Many of you who have been to past Beacon runs know that Yogi's (which is two blocks up from the Beacon) has always been a popular pre (and post) show drinking spot. Well, some really sad news to report....looks like they will be closing the doors for good sometime in February. Apparently, the landlord is jacking the rent way up, leaving the owners with no choice but to call it a day. Had some great times at that bar. What a shame.

I sure hope this is as credible as all the Clapton rumors over the last couple of years!

What a bummer..Say it 'aint so Joe..Yogi's is a great place to hang out before the shows..Bartenders aren't bad neither..I certainly will miss it..Hell, I fly accross the country to see the shows, and almost as important was my visits to Yogi's..Any chance of them opening up somewhere else close to the Beacon? Maybe they can rent the space for the month of May..

I have spoke to one of the barmaids about 2 months ago, as she told me this is happening 2 years from now..

Unless something has changed.

I will look into this....

Unfortunately, yeah. I live in New York and go to Yogi's from time to time, not just for pre-shows (obviously, it's nowhere near as packed when there isn't a show going on at the Beacon). Found out about this a few weeks back. I was at a bar called The Patriot, which is in lower Manhattan, last weekend and is owned by the same folks who own Yogi's and one of the bartenders there confirmed it. Hoping that they'll open in another location in the same area.

I was looking forward to stopping in at Yogi's this year. I hope they are just rumors. Keep us posted.

Bummer to hear this. Spent many a pre and post show there and tied on some good ones @ Yogi's. I hope they stay open through May so we all can have one last Grand Wazoo there for the Beacon Run!!

Have any of you ever been to the P & G (I believe it's on Amsterdam right around the corner) cool dive bar, gone there quite a few Beacon runds. TerriB and I try to always have at least one cocktail there every year

Course I'm gonna miss my Saturday breakfast at Yogi's
