‘Devastating’: Penn Staters Heartbroken By Mad Mex’s Planned Closure
Earlier Wednesday, we learned downtown bar and restaurant Mad Mex is reportedly expected to close its doors by November 28. The unexpected closure comes as its building at 240 S. Pugh Street prepares to become the site of a new six-story apartment building.
On the bright side, Mad Mex fans still have about a month to enjoy their favorite margaritas, burritos, and more. Still, many took to social media to grieve the news.
