Toby Keith’s I Love this Bar and Grill at Potomac Town Center finally opened this week, and with some controversy.
A sign on the door of the long-delayed restaurant reads “No guns permitted,” and that doesn’t sit well with some gun rights advocates.
On Monday, more than a dozen people posted their displeasure about the rule on the restaurant’s Facebook page, but by Tuesday all of those posts had been deleted.
Work has been slow in completing the new restaurant, with several opening dates coming and going, the first more than a year ago.
Last week, the restaurant announced on its Facebook page that it would be opening as soon as inspections were complete, but then posted there was a delay in getting ABC licenses from the state.
On Monday, employees posted that the licenses had been granted and “there’s nothing stopping us now.” By Tuesday evening, the restaurant was open for business.
Singer Kasey Ray Meeks is scheduled to perform Friday and Saturday.
