:::: UPDATE :::: Reached for comment this afternoon, a Maynard's employee said that despite the backlash, the restaurant is going ahead with the 9/11 promotion. It begins at 4 p.m. this afternoon.
Management at Maynard's Restaurant in Excelsior must not pay much attention to the news. Because just a day after a Wisconsin golf course got eviscerated locally and nationally thanks to a tasteless 9/11 promotion, Maynard's went ahead and basically did the same thing.
