Poopys Restaurant in Savanna held its regular 3 day Memorial Day party over the weekend and drew record crowds. For those who came it was a time for music, food, drinks and very little social distancing.
Owner Ken Promenschenkel said he spoke with local law enforcement who did not show up to disperse the crowd. On their Facebook page the owner said they had been closed for so long they did not have the staff or enough food to handle the large number of people who came.
The establishment is currently suing Governor Pritzker in regards to the restrictions placed on the state due to the pandemic. They say they are looking forward to when all restrictions are lifted.
