Wolff's Biergarten gets a surprise visitor at Troy location
Apparently a motorist was confused upon hearing a new drive-in restaurant had opened "just over the bridge" in Troy.
The problem is that the new restaurant is a Sonic Drive-In, and the location is in a shopping complex just east of the Collar City Bridge. What we see here is a Wolff's Biergarten, just east of the Green Island Bridge about six long blocks from Sonic. And, it does not offer drive-in service.
The impromptu "visit" occurred around 3:30 on Saturday afternoon. Luckily, no one was injured, despite how scary these photos by owner Matt Baumgartner appear.
Baumgartner at least had an upbeat take on the accident, commenting on Facebook, "Apparently our patio is so beautiful that people get distracted and drive right into it!"
Other, undamaged Wolff's locations are in Albany, Schenectady, and Syracuse.
