BIG BEND — A Big Bend, Wisconsin bar is attempting to get around Gov. Evers' recent emergency order on indoor capacity limits by saying it is switching to hosting "political rallies" and "church services."

Papa Stache Pub & Eatery said on Facebook they are temporarily your "destination for daily political rallies and church services" and urged customers to worship "the Sun God" with them as the business has some work done on its bar over the weekend.

This comes after Gov. Evers announced a new statewide COVID-19 order that requires public spaces, such as bars and restaurants, to limit their capacity to 25 percent in order to slow the spread of COVID-19 in the state.. Political rallies and church services are exempt from the capacity limits.

In another post, the business said that customers should come worship the 'Sun God' while enjoying a new food special.

"Today, we will be worshipping the Sun God! We have our chicken bacon ranch pizza on special! Who doesn't love wine at church?? Grab a glass or two, or a whole bottle and share with your fellow worshippers! Can't wait to pray with you all!" according to Papa Stache.
