This is the story of our lives, and the drama surrounding our restaurant and bar. We spent years engrossed in laying the groundwork, which led to our ambition getting off the ground. We opened Bob’s Gridiron Grille and the Pigskin Pub in Lincoln, Nebraska, known worldwide as Cornhusker country. Totally convinced my one-of-a-kind collection of Nebraska football memorabilia would be a draw, I was dead wrong. This is not a how-to-book. How could it be? We failed. We’re not qualified to tell anybody anything, other than what we experienced. Nothing turned out the way we designed; instead, our dream turned into something out of a horror story. In telling this cautionary tale, our intent is not to rain on anyone’s parade, only to point out a few obstacles. Our sincere hope is what we have shared serves a purpose. We welcome you inside our old establishment, opening the doors one final time.
