    Last week I met the owner of the place. He misgendered my partner. Blamed them for it. Got angry that he was getting corrected by a group of 6 of his patrons. Referred to my partner as a thing. Then walked off trying to find someone sympathetic to his "side." And then from what I've heard started talking about committing physical violence against transgender people. This was my favorite bar. I go here multiple times a week. All of his employees are caring, understanding, aware and so far from transphobic. I can never walk in there again knowing that I'd be supporting someone that has these beliefs and disrespected my family so blatantly. Knowing that we are not welcome there.

    It was ok. We got there kind of early on a Thursday night, but we needed to get more money because they don't accept cards. They did have an ATM in the back behind the bar, but it's ancient, and needs to be upgraded for the chip reader soon (This coming from an ATM owner). The ATM kept throwing network errors and the bartender seemed aware but said the owner did not want to do anything about fixing it. So the bartender suggested we go next door and use their ATM. I am sorry, but I am not going next door to use an ATM and then come back. I am there, I want to stay there, so when we left, we left. We wanted to stay, but apparently they don't care enough to do what it takes to ensure people stay in the bar.
