Breaking news (literally)! Tootie’s On Lowry experienced a temporary setback on April 11 when a Chevy Tahoe SUV drove through their storefront at 3 a.m., leaving a 25 by 10 feet hole in their dining room. Local businesses got the car on tape - it was going 70 mph! Owners Nick and Lili Johnson, who were home sleeping at the time, got a call from their alarm service. When Nick arrived at Tootie’s, the middle room door was lying on the floor in a heap of broken glass, bricks and rubble. They worked all day to open Tootie’s and within 12 hours, were back to business for Friday night. They thank their customers who supported them during this ordeal, and are thankful no one was hurt. They’re in the process of rebuilding a new storefront and other improvements.
