I have seen the entrance at the bar area and they give you the option to sit in either place and the rest rooms are usually off the bar area. So when you come in it's a technical violation and if you have to go to the bathroom it's a violation, etc. The 51% rule doesn't bother me and if you have a restaurant with a bar area the law should read if you carry you don't drink. Drawing some imaginary line on the floor just doesn't work for me.

In the live free or die state we have no such laws. You want to go to a bar and drink your brains out and carry, have at it. I have only heard of one instance were someone carrying got into a bar fight outside and pulled a concealed handgun and shot the other guy, he lived. The police were not amused and the shooter is in the system. I don't advocate drinking and carrying but I would rather have it that way than some weird rules dreamed up by a legislator that was probably half cocked when he did it.

As to open carry, I think slinging AR's and walking around in public while being videoed is poor judgment and I question their motivation. Were they looking to get all carry banned?
It is a strange law. I know of a few bar/restaurants that are claimed to be under the 51%, but I suspect it's only because of the unreported cash income of the bar.

There is a restaurant in Bay City, TX called Fat Grass that has a big bar area and a separate dining area. If you go there before 5:00PM they seat you at a table in the bar area and you can get burgers, sandwiches or some entrees it is a restaurant with a bar in it. It isn't a 51% place because they have good food and sell a lot of it. The restrooms are off that area as well. I see a similar set up with a lot of places. I guess those won't work in a state where the bar area is off limits. I think Florida has that same law.

The open carry movement still doesn't understand the difference between can and should.

I'm not for or against open carry. I'll continue to conceal carry.
