Lynn's Paradise Cafe Closing News Roundup

·Mayor Greg Fischer asked his Tweeps to share their #lynnsmemories; not all of them were happy ones [Twitter]

·Lynn's former COO Patty Schnatter told WDRB that four reasons—none of which had anything to do with the $100 tip-out policy—lead to the restaurant's closing. She didn't specify what those reasons were those. Speculate away in the comments. [WDRB 41]

·"While the future of Lynn's Paradise Cafe remains a mystery, part of it lives on at Wayside Christian Mission, which picked up much of Lynn's unused food. 'A lot of items that we never get like green tomatoes and fresh strawberries," said Nina Moseley of Wayside about some of the items Lynn's donated.'" [WAVE 3]

·A now-former Lynn's employee shares "my story, and how I saw things play out in Lynn's Paradise Cafe's final days of operation." [jessaltes via Louisville Hot Bytes]

·WFPL ran a timeline of the events and media coverage leading to Lynn's closing. It's a pretty accurate round up, although Reddit's Louisville subreddit's role should be acknowledged (it's where this site learned of the server's original Facebook post and the Far from Paradise: the Story Behind Lynn's Cafe webpage). [WFPL]

·Investors supposedly are clamoring to get in touch with Lynn Winter, Lynn's owner. [Insider Louisville]

·A Save Lynn's Paradise Cafe Facebook page was launched, leading to an unsurprising shitstorm of comments. [Facebook]
