anders tavern was at one time the premier place to get chicken in Oneida. A family sit down dinner at a reasonable price with a couple of drinks.
In 1975 Manders Tavern had already been a long established business serving local clientele happily for years and would continue to do so until it's sale in the late 80's. Since that time the business steadily declined and for the last year and a half the building has remained empty with no one willing to pick up the pieces and make a worthwhile try at resurrecting the obscure country bar and eatery.
It's not that no one attempted to recreate the success that the manders enjoyed when they ran it, but the one's that tried failed miserably. Over the years the bar has seen a number of owners, some with dubious backgrounds, some wishing to change the genera of the place from a family setting to a biker bar to a night club atmosphere. None were even a bit successful. The one time busy establishment with it's flurry of guests that dined on so many Sunday afternoons to a chicken dinner after church is no more and soon will meet it's demise with the hungry backhoe willing to tear it's heart out and banish it's very existence from the earth. The mechanical claw cannot extinguish the memories and good times locals had at the location however, and that will live on in our hearts forever.
Sources have reported to the KAMR that the structure was purchased by the Oneida Tribe of Indians and will be torn down as so many of Oneida's landmark building have been in recent years.
TB XII WILL SEE REGULAR FAVORITES RETURN
Logan Sobieck will return for this year's Turkey Bowl according to his mother Eileen "Trixie" Sobieck.
A backhoe stands ready and eager to claw at the 100 year old building which was one of Oneida's favorite eating spots of the 70's.
Sobieck a longtime veteran of the game has gotten the time off of work to attend the gala event and will arrive a day or two before the game. In a statement released through his mother Sobieck says: "I talked to the bosses and they said that they don't care if I take a couple of days off
from blowing up stuff on gas lines around here. Sobieck 25 graduated from NWTC with a diploma in utilities repair and construction, and works mainly on pipelines carrying natural gas. The one time local celebrity around Oneida was asked if he has established a posse or a pro golf circuit around his sparsely populated Wyoming community but declined to comment citing pending negotiations with locals regarding the establishment of those activities.
Other key players returning will be Willie Cornelius, Brandon Pickett, and Alex Pickett. Sobieck's friends that were key contributors in the past have not yet committed to the game as yet.
