"I'd go barefoot all the time if I could."

health codes & bare feet

No health codes prohibit barefoot patrons in any public areas, including restaurants. Period.

"No Bare Feet by Order of the Health Department." Something like that is written on signs at the entrances of buildings all over the place ... and it's simply not true.1 Except for one caveat, health codes do not address the conduct of patrons of restaurants, stores, libraries or any other venue. The one exception is smoking -- many laws prohibit lighting up indoors or where food is served.
