SOMERS, N.Y. - The Somers Pub owner Marc Anthony announced on Facebook Monday, May 11, that the Lincolndale establishment will not be re-opening.

"We simply could not withstand the enormous financial burden of the forced closing," Anthony wrote. "As a small business, and not designed to operate as a takeout business, we had no choice but to stop operating... without a clear path to opening in a way we can actually pay the bills a decision has to be made."

Anthony thanked his customers and "amazing employees."

"I had hoped to be there for many, many more years but it's just not possible," he said.
