After 75 years, the renowned diner, Twohey’s, is closing on February 1st. Twohey’s has been a local favorite over its 75 year time in business, and has been treasured by both the people of San Marino and surrounding cities. Before moving to its Alhambra location, it was originally located in Pasadena from 1943 to 1951.

The memorable logo of the Little Stinkos Clothes pin and tears was created when Mr. Twohey heard a woman saying O Stinko when a man next to her was served a burger with loads of pickles and onions on it. Throughout its history Twohey’s has delighted customers with its marvelous burgers and its award winning hot fudge sundaes.

Many students are sad to hear that Twohey’s is closing. “Twohey’s has been there a long time and it’s sad that it’s closing,” Nora Chang (7) said.

“Twohey’s was always so much fun, and I used to go there all the time with my family,” Kyle Snaer (7) said. “Now that it’s closing, my family will probably be pretty sad.” Like Kyle and Nora, many other San Marino residents are sad to see the restaurant go. Twohey’s was clearly a favorite restaurant for San Marino residents.

Twohey’s was also especially memorable to the students in the Bel Canto choir. For the past two years, Bel Canto has eaten at Twohey’s after performing for new citizens at the U.S. Citizenship Ceremony in October.

“I’ll be sad when we eat somewhere other than Twohey’s next year. I had so much fun eating at Twohey’s after our concert, and I hope next year the food will be just as good,” Catie Tang said. Catie is a seventh grader in Bel Canto and will continue to sing with the choir next year.

Even though the main restaurant is closing, Twohey’s still has an off branch called Twohey’s Tavern ironically located in Pasadena. Aside from Twohey’s Tavern, Twohey’s still has a shot to move to another location, their director of operations, Tom Anderson, says that he would like to find a new place for the restaurant, to keep the ideals of Twohey’s alive. Many are sad that Twohey’s is closing but there is still hope that Twohey’s will not be lost forever.
