Another Legacy Businesses, St. Mary’s Pub at 3845 Mission Street, was very fortunate to purchase their building this past August after facing an uncertain future.  The pub, established in 1948 and added to the Legacy Business Registry this past January, will host a launch party this Saturday, December 14th, for their new Bloody Mary mix.
