RIP Paul’s

That’s two strikes for 48th and Pioneers.

According to Matt “He’d Better Not Be Making This Up Cuz If He Is It’s A Really Cruel Joke” Olberding, Paul’s has closed. That just plain sucks. I’m having a hard time keeping my reaction in PG territory.

Paul’s was an excellent local restaurant: great food, good people, quaint atmosphere, neighborhood location. Apparently the one thing it was missing was customers, although the lunch crowd always seemed healthy when I was in there. I have to admit, I’m partially to blame for the closure. I cut down on my meat consumption this year and look what happened.

Thanks for the grub while it lasted, Paul’s.

Damn.

I just couldn’t bring myself to forget that it used to be a laundromat…

I was just there yesterday with the intent of picking up some sweet potato fries for our office’s BBQ Christmas Lunch and was surprised to find them closed, but I swear there was a sign on the door saying something about moving to a new location, although it did not say where that new location was. I hope that I’m not wrong about the sign.

I may have to run over there tonight to see if there is a sign. Perhaps they’re expanding by taking over Five Willows across the street wink

thought of you once I saw the article.

We are here for you if you need buddy.

It’s just not FAIR! Paul’s was too young to die!

If you have been reading Matt’s blog backwards, this revelation should come as no surprise.  The message has been there for weeks.
