18. It was more than one Denny's.

They shit on Secret Service agents in Annapolis, (see post 16) and they crapped on people in several locations in California. It's in the blood with those people, apparently:

In California, the restaurant chain faces a
civil suit from 32 African-American plaintiffs, many of whom
were involved in the allegedly discriminatory incidents that
prompted the Justice Department lawsuit.

They maintain their civil rights were violated when Denny's
denied them full service because of race. Their complaint,
filed March 24 in U.S. District Court in northern California,
describes cases in which a black child was denied a Denny's
"Birthday Meal" unless the family could produce a birth
certificate; waitresses refusing to take black customers'
orders; blacks being forced to pay for their meals before
being served; police being called to eject blacks, and a
company policy of "black out" periods when managers would
instruct employees to start limiting the number of black
patrons.

McManus would not comment on the ongoing litigation, but
when many of these allegations were made by the Justice
Department, Denny's officially denied discriminatory practices.

The instances allegedly occurred in five Denny's restaurants
in San Diego, San Jose, Vallejo and Sacramento. Denny's
operates 1,460 retaurants nationwide. TW Services, Denny's
parent company, also includes 215 Quincy's Family Steak Houses,
200 El Pollo Loco retaurants, 530 Hardees restaurants, as well
as concessions at Yankee Stadium, the Los Angeles Memorial
Coliseum, Yellowstone National Park and amusement parks. Dyson,
one of the black Secret Service agents, said he did not know of
the restaurant's troubles elsewhere. But when he learned that
others had made allegations similar to his, he was even
angrier.
