Hippo%27sBar.jpg Hippo's in Hamtramck, a bar owned by John Hypnarowicz for twenty-three years, burned down late Sunday night. Hypnarowicz wanted to retire, and the bar had been up for sale. He told the Free Press that the future of the bar depends on whether or not insurance cooperates, however the bar's Facebook page states, "Mr. Hippo [says]...'we're going to rebuild!'" No injuries were reported, and the cause of the fire is currently under investigation. [Freep] [Official FB page]
