Barbara Nackman of the Journal-News wrote this nice story about Guinan's final days in today's issue of the paper.
Barbara has followed the Guinan's crew and the pub's stories for several years now, including this one about Guinan's getting an extra year of life in 2007 from Margaret Guinan. She quotes Margaret in today's piece about the decision to close: "It is just time, the right time."
And now is the right time to visit and pay respects to Jim Guinan and the family. The store will close after tomorrow night.
