The Apocalypse Is Here: Black Duck Closes Sunday

Minutes ago, the Black Duck — the legendary Saugatuck dive/burger/karaoke bar — posted this notice on their Facebook page:

It is with a heavy heart that we announce our closing. We’ve had an amazing 40 years here in Saugatuck/Westport… and we are grateful for every friend we’ve had the pleasure to serve and entertain along the way. We will be closed Thu. 11/1, and Fri. 11/2, but we WILL BE OPEN on SAT. 11/3, and SUN. 11/4 – to say good-bye. Let’s go out with a REAL BANG!

Westport will never be the same.

Yesterday, Westport Felt A Sonic Boom. Today, There’s A Different One.

If you’re a true Westporter, you’ll know the significance of this post.

If you’re not — well, go back to your hipster microbrew.

This afternoon, Mike “Wolffie” Connors posted on Facebook:

I am proud and happy to announce that I am starting a new beginning. I am no longer working at the Black Duck Cafe.

Please join me for my first Saturday shift for lunch at Bogey’s Grille & Tap Room (2 Wilton Avenue in Norwalk).

Great food, lots of TV’s and just a great fun place. Hope to see you there.
