Poopy's has been a staple in the biking community, as well as anyone who likes good food. The establishment has been around for 24 years, but that run is threatened now due to Illinois' safety regulations. The state is known to have some of the strictest regulations in the country, but it seems the state is split down the middle on whether or not it's time to reopen.

Monday, the company announced on Facebook that they've opened a lawsuit against the state.

The order to close businesses began March 21 and have been extended to at least May 30th.

The owner of the business, Kevin Promenschenkel, hired Tom DeVore to represent him. DeVore said he has about 80 other small businesses in lawsuits against Gov. Pritzker.

Poopy's biggest weekend of the year is their Memorial Day concert and summer kickoff. If they can't open for that event, they will be forced to shutter their doors altogether.
