fortressmax

(no subject)

The Cage will be closed tomorrow in memory of Ron DeLallo, its mildly and endearingly curmudgeounly good guy owner and cook, who passed away (too young) earlier this week.

He'd been out sick for a few months. I didn't miss him all that much at the time, because I always figured he'd be coming back. At least to say goodbye before he went off to open a new place in Arizona, which had been his plan.

I didn't know him all that well. I do know he made the Cage what it is, which has meant an awful lot to me.

They'll be open again on Saturday. They're taking donations for Make-A-Wish in Ronnie's name. I'll be there.
