I just got some shocking news today and it came right on the heels of having written about Pug's Friday night prime rib special.

Sadly, the owner of Pug Mahon's, Bill MacIntyre, has passed away and Pug Mahon's will be closing its doors after Saturday's service.

Pug Mahon's first opened its doors back in 1983 and has served tens of thousands since then. I first ate there in 2005 and I can honestly say I was never disappointed.  My heart goes out to the staff there. They all seem like a tight-knit family.  I get the impression that some of them had been working there for many years and I'm sure they feel like they are losing a family member and a home.
