Finnegan's wake: not just about James Joyce anymore



You thought it was over, but the mourning of Finnegan’s Family Restaurant isn’t done yet.

Missoula’s 24-hour family restaurant closed on Tuesday, Nov. 30, but you can still raise one more cup of coffee at a Finnegan’s funeral this Saturday and reminisce your heart out about the place at which plenty of Missoula folk either worked, wrote their thesis, ate pie and cheese fries, met their high school drama friends or ended up hung over on a Sunday morning. Or all of the above.

If by chance you can’t make this daylight funeral, well, you’re in luck. There will also be a midnight candle memorial service later in the night.

The memorial service hits the Finnegans parking lot at 700 E. Broadway Saturday, Dec. 4, from 11 AM to 1 PM. The candle light service starts at midnight.
