NEW Morris’s Grill Blog Theme

Bring Back Morris's Grill Fanpage

In case anyone is wondering why I chose the Harley Davidson Theme for the Blog it’s mainly because a large number of Morris’s patrons over the years were bikers and they helped keep the cafe going through thick and thin in support of a joint they called home.

Many of them were also close personal friends of Burt’s and will remember him for many years to come and continue to tell their stories involving Burt and his joint. Most every one of them would stop in and have a cold one after work and shoot the bull with Burt and/or Gracie and reminesce of old times and funny incidents involving the bar.

It’s still very sad to think that Burt is gone and along with him went the most wonderful watering hole that the Village of Skaneateles has ever known.

The powers that be, so to speak, finally got their way and eliminated the one establishment that so many cherished as a community gathering place for people of all backgrounds to meet and celebrate there friendships together.

Although Burt and Morris’s are gone, they will never be forgotten by the many patrons that frequented Burt’s joint or the community organizations like: the Make-A-Wish Foundation, SAVES, the Skaneateles Fire Department, the Food Pantry of Central NY, and many more organizations that became accustomed to the generosity that Burt conveyed upon them.

In closing, I would just like to say that I think the closing of Morris’s Grill was a huge mistake not only because it eliminated the one place that everyone gathered together but also because I’m sure it did create a big gap in the local economy and affected all businesses in the area as a whole.

Used to be that when I walked downtown at night there was always something going on in town, whether it was at Morris’s, the Bluewater Grill, the Sherwood, or wherever. Now when I walk downtown it’s like a ghost town with nobody around and I know this has had a big effect on the local economy.

What the powers that be didn’t realize is that all of the local establishment’s patrons frequented all of these establishments and spent their hard earned money, not just at Morris’s, and sadly many of those same patrons told me personally that if Morris’s closed they wouldn’t come to Skaneateles and spend their money anymore.

It appears to me that they meant what they said, how sad for all of us.

All I can say is that I hope they have learned something from this sad event and it’s really too bad that Skaneateles had to suffer because of this closing of an establishment that meant so much to so many and was even regarded as an institution that will be remembered for many years to come.

It was indeed a very sad day when they shut the doors of Morris’s Grill!

    I love this blog. For a while, I challenged myself trying to make one similar to this too, however I am not savvy enough on how to do it. What is this “WordPress” platform? Is it hard? Is it necessary to be smart in computers to set up a blog? I plan to make a similar blog for my electronic transformer products website. Can the functions be combined into a current website?
