When it comes to governors who can’t seem to follow their own rules, California’s Gavin Newsom may be second only to New York’s Andrew Cuomo.
If you’ll recall, Newsom recently attended a fancy-pants birthday dinner at the French Laundry — as in, inside of the restaurant — despite forbidding other Californians to do the same. And it’s not just would-be diners who are pissed off; it’s restaurant owners, too.
Restaurant owners like Alex of Eat At Joe’s in Redondo Beach, who, rather than indulging Newsom’s hypocrisy, is sending an important message to California’s powers that be:
This Redondo Beach restaurant has a not so subtle message for CA. Owner Alex says he’s defying LA County orders to close outdoor dining because it’s not about him, it’s about all the workers that rely on him for livelihoods, and he can’t leave them stranded right before Christmas pic.twitter.com/rRlUGlKbkR

That place is an institution. I went there every day as a young man. My mother worked there. Good for Alex.

This was my family’s favorite breakfast spot for many many years. I always stop in when I’m back in LA.
Great place. I’m sure they still have hour long lines for breakfast.
I wish them so much luck!! This is the way we’re gonna have to do this. Thanks for paving the way 🙌
