The particular strip where the Sinking Ship is seems to have gone through several businesses the last few years and is in need of some stability. Add onto it that the Ship provides a unique experience not available at nearby Broad Ripple bars, and it deserves a chance to keep it's business open and let the cards fall where they may.
Unfortunately, this happens all too often in the city when a business tries to do something different and the Powers That Be try to shut it down.
If you can help support the Ship, attend the hearing that's being held at the City-County building, tomorrow (Monday) at 9am.
Details are over at this Facebook page.
CORRECTION: Thanks to Kevin of Urban Indy for pointing this out. It is NOT Meridian Kessler Neighborhood Association protesting this, but a group called Meridian Kessler Neighbors Helping Neighbors. They have a Facebook page here.
