Downtown Evansville Starts Virtual Tip Jar to Support Peephole Bar After Car Crashes into Building
Okay, I don't know what the deal is with cars crashing into buildings and houses around Evansville, but there's definitely been an influx of that lately.
Why is the Peephole Bar & Grill Closed?
On Thursday, February 16, 2023, around 2:30 PM, a driver got distracted and drove right smack into the front door of the Peephole Bar & Grill in Downtown Evansville, Indiana. The locally owned spot is now closed until the damage can be assessed, cleaned up, and rebuilt. As you can see from some the photos, the damage is way more than just the front door.
We will be closed until further notice due to a vehicle crashing through our front wall minutes ago.Most fortunately, all employees report no major injuries, no word on the driver.Updates will be provided as information is available.
Yes, the car did end up in the kitchen.
Lost Hours Add Up
Normally, the Peephole is open seven days a week from 4:00 PM - 3:00 AM. So, obviously, the owner is losing profits, and the employees are out of a paycheck too.
Downtown Neighbors Supporting Each Other
Our friends with the Downtown Evansville Economic Improvement District have jumped into action to help the employees that are losing money because the Peephole is closed for repairs.
