One thought on “Bon Gusto’s Closing”
  1. This just makes me sad. I have many great memories from Bon Gustos including meeting my husband, who happened to be one of the bartenders at the time, along with many others Im happy to call friends. The owner of Wild Idol may own the building and the property on which Bon Gustos sits but we all know who owns that bar.
    Wishin her all the best in whatever her next venture may be~~ Love you Susie!
