Gritty's birthday surprise

Most 20th-anniversary celebrations are a little more involved than this:

The Gritty McDuff's folks knew 2008 was their 20th anniversary year. But the word on the street is that yesterday a Gritty's staffer (who shall remain nameless to protect the guilty) realized that July 21 was the actual, on-the-day, 20th anniversary of the founding of Gritty McDuff's. So something had to be done. Raise a pint? You bet!

There in the photo are Gritty's founders Richard Pfeffer and Ed Stebbins with their buddy Mike Kilbride in the basement of the Fore Street Gritty's, celebrating. Look for more events (we hope, things you can actually attend!) to come as they continue to celebrate through the year. There's a slideshow of pics from the impromptu gathering here.
