8 cops turned away at Buffalo Wild Wings for guns
The officers were on-duty but plain-clothed, and employees refused to serve them for their exposed guns

MANASSAS, Va. — Eight police officers were refused service at Buffalo Wild Wings on Wednesday, apparently because they had their weapons displayed.
The group walked into the Buffalo Wild Wings located near Wellington Road and Market Street, but were refused service by an employee who said they had to secure the guns before they would be served.
“… There is no reason why those officers should have been asked to leave … police officers are always welcome in my establishment and even though we do have a no gun policy, as a company that excludes off duty police officer,” General manager Scott Lupton wrote. “As a company we are community oriented. We appreciate everything that police officers do for us.”
