This question was not a goof. The establishment he as at was a sports bar/RESTAURANT a la Buffalo Wild Wings, Hooters, etc. He was actually drinking coffee and was there to watch a football game as he does not have tv at home (he lives with his mother and she doesnt believe in tv--religious). It is an establishment close to his home and his friends frequent the place.
Thank you for your advice.
That does depend on the specific terms of probation. Some probation terms would not let him go to a place like what you described. Again, talking to his PO first is better than not mentioning it at all, as that helps in the long run.
