SEPTA Bus Hits Monk’s

Just before last call an empty SEPTA bus managed to slam into the front door of Monk’s Cafe. Luckily no one was seriously injured but the front entrance to Monk’s was heavily damaged.

Here’s the scene this morning via Erik Villari (above) and last night via Johnny Goodtimes (below).

Michael Klein has just reported that owner Tom Peters says the famous Belgian bar could reopen within a week. Certainly good news there.

Meal Ticket was on the scene earlier today with some more photos of the damage.

Meal Ticket was in contact with Tom Peters and he says the best case scenario for reopening is Friday, August 13th, worst case, two weeks.
