Though Tiger Woods looks like he’s recaptured his old golfing form, not everything from his past remains.
In a negative column whining that Tiger Woods didn’t contribute enough to the city of Orlando, Mike Bianchi of the Orlando Sentinel drops in one noteworthy nugget: the Perkins restaurant in Windermere that Tiger made famous is now closed.
Yup, the pancake house where Tiger picked up $8/hour waitress Mindy Lawton with whom he had raunchy sex all over his house, by his car, and in parking lots, from 2006-2007, closed a few months ago and the property is being remodeled to become an upscale sports bar.
I don’t know about you, but this news just saddens me. This has to be the true shame of Tiger’s sex scandal. That place should have been memorialized and turned into a museum: here is the booth where Tiger would sit with ex-wife Elin for breakfast; there is the kitchen where Tiger ordered his egg white omelet with broccoli; this is the section where Tiger’s old waitress served tables. They could have charged admission and had a more profitable business. This is really just a shame.
Even though their landmark meeting place no longer exists, at least Lawton probably got out of jail from her DUI sentence in time to work at the bar.Google+
