I'm sorry but maybe Matt could change his shit pants at home instead of leaving them in public bathroom garbages. It's just rude!

Still miss Wendells. I do know that Gina does her benefits the fair way. I would love to hear some solid proof that others made out. It's a shame they went under but it was their own doing. They ran off good paying customers with their antics. I witnessed her pick fights several times with people spending good money. At that time they were both sober so I can't imagine how bad it got when they were drunk. I will still maintain Gina was always there for people in need and ran her benefits fair. Not to mention she fed holiday meals to Everyone for free on every holiday. Who has the proof people walked away with the benefit money? I say if you all can do better than please buy the bar and bring it back to the Wendell style. Shame on anyone for criticizing Matt who loved his mom with all his heart. If he used some of the money for her care while she was dying that is his business. Furthermore if you are going to be so critical of benefits every time there is one than dont go spend your money. I have not seen anything about Noonans benefit. They had homeowners insurance and are now sitting pretty good. Way more money was made than personal necessities require. Let's hear about who walked away with a share of Matts benefit. If you cant back it up dont say it. If they are thieves than name them. Or are you afraid? You should call them out on it if they took money meant for a disabled man.

Plus the fact that you could sit there and drink 5 or 6 drinks and the bar would never buy ya one

What bank got it? I might have a few coins. Did it do decent business? How much property goes with it?

It used to be Wendells and is on Rt 66 so when it is run properly it makes money. Nice piece of property. Back in the day it was Chet's bar.

I believe it was the 'Pine Lounge' back in the day. So, what banks got it? Always thought there was potential there.
