SHOOTERS GRILL STORYTIME I

In 2017, the morning after the Garfield rodeo, the country's public health office documented receiving calls from attendees who complained of food poisoning. Some reported severe symptoms.


They also reported "bare hand contact with ready to eat foods, no handwashing station [and] no barrier protection from insects." A Boebert spokesperson told The Beast that the restaurant "did not receive a fine or have any other type of disciplinary action." "Staff was told of several individuals who claimed to experience similar symptoms but say they did not consume food at the rodeo," the spokesperson said. The health department report said "100% of those interviewed with diarrhea ate pork sliders."

Lauren told a juvenile server at Shooters to pack heat at her diner just like the adult wait staff do.


“Well, because I’m seventeen, I actually can’t carry it everywhere,” said one of Boebert’s servers in a Barcroft TV interview, shot in 2015, referring to the gun on her hip. “I can carry at work because it’s Lauren’s private property. And she allows me to.” FACT: This is illegal.

In a story Boebert has made an integral part of her personal lore in speeches and interviews, she has often repeated that she decided to arm herself and her waitresses because she feared for everyone’s safety after a man was “murdered” in the alley behind her new restaurant.


“There was a violent altercation in our back alley where a man was physically beaten to death and it immediately prompted the question, ‘How will I defend my people?’ So, I began to carry that day,” Boebert told the Durango Herald last year.


The Rifle Police Department has no such record of the murder. A man did die on the sidewalk down the street from Shooters in the early morning of Aug. 22, 2013. Initially, it was investigated as a possible homicide, but an autopsy determined the man died from a drug overdose.
