SPRINGFIELD, Ore.--Vehicles filled the parking lot of Along Came Trudy on Friday night, a Springfield restaurant that advertised a free dinner and dancing event on the first night of Lane County's extreme risk COVID restrictions.

A flier for the event claimed the state's COVID policies were masterminded by "unelected autocrats who sit on their regulatory thrones."

"Are you fed up with fear-mongering policies 'squashing' your rights as a citizen and business owner? We are too," the flier reads.

This isn't this first time the restaurant has tested Gov. Kate Brown's mandates. Earlier this year, owner Trudy Logan received over $9,000 in fines for alleged OSHA violations. She has since appealed that citation.

Logan declined to comment on the situation.
