Mama Lacona’s 1957-2010

LAST NIGHT MY WIFE AND I had our last dinner at one of our favorite restaurants, Mama Lacona’s. It was our last meal there because Mama Lacona’s closed at the end of business Sunday. It was a sad end, not due to lack of business or poor management, but government bureaucracy. It seems that Mama Lacona’s grease traps did not meet EPA standards, and the cost of upgrading was prohibitive to the restaurant’s owners. Thus, rather than bend a rule, a long-time, stable, and locally-owned family business was forced to close. To top it off, 30 employees of Mama Lacona’s are today out of work. Chalk one up for the bureaucrats. Mama Lacona’s RIP.
