I heard rumors that Zeppelin in Germantown wasn’t doing too well and there had been turmoil within the staff. But I was saddened to open my email and find this from owner Tim Cain:
Well everyone I’m throwing in the towel. Saturday will be the Last Waltz of the Zeppelin and when I close it won’t reopen. I greatly appreciate my customers but lets face it I’m the wrong nationality to make it here-I’m AMERICAN. At any rate if you have a local business that you frequent support them because regardless of what is said on the news-Times are hard. Get with your polititions and support America, no one else will. Would someone please forward this to Greg Fischer, he’s a good guy and don’t under estimate the ability of Jim King.
Not sure what he’s referencing about the “wrong nationality” part of the email … he owns a neighborhood bar in Germantown, for God’s sake. I can’t imagine this is an easy decision … but whatever. I’m going to miss that damn beer cheese … which I would generously apply to my bison burger. R.I.P. Zeppelin.
