Topic - City Tavern
The City Tavern is a replica of a historic 18th century building located at 138 South 2nd Street, at the intersection of Second and Walnut Streets in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Called the "most genteel tavern in America" by John Adams, it was the favorite meeting place of many of the Founding Fathers and of many members of the First Continental Congress. The City Tavern was built by subscription in 1773. It was partially destroyed by fire on March 22, 1834 and the structure was demolished in 1854. The entire building was reconstructed in the 1970s and re-opened in 1976 for the Bicentennial as a functioning tavern and restaurant. - Source: Wikipedia
The National Park Service has closed privately run marinas, restaurants and inns throughout the country and in some cases even posted guards to keep people from using them during the government shutdown, arguing that it doesn't have the money, manpower or authority to let them operate.
Park rangers on Friday were turning away people who want to visit the Pisgah Inn on the Blue Ridge Parkway in an effort to enforce the National Park Service's decision to shut down the private establishment during the government shutdown.
