The turf war between Glassholes and everyone else continues to rage in San Francisco, and now a hotel is entering the fray. The Stanford Court in the Nob Hill neighborhood is now offering free cocktails to guests at their lobby bar who are wearing Google Glass, reports the SF Chronicle. Says the hotel in a statement: "The complimentary drink is geared toward the local tech crowd who own a pair, and might feel like an outcast or nuisance due to the recent string of negative press."

The negative press the hotel is referring to is the incident in which tech writer Sarah Slocum was allegedly attacked for wearing Google Glass at the San Francisco bar Molotov's. While some bars in San Francisco have since banned the wearable device, Stanford Court is trying to cultivate a tech-obsessed clientele by offering guests loaner iMacs, iPads, and soon Google Glass. Embracing Google Glass is apparently the hotel's way of letting guests to "experience the authentic San Francisco."
