Was meeting a few friends at the bar there when two security officers stopped me and escorted me out.
My crime? I was wearing a jacket that said "Evil Empire, Bronx NY".
Evidently, they think the NY Yankees are a gang. No gang colors permitted.
The difference between fiction and reality is that fiction is supposed to make sense.

I'm originally from The Bronx.
I would have saluted you and laughed with a smile.

I can see that they may inadvertently worry about a gang name there, other than a baseball reference.

Reminds me of the shopping mall that banned political slogans on tee shirts and required a man to leave because his shirt read "Stop Plate Tectonics".

I would have bought you a drink. When I lived in Baltimore, the Yankee's were often referred to by that term.

They were probably kicking out all the New Yorkers. That would be my policy :)

Too bad for you being mistakenly tag as a member of gang. You should be careful on wearing cloths that might create an impression with the security mostly from casinos. Just wear proper attire so you would meet trouble.
