Rumors are funny things… and for the last month or so we have heard that we will be closing in September.  Turns out, I suppose, that others knew something we didn’t. 

This isn’t how we wanted to end things and not how we expected things to go, but here we are anyway, and due to circumstances beyond our control and ones that we were not able to solve, we close on Saturday (September 22, 2018).

We are actually really proud of what we were able to accomplish.  We were able to serve good food, employ a number of people in the area, train a number of young staff up to be able to work in other places effectively, and have a product that we were happy to stand behind.  We have been honoured to work with some wonderful people and there are a lot of things that we will miss and remember with fondness.

We were able to celebrate birthdays, anniversaries, retirements, wedding and baby showers with a number of different groups, and in one very memorable evening helped a lovely couple celebrate their new marriage.  We met people from all over the world, and enjoyed hearing their stories of how much they love this island and loved seeing it through their eyes, reminding us how beautiful a place this really is.     

We have really enjoyed serving you all and quite honestly did not expect any of this when we opened the doors… or even went into the summer months, and yet, here we are and it’s time to walk away.  So, it is very much with mixed emotions, and heavy hearts that we are closing.  We hope that we have been able to, in some way, provide you with a few good memories.  We know we certainly have plenty.

Yours truly,

Linda & Darin (Lot 45 Pub and Eatery)
