A bartender who shall remain nameless at beloved Capitol Hill standby Machiavelli writes:
We at Machiavelli just had our sandwich board stolen. It was a lovely one, painted by my brother John. Could you post these photos on Slog to put the word out to the Capitol Hill public that if anyone has any info on its whereabouts, there will be a reward for its return (as yet to be determined, but I think it will take the form of a Machiavelli gift certificate).
The damn thing was chained up, but the admittedly clever thieves cut through the hinge. We would love to have it back. I assume it is adorning the bedroom wall of some kid out there. It's probably my karma coming back to me. When I was thirteen I stole a carved wooden sign from a neighborhood deli called Joe's. The sign said "Eat at Joe's." It was pretty awesome. So I understand their motivation. Which is why I would be very forgiving if they chose to bring it back.
Did some kid named Machiavelli take it? Seems doubtful. Any info, put it in comments!
