A quiet week in Mansfield...no foxes shot or WWE brawls at Flynn's.

Can you please stop bad mouthing a local business, even if it's in good humor. God knows the down town area, and the town as a whole, needs more family owner businesses. This guy comes in and rescues a vacant spot. Can we make them feel welcome instead of posting unproductive comments about two individuals who decided to act unaccordingly. (article mentioned nothing about alcohol either)

I patronize Flynn's all the time. It's a great place, I was just stating fact. My wife and I will be there on Sunday. And for the record, I bet all fights at restaurants include alcohol consumption.

Poor bet, people fight all the time over nothing, drunk and sober. If you patronize this place, you should be praising it instead of posting comments like your first. Business owners search reviews and info about their companies online, no need to make someone feel unwelcome based on others behavior.
