Alisha Kent Norman posted photos of her encounter on Facebook, detailing how her plans to watch the US women’s national soccer team take on Sweden were derailed by the rodent.
She wrote “so what do you do when a rat falls from the ceiling onto your table?Really LA? I was just trying to watch the soccer game.”
Norman, a teacher at Summer Creek High School in Humble ISD, posted several photos of the rat, including one of it directly atop a menu, just inches away from a glass of water.
She also shared a photo of herself standing in front of the restaurant’s most recent inspection grade: an A.
She says a manager blamed recent construction at the restaurant for the rat’s unexpected visit.
She says “I knew the rat was going to be injured because it hit like a Mack truck.You could hear something come down.”She says a manager quickly scooped up the rat with two plates and dumped it into a bag.
In a statement, Buffalo Wild Wings characterized the “isolated incident” as unfortunate.They put out a statement saying “ the center where the restaurant is located is undergoing significant construction and we are confident it was directly related.We hold Buffalo Wild Wings to the highest operating standards and promptly closed the restaurant for proper remediation, cleaning and sanitization. We look forward to reopening soon to once again serve our guests in the Westchester area.”
