  • A 30-foot neon cowboy boot is among the memorabilia being auctioned off from an iconic Grand Forks restaurant that closed its doors more than a year ago.
    The Bronze Boot Steakhouse and Lounge, known to residents as "The Boot," shut down in May 2012 after nearly 60 years in business. The popular restaurant was known for its meat-and-potatoes fare.
    The auction is scheduled at the restaurant site on Tuesday.
    The large sign atop the roof of the restaurant isn't the only boot for sale. There's also a 3-foot neon boot that hung above the main entrance and a 6-foot papier-mâché boot that adorned the hostess station.
    More than 100 decanters and restaurant equipment will also be auctioned off at the event that is expected to last all day.
