The Kash family has been running McGillicutty’s on Whipp Road since 1994. Before that is was a Noble Roman’s pizza joint. Over the years Cutty’s, as it is affectionately known, cultivated a following who play in their dart leagues, show up for trivia, paint nights and Sunday night Karaoke. And while the beer is always cold, the drink specials affordable, it’s probably best known for it’s hot spicy garlic wings, Lisa Kash’s homemade meatballs, the pizza, killer bloody mary’s and oh, those breadsticks!
It’s the kind of place where no one leaves McGillicutty’s a stranger. It’s a friendly place and welcoming to all. It was one of our favorites stops in our Dive Bar series.
Yet early this am Lisa Kash posted this on their facebook page:
“It is with a broken heart that I am writing this. First off I want to thank my employees, who are really more family than employees — I cannot thank all of you enough for everything you have done for me and with me over the years. There are no words!!
Secondly, to all of the people who have come into the bar for all of these years — I have been blessed to have met all of you, become friends with you and some of you are more than these four walls— we are family!! I can’t thank all of you enough for your support, your friendship and all of the great memories that we all have.
That being said— we will be open all weekend, Christmas Eve and Christmas night.. at 2:30, I will lock the doors for the last time!! There are no words for what is my heart right now except thank you all for the great times and all of the wonderful memories I have with all of you!! Merry Christmas to all of you and your families and God bless you all!!”
Lets’s all be sure and send them off with a packed house and big thanks for all the great times we’ve had their over the years! Best of luck to the Kash’s on the next chapter.
