Morshu's Dinner Palace

From Chewiki Archive - YouChew: 1% Funny, 99% Hot Gas

History

Morshu opened the Dinner Palace in 1967, attracting over 9,000 customers. Business boomed in the Seventies, reaching its peak during the disco craze in 1977. Business was slow in The Eighties, though. Computers were the next big craze, but Morshu refused to modernize because he feared a computer/robot uprising. He sold the Dinner Palace to Rick Astley in 1983 for 200,000 rupees and 50 cans of lamp oil. The Restaurant was renamed "Rick's Rolls", but closed down 2 years later when Rick made his one hit wonder. Many forgot Morshu's Dinner Palace, often confusing it with King Koopa's Coney Island Disco Palace until 1986, when it was destroyed.

Destruction

In 1986, after sitting vacant for a year, the building was blown-up by Wolf O'Donnell, just for the sake of destruction. The '60s-era building was completely demolished. Wolf would later be arrested by the Philadelphia Police Department for arson and destruction of private property.Gwonam's Pizzeria (which used to be Squadallah Burger) was built on the site after the original building was demolished, though King Harkinian hates the place. However, he tends to go there anyway and reminisce the good old days.
