Colorado Restaurant Opens To Mother’s Day Crowds Despite State Order

by Michael John Scott

Some people are just born stupid.  One can only believe if their brains were put into thimbles they would rattle upon shaking.  The day before Mother’s Day, the owners of a Colorado eatery declared on Twitter,

“We are standing for America, small businesses, the Constitution and against the overreach of our governor in Colorado!!”

On Sunday, it became clear what C&C Coffee and Kitchen in Castle Rock meant: It reopened for dine-in service, in violation of the state’s public health order that has kept restaurants limited to delivery and takeout service during the coronavirus pandemic, until at least May 26.  Hundreds of idiots weren’t daunted by possibly contracting the virus, getting sick, or even dying.  They were going to stand up for the ‘constitution’ and show that pesky governor what a real ‘murican looks like.

How bizarre and reckless is this behavior?  The purpose behind ‘stay at home’ and ‘business closed’ orders is to keep people SAFE from COVID-19, and has nothing to do with the constitution or overreach.

Video taken by a local reporter shows a packed establishment, with the owner noting that the crowd was “almost double a normal Mother’s Day.” CBS Denver reports that it doesn’t appear anyone in the crowd was wearing masks; the Washington Post says it spotted one.

“It was unbelievable,” curbside pickup customer Nick Whitehill tells the Denver Post on how close the customers were to each other, adding that even employees weren’t wearing face coverings. He says he’s filed a complaint with the local health department.

Owner April Arellano had posted on Facebook she’d “go out of business if I don’t do something.” That since-deleted post also noted for customers: “No mask no problem btw,” per the Castle Rock News-Press.

A rep for Gov. Jared Polis’ office said that restaurants like Arellano’s that violate the health order…

“…are not only breaking the law, they are endangering the lives of their staff, customers, and community.”

A rep for Colorado’s health department noted that flouting the order is a misdemeanor punishable by a fine of $1,000 or up to a year in jail.

    Whoa! There are always fools in every crowd, and sometimes the crowd makes up the fools as in this case. Is it wrong for me to secretly hope they all get sick?
