Discrimination by beverage choice?

Dear Editor:On Super Bowl Sunday I walked into the Red Onion to watch the game. I ordered nachos and ice water then continued to watch the game. Somewhere in the third quarter someone asked me to leave because I was not ordering any more food and the table was needed. I mentioned that a customer next to me was sitting and drinking beer and was not asked toleave.So apparently I was being discriminated against because of my choice of beverages. My table was only large enough for two people, and someone had taken the other chair. So it was not as if I was taking up a great deal of space.This has troubled me since that day so I wanted to comment on it.Howard LeeAspen
