Sources confirmed that while cheering on the boys at the big game this weekend, Henle residents were abuzz over rumors that the Village Council had approved construction on a new Applebee’s Neighborhood Grill & Bar. “Boy, it’s been a long time since we’ve had a new restaurant open here. But let’s just say I’ve got a close friend on the Commerce Board and things are looking quite appetizing.” said Henle 93 resident, Scott Bingham (COL ‘19) with a wink, adding that he hoped the eatery would be a nice, American-owned, child-friendly place where he could really get to know the waitstaff. “The one thing I am concerned about is drunk drivers. The last thing this town needs is some knucklehead going to down to Applebee’s, having a few too many Bahama Mamas and getting behind the wheel of a car. I’m really going to be looking to the Henle police department to come down strongly on this one.” At press time, sources reported that local residents were putting together a nice fruit basket on behalf of the village to welcome the new restaurant owners.
