Closing Time (II)

In April 2012, The Waffle wrote about the impending closure of an Ottawa institution: the Glue Pot Pub.

The closure was short lived, as The Waffle reported in an update.

But since then, rumours of the Glue Pot’s demise have been popping up regularly. But they were only rumours. Until now.

There you have it, folks. The Glue Pot Pub is closing for good on Friday, March 22nd.

No doubt, the mess that was created by the LRT project on Queen street over the past few months put a dent in the clientele. And Claridge is moving ahead with a three-tower project at that location.

It is the end of an era. I started going to the Glue Pot in 1997. For a while, I was a regular, dropping by most Fridays after work. I was less regular for the past few years, going a couple of times a year only.

I will remember the spot with fondness.
I hope to get there for one last Quart of Ex before it closes for good.
