No Service!

The bell chimes when the door opens. 
This was a usual affair of this restaurant that served an economical menu to anybody and everybody who would walk in. 

But today when the door creaked open, all eyes fell on this individual. The noise of cutlery dimmed. The jaws of many customers dropped as they stared at this person who walked in with confidence. As he stood at the counter waiting to be seated. 
The waitress gave him a dirty look. 
He looked poised and unperturbed. 
"Excuse me, Sir," she said with an acerbic tone, "No Service if No clothes!" 

 In 99 words (no more, no less) write a story about something or someone not allowed. Maybe it’s about gender, race or other intolerance. Maybe it’s the cat who paws at the door, but not allowed inside. Maybe it’s a trail where dogs are not allowed. Go light, go dark, go where the prompt leads you.
