Court orders padlocks on CA bar's doors over COVID violations, so owner removes doors

A Burbank restaurant has removed its doors after a court signed off on padlocking the bar’s entrance because the business was accused of defying coronavirus orders.

Lucas Lepejian, the co-owner of Tinhorn Flats Saloon & Grill, said the business was removing the doors of the restaurant after it was issued a temporary restraining order allowing Burbank to shut down the bar, NBC Los Angeles reported.

“We found out a judge signed off on padlocking our doors, so we took matters into our own hands,” said Lepejian. “If you don’t have doors, there’s nothing to (padlock.) We will continue to operate.”

The restaurant posted a photo of the doors being removed on Facebook on Wednesday, writing: “Lock is off... we open at 12 noon. We will NOT comply with illegal and unconstitutional rules and mandates.”

This should be interesting. How will the bar protect its inventory from thieves with their open door policy? I doubt that they will be able to keep their insurance policy in force.

3. What about rodents and other vermin,..

... do they just come and go at will ? Do they have a 24hr door check/bouncer to keep the mice, rats, and other vermin in check ?

5. I think Mr. Lepejian is about to learn what an Order to Show Cause means.

7. I used to go there a lot

I moved out to the west valley so I don't go anymore but that place was fun. Had a really nice outdoor area in the back.

That guy is nuts!
