Google Glass  won’t be available to consumers for months, but there’s at least one Seattle bar where the eyewear will not be welcome.
The 5 Point , a self-described dive bar in Seattle’s Belltown neighborhood, posted a notice to its Facebook page  this week telling Glass Explorers looking to grab a pint that they will need to remove their $1,500 spectacles. The story was noted today on GeekWire .
“For the record, The 5 Point is the first Seattle business to ban in advance Google Glasses,” the post reads. “And ass kickings will be encouraged for violators.”
“I’m a thought leader,” deadpanned Dave Meinert, the bar’s owner, in an interview on Seattle’s KIRO-FM . “First you have to understand the culture of the 5 Point, which is a sometimes seedy, maybe notorious place. People want to go there and be not known…and definitely don’t want to be secretly filmed or videotaped and immediately put on the Internet.”
Meinert admitted he was having a bit of fun: “Part of this is a joke, to be funny on Facebook, and get reaction.”
