Landlord for Lauren Boebert’s gun-themed restaurant cancels her lease for ‘moral’ reasons

Colorado GOP Rep. Lauren Boebert is in danger of losing her Hooter’s inspired, gun-themed restaurant, according to statements she made to The Daily Beast.

Boebert says she and her husband received a notice from her landlord that the lease for her “Shooters Grill” restaurant will not be renewed after the property’s ownership changed hands last month.

“[Boebert] didn’t explain exactly why her business was being kicked out,” The Beast reports. “A person familiar with the arrangement said the property manager felt he had a ‘moral’ imperative to close the business, and had planned to lease the space to another restaurant.”

According to The Beast, although the restaurant played a role in defining Boebert’s persona, it was never a financial success. “The restaurant turned in a streak of six-figure annual losses leading up to Boebert’s 2020 election, and struggled to stay above water even after she shot to fame as a MAGA darling,” The Beast reports.

From The Daily Beast:

Boebert told The Daily Beast that Shooters had cut its previous rent checks to Dan Meskin’s father—Mike Meskin, who owned the building through Meskin Enterprises. She didn’t remark on Dan, who was named in a local Post Independent story from 2016 as the building’s property manager.

It’s not clear what morality the new owners are acting on. County records indicate the father-son deed transfer went through on May 26, two days after the Robb Elementary School massacre in Uvalde, Texas. That same day, Boebert remarked that after the 9/11 terrorist attacks, “We didn’t ban planes.”
