According to the Times Leader: "WILKES-BARRE — City Council on Thursday is expected to approve outside dining for a new bar on Public Square with an old-time theme."
As if Wilkes-Barre doesn't have one or two, too many watering holes as it is, the BobbleHeads will be rubber-stamping their campaign buddy's application to contribute to public drunkenness right outside on Public Square. I mean why not, it's not like WBPD has enough to worry about now, let's allow folks opportunity to get hammered right outside. Easier to roll them out into the street then.
“It's going to be a vintage type bar,” Rodano said. “Like an old-time corner bar right on Public Square." and in time for the city's St. Patrick's Day Parade on March 15....
I can see it now, folks staggering about, liquor flowing into the streets, booze hounds urinating on the square, watering the plants even....
How about we take the broken fountain, and turn it into a wine fountain. We're not that far from the Finger Lakes Wineries. Just picture it, perhaps one of the campaign contributors could plaster their name on the fountain, charge a cover, provide consumers a cup, and enjoy.
Wake Up Wilkes Barre
