Tappa Keg Inn Receives Unexpected Visit

by

DULUTH, MN (KDAL) - Until today, the craziest thing that had happened to Dick Kelly in his 41 years as owner of the Tappa Keg Inn was a front-row view of the June flood this past summer. Except the flood didn't hurt his business. A young man in a truck who was driving excessively fast plowed into the facade of the West Duluth restaurant and bar about 1 a.m. Saturday, Kelly said. This time, his restaurant suffered damage. The impact ripped out the natural gas line for the building, leaving the establishment without heat and unable to open Saturday. Kelly said he hopes to reopen on Monday, but the extent of the damage could delay that. By early afternoon Saturday, Kelly and a clean-up crew were just finishing buttoning-up the exterior of the building. Duluth Police and Fire responded to the incident, during which no injuries were reported.
