Yale alumni are rallying to save the Yankee Doodle.Â From the Yale Daily News:
Yankee Doodle may come back to town, riding on support from University students and alumni.
Since the restaurant closed Monday, citing â€œeconomic considerationsâ€ â€” and provoking sadness and shock among Yalies past and present â€” The Yankee Doodle Coffee Shopâ€™s owner Richard Beckwith has received thousands of e-mails and phone calls in support of the Doodle. And in the three days since the store shut its doors for good, a group of alumni have begun organizing an effort to revive the Doodle through online donations.
