The Green Eggs Cafe location at 13th and Locust Streets is closed for what the restaurant says are steps to fix a break in its sewage main.
Twitter and the blogosphere are rife with photos and a video clip - shot through the window last night - of rats gamboling atop pizza boxes in Green Eggs' dining room. (Said rats were described as "large" - as if their size mattered.)
Green Eggs co-owner Steve Slaughter told NBC10 that the pipe ruptured after closing time and that a regular customer had forwarded to him photos of the rats in the dining room. He said he was "horrified."
“It’s definitely a horrible situation and we’re working to resolve it,” Slaughter said. “We actually had a major defect with our building. For the safety of our employees and our customers, we’re staying closed until this can be fixed and everything can be disinfected."
