'Olive Garden:American Flag Would Disrupt Dinning Experience':Update:Olive Garden Apologizes For Banning Old Glory

Old Glory denied admittance to Alabama Olive Garden:

Marti Warren of Anniston said she wasn't allowed to bring an American flag into an Olive Garden for a planned Kiwanis Club banquet in the east Alabama town of Oxford.
Olive Garden said:

"To be fair to everyone and avoid disrupting the dining experience for all other guests, they're unable to accommodate flags or banners of any type in the dining room,"
Olive Garden doesn't have to worry abot me "disrupting the dining experience" of anyone there,by me displaying my U.S. currency there.

BTW,Johnny Corrinos is better!

Update: Olive Garden has come to its senses:
Olive Garden issued this statement: "We are very sorry for any misunderstanding about this issue. We do not have a policy at Olive Garden concerning bringing the American flag into our restaurants. Some members of our team were misinformed about company policy by our corporate office. As a company, we take responsibility for that and we regret it.  We take pride in how we communicate to our restaurants and we are correcting this so it doesn't happen again. Like all Americans, we have nothing but the utmost respect and admiration for the American flag and everything it symbolizes, and we welcome anyone who wishes to bring the flag into our restaurants. In fact, we periodically provide American flag collar pins to our employees to wear while serving guests."
