End of a Good Bar: Mar's Trading Post Inn-- Part 1

Thursday, we stopped by Mar's Trading Post Inn in Wilmot, Wisconsin, on our way home from Donovan's. Hey, half price drinks ($1 pints) from 3 to 6 is a hard deal to beat. It used to be buy one, get one free all day, but the place was losing money.

Thursdays, Mar's has $1 quarter pound burgers and chips. Another good deal. Plus $1 pints.

Before I left for North Carolina on the 21st, we had been there and ran into Dale and Sue that they had heard that the place had been sold. Mar's husband Dave has terminal cancer and running the place has become a major problem. Running a bar these days is a major hardship.

We saw signs saying they were closing on April 9th and that the new owners were opening on the 13th.

We've been going here for 14 years and it is a favorite place, but soon to be no more.

We had two burgers and figured we'd definitely get back before the 9th.
