this place open again?
Has the Health Department come in for a sweep before thy issued the license?
AND DONT SAY "LICENSE??"
Step up to the glossy, red counter at Conservative Grounds, a coffee shop in Largo, Fla., for a steaming cup of coffee or sugary pastry.
Past a blue and white star-studded floor, take a picture with cardboard cutouts of President Trump and first lady Melania Trump in a reproduction of the Oval Office.
Maybe purchase a “black coffee matters” shirt or “Make America Great Again” red cap.
The store, which had a soft opening last Saturday, is a space for Trump supporters to gather for events or just a caffeinated beverage, said co-owner Cliff Gephart.
“It’s a place for conservatives to feel welcome,” Gephart told local news. “There’s not going to be anyone throwing a drink in your face because you’re wearing a MAGA hat."
But it’s not political, Gephart insists.
“I don’t feel like we’re catering to one party,” the Republican told The Washington Post. “It’s about a conservative lifestyle.”
Since the store was announced, Republicans and Democrats alike have taken to social media, either praising Gephart’s stand against “latté liberals” or critiquing him for sowing division. During the Trump administration, partisan strife has played out in real life as well, with Republicans facing skirmishes in public spaces when people react to their red caps. In Largo, even neighboring businesses have taken precautions in advance of the coffee shop opening.
“Our community isn’t as polarizing as this makes us seem,” Andrew Apted, who owns Dharma Kava Lounge in the same strip mall, said about Conservative Grounds. “It’s dividing us over coffee of all things, and coffee shouldn’t divide us because we all like coffee.”
