Memphis Minnie's Seeks Compensation for Van Damaged During Giants Celebration

Monday night's street celebrations in the Lower Haight may have been peaceful, but they did claim at least one victim — the Memphis Minnie's van.

Apparently all that impromptu rooftop partying caused some damage, including, according to at least one observer, a caved-in roof.

Now, the GM of Memphis Minnie's has posted a comment on Haighteration asking for the public's help in tracking down those rooftop revellers, in the hopes of recuperating some funds for the van's repair.

Quoth Ben:

Hello all. This is Ben, the GM from Memphis Minnie's. While Bob and I ejoy a good time as the next person, we are extremely disapointed in the Freshman assholes who thought that destroying a local merchant's vehicle was prudent conduct in the revelry that followed the amazing Giants win. For that reason I am offering a reward for any infomation that leads me to these little punks. I will not press charges or hurt them but I will insist that they pay my deductible for the insurance claim. And all this after Memphis Minnie's gave the neighborhood free food for a day last Tuesday. Thanks for showing your appreciation.

While we spotted a rotating cast of characters mounting and dismounting the van, which would probably make it a challenge to hold any one individual liable, we certainly feel for the good folks at Minnie's.

If you have any info for 'em, send it on over to info@memphisminnies.com.

(And feel free to split that reward with us — especially if it happens to come in pulled-pork form.)
