Google Glass 263x300 Warning! Don't Wear Your Google Glasses to This Seattle BarGoogle’s (NASDAQ:GOOG) recently debuted high-tech glasses have already received a frosty reception from one self-described dive bar.

The $1,500 a pair glasses aren’t available to consumers yet, but The Five Point’s management says that even in tech-friendly Seattle, the bar’s patrons wouldn’t take kindly to having their pictures taken while drinking. The bar’s owner also conceded that he was having some fun at Google’s expense.

Google unveiled plans for its eyeglasses, which can capture images and record video, last year.

The glasses are part of a trend toward wearable computer technology that may eventually be joined by Apple‘s (NASDAQ:AAPL) much-rumored, but as yet unannounced, flexible display wristwatch.

Shares of Google sank about 1% in Tuesday midday trading.
