LOL. But probably not O's fault. I hear the franchise fees are steep.

I think it was bad management as well. The restaurant was always dirty and poorly managed. I agree that the Franchise was also a factor but if it's making money then keep it going. This might be a good location for PANERA who is looking to move.

What is Steampunk? 

The Steampunk community has described their philosophy as such: "Steampunk is a creative social movement that draws inspiration from Victorian and pre-War history in an anachronistic mix of science fiction, modern values, and a sense of fun." Steampunkers are, by and large, creative people who immerse themselves in the Victorian era yet live in the modern-day world...but imagine that the steam power of the Industrial Revolution is what drives their modern technology instead of electricity.

It is the "Future Past That Never Was", a re-imagining of history and its subsequent [fictional] consequence on today's society. Steampunk is deeply rooted in the Victorian era's perspectives on fashion, culture, architectural style and art, and its followers incorporate this style into their manner of dress, their living spaces, their transportation, etc. Steampunkers are highly creative people, DIY-ers who enjoy creating elaborate costumes and gadgets to celebrate their love of history, science, fantasy and fiction.

About the Hannibal History Museum:

The Hannibal History Museum Foundation is a 501(c)(3) Missouri not-for-profit corporation that was founded in 2011 by Ken and Lisa Marks. The Museum’s mission is to promote discovery, learning and an appreciation of Hannibal’s natural, cultural and industrial heritage. Visitors to the Hannibal History Museum learn of life in the quintessential river town through the ages: the region’s river explorers and pioneer settlers, the rise of steamboats and railroads, the Civil War, millionaire Lumber Barons during the Gilded Age, shoes and stoves in the Industrial Age, a changing culture between the World Wars, and the nationally-recognized architecture of our historic districts. The Hannibal History Museum offers free admission to all and is open daily from 10am to 7pm.
