Save the Inn!

This is purely based on local scuttlebut, but the word around the TOV is that Maud Robinson, who was just reelected, has her mind set on tearing down the Vienna Inn and putting a parking garage in its place. The only thing I've found online to support that is this blippy little piece of conjecture, so who knows if it's true. But anyone that's spent any time in Vienna knows that the Vienna Inn is pretty much the best thing we've got going. Demolishing it would be a travesty.

Since 1925, the Inn's been slinging beer and chilli dogs to generations, with a focus on maintaining relationships with regulars. The food is greasy and delicious, the soda is do it yourself and the atmosphere is dingy and charming. I love the Vienna Inn. If and when the time comes, some sort of major uprising will have to take place to keep Robinson's grubby little hands off of one of Vienna's last remaining landmarks. I'll be forming an army, armed with trebuchets full of chilli and bellies full of Vienna Inn Ale. Who's comin with me?

Seriously? Way to ruin my f---ing day, Stetch. But thanks for trying to save my favorite restaurant, or at least the one I've eaten at more than any other.

They will never take those chili dogs away from me. Count me in. That bitch is going down.
It may be true though since they are putting that fancy community park up adjacent to the Inn. It'll never happen though, there are too many drunk dudes in Vienna.

I'm not saying it's true or false, but I'm saying I don't trust the source. That's one nasty blog.

But if it were true, sure -- save the Inn.
