For many years there was a place on the corner of 1st and Broadway in Denver called Mary and Lou's Cafe. Homemade pie, biscuits and red-eye gravy and other down home food. In the early 90s, it was remodeled and renamed The Hornet. About a week after the new place opened up, someone drove their car into the corner of the building. They repaired the building, re-opened, and a couple of weeks after that someone else did the same thing. When they repaired it the next time, they put a big sign on the corner window that said, "Drive-Thru Now Closed."
