No coneys at Coney Island ?!?

Posted at 9:45 AM on August 21, 2008 by Tim Nelson (1 Comments)

coney.jpgMaybe now we know why the owners of the Original Coney Island Tavern didn't want to elaborate yesterday on the reopening of the landmark downtown St. Paul restaurant.

The coneys have been kicked off the island.

They confirmed in person that they were reopening yesterday, from the door of their restaurant, but wouldn't say any more. Mary Arvanitis subsequently told the Pioneer Press's Nancy Ngo that there aren't going to be hot dogs on the menu at the eponymous eatery.

It's apparently going to be the "Original Beer, Liquor and Snacks Island Tavern" for the run of the Republican National Convention.

That's OK, the dogs at the Gopher Bar far superior...
