FLYING MONKEY BUSINESS

WE ARE LEAVING THIS POST UP THROUGH SATURDAY DUE TO BLOGGER BEING MESSED UP MOST OF FRIDAY.

Hello friends it is I, Madi aka RR, (rovering reporter) reporting to you from the red room.  A couple of weeks ago, we teased you here
with a picture of a very pretty red plane sitting in the middle of Crabtree Vally Mall.  Today we are reporting the rest of the story.

On Wednesday May 4th, after ~ nine months constrution
The Red Monkey Tavern opened for business.

We thought the red plane sitting in the mall was just for promotion purposes and would be removed.

Don't you just love the monkey door handles?
As you can see, red plane is still HANGING around and is
now in its permanent location.  Mom and Dad watched the entire
hanging process.

This picture shows the heavy duty steel bracket
attached to the top of the plane which hangs over the lower
section of the tavern

There is also another heavy duty steel brace attached to the
tail section as seen below.  Mom and Dad are planning to have
lunch there next week but Mom says she is not sitting under the plane. MOL
In case you are wondering, this is a real sport biplane.
Mom and Dad are planning to have lunch there next week
 I was not invitied.  Mom says she is not sitting under the plane.
The Red Monkey will feature steak, seafood and pasta dishes and a variety of spirits.  As the owner stated in an interview, "it will be an elegant watering hole". He goes on to say "we will utilize North Carolina farms and breweries to world class cuisine in a gastro pub atmosphere."  Mom said she'd let you know about their dining experience.
And so that is it for today,
Madi, RR

  1. Hi Madi and C,
    Did you lose Blogger too?? It was off the Web for almost a day for me.
    Your new tavern looks like fun. Hope you all have a good time while there.

  3. The red plane suspended from the ceiling of the mall looks like the Air & Science Museum for the Smithsonian in Wash.,D.C.!
    Good reporting, Madi.
    Should be fun for Mom and Dad to check out their menu and report back to us!
    Hugs, Kathy

  5. Wow that sounds like a cool place - of course our mom likes anything that has monkeys so that would have to be a place she would go. But we all agree with your mom - we would probably prefer not to be underneath that plane - just in case!
