Google Glass Explorers in the San Francisco area will be glad to know that not every bar is seeking to ban the technological gizmo. In fact, the Stanford Court hotel in the Nob Hill area is offering a special deal for Glass owners who come in for a drink. Just come on up to the bar and get your first drink on the house if you are wearing your Glass device.
The hotel’s general manager Michael Baier says “We want to attract the tech crowd, so we’re telling Google Glass wearers they’re welcome, along with everyone else.” The move is part of a larger effort to revamp the hotel to appeal to a tech rich crowd. The hotel does ask Glass owners who receive a free drink to snap a pic with their devices and tweet it along with the hashtag #stanfordcourt.
The Stanford Court’s welcoming attitude to Glass owners is at the opposite end of the spectrum from bars banning the devices. Those bars are being tracked by the Glasshole Free web site, which shows 13 such locations in San Francisco. Google is asking businesses to give culture and society time to sort out etiquette related to the devices rather than imposing bans.
