Players' Retreat Offering Special LGBT Sandwich, All Proceeds Go To Equality NC

Posted by on Thu, Apr 14, 2016 at 3:16 PM

A venerable Raleigh restaurant is using a simple sandwich to fight back against HB 2. Players' Retreat alongside Hillsborough Street is offering a special "LGBT sandwich"—a BLT with guacamole on local multi-grain bread—for $10, with all proceeds donated to Equality NC.

"We decided we wanted to support the fight for equality for everyone," says owner Gus Gusler. "Hopefully, the state legislators will come back and do something about this, but I doubt they will."

Gusler says the sandwich went on sale yesterday and it's "selling great"; at lunch yesterday, he says they sold about twenty-five, and last night, friends were sending him pictures of themselves eating the sandwich. It will be available as a special for the next week.

"[HB 2] is doing a lot of harm," Gusler says. "First and foremost, it’s assaulting a lot of people, but these people are supposed to be pro-business. This is a very anti-business decision."
