A sad announcement to report - in less than two weeks McNally's Pub in St. Charles IL will be celebrating it's last St. Patrick's Day as that pub. There are new owners who will be changing the name and theme of the establishment. The newspaper article can be found here. For those of you who didn't know, McNally's Pub was the grand inspiration for our Pub, and Maurice McNally himself was responsible for our decor and buildout. We've remained friendly affiliates for the past five years and are truly heartbroken to see them go.
