyone else to know it’,” because you have no idea whether the maskless person is vaccinated or not.

        But it is the way the sheeple tried to frame the argument before widespread vaccination. The idea that some of us believed that the illegal and unconstitutional restrictions on our lives were a worse threat, a far worse threat, to our country and our democracy, simply never occurred to you.

      • drowningpuppies says:

        “Our findings do not support the hypothesis that SARS-CoV-2 transmission rates decrease with greater public mask use. Masks may promote social cohesion as rallying symbols during a pandemic, but risk compensation can also occur.” University of Louisville report which concludes, using the CDC’s own data, masks didn’t slow the spread of the Wuhan virus from China…CHINA!

    The USA did a piss poor response to covid
    We had a Prez who told us that the virus would magically disappear in April when it hot warmer
    People like Teach parroted that it was all “fake news” just trying to hurt Our Dear Leader
    Vietnam has had less than 50 deaths total
    Why couldn’t we do better than 600000?

    • Jl says:

      More BS from John-“press said it would magically disappear in April.” Not so, John. Dr. Fauci said “Trump’s public statements about the virus were no different than the sentiments expressed during White House coronavirus task meetings”. Meaning of course, that whatever was said was originally from the “experts”
      “Poor response to covid” What was the poor response and what should have been done? Remember, when Trump instituted the China travel ban he was criticized by Biden and Pelosi as being “racist and xenophobic”. Not only do you have a very selective memory, you have a very short memory

    So what charity is the money going? It might be one you do not want to support.
