I received an email today from Rick Beckwith, owner of the closed Yankee Doodle. He tells me things are looking good and the Doodle may actually reopen. He writes:
"Because of the overwhelming support from thousands of people a new and improved Doodle might open in the same location. Because of the support I'll be back...stay tuned. Thanks again for all your support and kind words."
The thousands Rick is speaking of are members of an enormous, impromptu facebook group called 'Save The Doodle' that, as of today, reached 3045 members. The Doodle has only been closed a week and already things are looking up for the half-century-old burger counter. Hang in there Rick.
