Isn’t that the point of insurance? I’m all for helping others, but this seems a bit weird to me. But maybe I’m a bit biased because I picked up cigarette butts almost daily in front of their restaurant for years since they decided to let it all go into the drain right there…….

You do know there was a recent ownership change?

I had the same thought Tyler and I don’t have anything against them. I don’t understand the need for this.

The Trump flags that were hanging outside before the election scared me away from that place.

Well, that is some useful information, Val, thanks. Now, maybe this makes more sense.

It would be helpful to have this confirmed: have the people running Mother’s been Trump supporters? If so, do they still support him?

As I must mentioned, the new owner is not a Trump supporter. We were talking to her weekend before last.

No worries. She used to work @ Lucy’s. My wife and I were chatting with her about new plans when things get back to normal(ish), out bewilderment at Mike Hess’ s disregard for safety and the fact that he IS a Trump supporter. I wish the new version of Mother’s well.

How exactly does that affect you?

Well, I’ll tell you, Don, if they still supported trump at this point, I’d take down the post. The OB Rag is not going to support insurrectionists no matter their situation. But they don’t. So moot point.

I know that the place WAS called Mother’s Saloon, but the name did not survive the sale of the place. New name is North Side Saloon.

Not to keep kicking the can, but the gofundme page is called “Help Mother’s Rebuild”. The page has now raised $14,066.
