Earlier this month, a renegade painter altered a single letter on the the mural on the exterior wall at Fink's, 1875 N. Humboldt Ave., to read "Couples are boning and everyone knows."
The mural, painted earlier in the year on the Water Street side of Fink's by Filthy Freehand's Sarah Linkus, originally read, "Couples are boring and everyone knows," in all caps.
Now, the sign has been completely painted over. Does this mean couples are no longer boning? No longer boring? Or has a more aggressive renegade struck this time?
I was kinda hoping "Couples are boxing and everyone knows" was coming next.
UPDATE on 11/9: Something is happening ... Stay tuned.
