I used to go to a country bar in Pinellas Park, FL that had the same name and sign design. I wonder if they are related

there was no tragedy other than financial. there have been several fires there since it closed, the last of which took some hours to put out and destroyed a 2 story building in there. i never got to see the park before it closed but my daughter went a few times about 10-15 years ago while it was still open but struggling. it's a sad place now and many are heartbroken about its condition.

I really wish I would have known about this place when I was out that way this summer. Very interesting!
