One Last Look at Pirogue's

Pirogue's Front

The restaurant known as Pirogue's no longer exists. It closed its doors the day after Mother's Day back in 2002 and the building sat, abandoned, until this past January. The owner was hoping to sell the building and the name, but in the end, the real estate company sold it to Sonic, who are developing a hybrid drive-in/drive-thru/dine-in restaurant, one of three in the country (so far).

So, for the last time, let us gaze upon Pirogue's as it once appeared. In particular, pay attention to the artwork that circumnavigated the entire building; the fine artwork that was obviously painted over when they began the remodeling for Sonic.
