Sunday night, Twitter and Instagram blew up, according to Eater, with pictures of rats running amok inside Green Eggs Cafe Midtown at 212 S. 13th Street. While everyone had thought the worst, apparently a burst sewer pipe in the basement is what brought the arrival of the large rodents, which has caused the shutdown of the restaurant for the day.
“Last night, a sewer pipe broke downstairs and released the rats that you saw in that picture,” a representative told Eater. “For obvious reasons, we’re closing the Midtown location to fix this pipe and make some other general improvements to the outward appearance at Midtown. We apologize for any inconvenience that this has caused.”
