The backlash against Google Glass is growing. A few weeks ago, a Molotov's bar patron was attacked for wearing her Google Glass. Since then, the bar and various other eateries, watering holes, and retail stores in the Bay Area have banned the wearable tech device from the premises. But not everyone is anti-Glass. Business Insider reports that the bar in the Stanford Court hotel in Nob Hill pours a free drink for Glass wearers. Take note, Glassholes. Or perhaps another review of Google's etiquette manual will help? Readers, what say you? Will you be heading to Stanford Court or to the Glasshole-free establishments?
