Lewis Roberts, who is 4 years old and a snazzy dresser, picked out his finest sleeveless Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles tee for lunch at Atlanta’s Tavern at Phipps, but his family tried to get a table and were told that Roberts’s bright green shirt violated the “Gentlemen’s Dress Code.” Tavern higher-ups have since reached out to apologize, blaming a manager in training who had a “gross misunderstanding” of the policy. The family now says they’ll be happy to go back for the house specialty low-country boil, but the clear winner here is Roberts, who seems absolutely thrilled to be able to bust out some ninja moves on the local news.
