Save the Red Key Tavern's Neon Sign

The Red Key Tavern ...it's legendary! And the neon sign is one of the most iconic neons in Indianapolis. Not to mention that the Red Key is one of the most famous and loved taverns in the country.

This classic sign is more than 63 years years old and is now in need of major repair. Mickey, the neon repair specialist says, "It's so old I don't think it's fixable back to it's iconic state. And even if I could fix part of it, there is no way to guarantee it will last for any length of time." So there are two options and they both cost about the same...try to completely redo the original (complete makeover of everything) or construct a new sign that is absolutely identical to the original that will last for future generations to enjoy for the next 60+years. So here is your chance to contribute to one of the 150 best bars in the country for 2015 (the only bar in Indiana) at #106 on the list ( http://www.thedailymeal.com/drink/150-best-bars-america-2015-slideshow-0#45  )...and by the way, Cheers Bar in Boston is #146...take that Sam Malone! Larry, a long time patron of the Key, said we would be remiss if we didn't mention that through the years, with all the bills (money) collected on the ceiling of the Red Key Tavern by thoughtful and interesting patrons, Russ was able to donate over $250,000 to childrens charities in this city. And the tradition of bill tossing continues to this day! So let's collectively take this classic neon back to it's original state. Give what you can. It all makes a difference. Please tell your friends and post a link on your social networks. Thank you.
