Dirty Old Men Force Raoul's to Remove Benches

New, 4 comments

Some pretty alarming news just in from the tipline: "After like 25 years, Raoul's had to get rid of the benches out front. The old men who live in the rent controlled building were getting too nasty to customers. One has Alzheimers, the other would sit out there all day, every day (for years). But the last few months they had gotten really nasty, so Raoul's got rid of the benches. No benches, no crazy old dudes harassing customers. But I really miss the benches." A bartender at the restaurant confirms the tale.
