Omaha’s famous rock is plaguing drivers once again.
After a short reprieve, more vehicles have gotten snagged on the boulder that camps out in a plaza near 156th Street and West Maple Road.
But one local business decided to honor the rock. Kind of.
Show a photo of yourself with the rock to servers at Mars Bar and Grill, and you’ll nab a $2 discount on your meal or full-size beer.
“We’re close by and we have a lot of fun with it,” said Mars Booth, owner of the bar and grill at 16268 Evans Plaza.
Booth said they’re too far away to see cars getting high-centered on the rock, but they’ve been following its rise to fame. Since becoming a local celeb, the rock has sported googly eyes and photos of Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson.
Stories about the rock have been picked up by local and national news outlets. A Facebook group devoted to all of the rock’s happenings has more than 8,600 fans. The rock also is designated as a tourist destination on Google Maps — and it has a 5-star review.
Booth and her husband have joined in the fun. They've added the Mars rover into a picture of the rock. In another photo, Booth posed next to the boulder clad in a dinosaur costume.
