I ran into a couple of friendly folks recently that had each closed down local restaurants in the recent past.
- Donna Mudge ran Sojourner Cafe at 134 East Canon Perdido Street for decades. While dining at Cold Spring Tavern recently I ran into Mudge and discovered that she became their manager about a year or two ago. Fans of the Soj should definitely head for the hills to say Hi.
- While shopping at Home Depot last week I bumped into Grant McNaughton in the gardening section with his son. The always-colorful “Mac” is famous for running Mac’s Fish & Chip Shop at 503 State Street from 2010 – 2016. Mac is now an 8th grade algebra teacher at Marymount School of Santa Barbara.
