Galway noodle restaurant shares hilarious plea after "send noodz" sign is stolen
"We have watched all four seasons of Sherlock Holmes on Netflix and have come to a conclusion of what happened."
A Galway noodle restaurant has shared a hilarious plea after their "send noodz" sign was stolen between 12pm to 7am last Sunday.
Owner of the newly opened restaurant in Galway city, Bangin Noodles, Evan O'Ceallaigh told JOE on Monday that their signage from the front of the restaurant was stolen "at some point" during the night.
He added that the sign was attached "fairly robustly with cable ties and would have required a knife to cut loose", saying that the signage is important due to the discreet location of their business.
A Garda spokesperson told JOE that they couldn't "locate an incident on our records at this time" that matched the details of the report.
Sharing a hilarious post on Instagram appealing for their sign back, the business shared their own theory of how the sign was removed from the premises.
"We have watched all four seasons of Sherlock Holmes on Netflix and have come to a conclusion of what happened," the post began.
"3am. A few early to mid 20’s lads are walking down Augustine Street after a heavy night of drink and eating the ears of girls that got them nowhere," they continued.
"They walk past bangin noodles and see our big yellow ‘Send Noodz’ sign. One of them says: 'boys, that sign would look unreal in our sitting room'. 20 mins later the sign is on said living room floor."

They also shared a "list of demands" saying that they are "not angry" and will give an anonymous 100 euro voucher to whoever returns the sign
The return of the sign valued at 100 euro, would work by sending the restaurant a photo of the sign which they say can be done "via text/email/ fake Insta/ carrier pigeon" and they will discuss how the transaction will take place.
"You will return the sign and we will leave the voucher in a location of your choice," the post continued.
They added that if they get the sign back they will also give one of their followers "a free delivery" of their cocktails
