California bar doesn’t allow Nats hats

February 19, 2014

Obviously it’s no secret that plenty of people wear Nationals hats for reasons other than baseball fandom.

And obviously, Nats hats have been seemed to be especially popular among non-fans in California.

In fact, I might have already written something about the dress code at Cabo Cantina, a Southern California chain boasting “good drinks, good food and good prices in a fun, casual atmosphere.” But I can’t remember for sure. So I’m doing it again.

Among the many rules posted on this dress code — “no visible undergarments,” “no bandanas or do-rags,” “no hoods on,” “no clothing with vulgar or offensive print” — is this one: “No Los Angeles Dodgers or Washington Nationals baseball caps.”

This came to my attention after reader @Bobtimist send along the above Instagram taken by California musician Kreayshawn. A quick social media search indicates Cabo Cantina has had this policy for at least 18 months. In other words, even before Bryce Harper ran into a Los Angeles wall.
