Donald Trump Jr. announced on Sunday that he is making a  campaign stop in Boulder and that he'll headline a rally in support of his father’s Presidential bid at The Sink. That news took owner Mark Heinritz by surprise, the Daily Camera reported.

"We had no warning. We've had no communication with the Trump organization, and the appearance of this event in the newspaper was the first we heard of it," Heinritz said. "We didn't encourage this, we didn't organize it and we didn't set up for it."

It is the policy of the 93 year old bar not to host campaign events on the premises. The Trump campaign had made a reservation for 50 people at the dive but the booking was made anonymously. Politicians and other famous folks from President Obama to Anthony Bourdain have graced the Sink with visits in the past but the ownership was well-prepared for the events.

At 4:30 p.m. today, Trump Jr. is still appearing for a meet-and-greet outside of the bar located at the corner of 13th Street and Pennsylvania Avenue.
