Everyone is Welcome (Official Trailer)

Everyone is Welcome is a documentary that tells the story of one bar owner’s fight against the DC government that tried to shut him down.

In January 2022, in a deeply misguided attempt to combat the COVID-19 virus, Washington, DC mayor Muriel Bowser, along with her counterparts in most other major cities, required business owners to deny access to any customers not proven to be vaccinated against the disease. Eric Flannery, an affable, apolitical veteran who wanted nothing more than to serve good food and drink to his local community via his bar and restaurant, The Big Board, located on H Street in northeast DC. When he was told that he would have to check vaccination records before admitting his loyal customers to his bar, he decided to take a stand.

You can track his case on The Buckeye Institute website:
