Get Yourself a Palm Tree

Coconut Grove is going back to the Syndicate... well half way. The flashy colors and the giant glowing palm trees that were added to Coconut Grove when it re-branded a year and a half ago are leaving. But the Gangster Theme of the original Syndicate will not return. Instead they'll keep the hollywood theme, with the art decco facade, but with much more muted colors. I welcome the change, I thought the colors and palm trees were offensive to the overall atmosphere of Newport, especially so close to the historic district.

They are using the change as a PR opportunity and are offering those hideous palm trees for auction. All proceeds will benefit Northern Kentucky Children's Advocacy Center of the St. Luke Hospitals.
