Brooks’ Place, a Cypress, Texas BBQ restaurant, decided to promote itself and the Second Amendment at the same time. “Present your CHL this Saturday the 4th of July and receive a FREE SANDWICH with your purchase of a sandwich or anything priced higher. Have both CHL and CONCEALED GUN and dessert is FREE too,” their Facebook page read. The results were entirely predictable . . .
What a Historic Day at Brooks’ Place today. By the looks of the support we may have just started something. Brooks’ Place 1st Annual CHL and CARRY DAY. How Bout That?…
Here is something interesting about today. There were more WOMEN than MEN carrying concealed today. Gotta Love It . . .
SOLD OUT!!! Thank you for supporting the cause. CHL Day is History one for the books. Thank you and thank you to all the good guys for Carrying.
Appealing to citizens carrying legal guns is a winning strategy. It attracts a top level clientèle while increasing security at the restaurant.
The comment about more women carrying than men is particularly telling. It will be interesting to see what other holidays this strategy will be applied to. The end result may be simply a blanket discount for armed customers, as has happened elsewhere. We recently reported on the phenomena in Arkansas as well.
The security benefits can be multiplied after the first of the year, when licensed open carry will be legal in Texas. Brooks could offer a free meal with open carry on the 1st of January, when the law goes into effect. I suspect that they would sell out again. I also suspect that this will not be the last of such promotions. [Brooks’ is located at 18020 Fm 529 Rd Cypress, Texas, northeast of Houston.]
