Irene Claims 1st Westport Victim: Bogey’s

Thankfully, no Westporters died during Hurricane Irene.

But the storm did kill one longtime institution:  Bogey’s.

The low-lying, golf-themed “grille & tap room” at the corner of Main and Canal Streets — a favorite of casual diners for 17 years —  fell victim to floodwaters of the raging Saugatuck River.

A note on the door announced the closure.

“We had a great run and will miss all of you,” it said.

“Thank you very much for your patronage and loyalty over the years.”

As we clean up from Irene, we’re thankful every human being here is safe and sound.

But many of us mourn the loss of a good, comfortable restaurant that for nearly 2 decades served Westport as a steady, supportive friend.
