Santy Claus delivered 6 or 7 large and heavy before-Christmas gifts to Hans’ Bier Haus, the little bar that’s provided so much entertainment to the Rice Village over the last year. The little one-story structure at 2523 Quenby, doesn’t have a chimney; the gifts were just dropped onto the roof sometime early Friday morning. From there most of them crashed through. In addition to several holes in the ceiling, the ice blocks left a few damaged light fixtures, a few broken glasses, and a sprinkling of drywall crumbles inside, plus a breakaway tree limb on the back patio. Bier Haus co-owner Bill Cave tells abc13’s Sonia Azad the partially melted blocks were discovered Friday morning.
But gosh, who besides a mean old Santa could have done such a thing to Hans’ Bier Haus? And . . . who did it over Thanksgiving, too?
Azad’s teevee report plays it straight, dropping not even a hint of a possible answer, though the camera provides a few good shots of the 2520 Robinhood at Kirby parking garage that towers over the bar next door. And on camera, no one from the Bier Haus seems willing to point a finger. It’s just fortunate no one was inside when the ice came down. “If it’s a prank, it’s a pretty malicious prank,” Cave says.
