Earnestine & Hazel's needs your help.

Someone punched three holes in a wall in the upstairs hallway Saturday night, "causing significant damage." The vandal has not yet been identified but the E&H staff want to solve this whodunnit.

The venerated South Main watering hole bills itself as "ragged but right." But, in a way that maybe only Memphians can understand, E&H staffers believe that raggedness should be preserved.

"We are operating in a very delicate and historically significant building that was constructed in 1906," reads the bar's Facebook post on Monday. "Preserving Earnestine's integrity is at the top of our priorities, but we cannot do it without your help."

If you saw it go down or have any information about it, the E&H staff "would love to buy you a burger and a drink and talk about it."
The vandalism happened during a celebration of Nate Barnes' 27th anniversary of working at E&H. You probably know Moore as the broad-smiled, good-natured upstairs bartender, Mr. Nate.
