Ship of Fools opened in 1996. Glenn and I (Owen) took our hard earned life savings (and several loans!!) and started a local pub and grill. We named it after the pirate ship from a British comic strip because the layout of the space was so long and thin it resembled a ship’s deck. Little did we know that some days, the name is stunningly appropriate! Since then, we have gotten married, had 2 kids of our own, love and enjoy 2 kids from Glenn’s previous marriage (as well as 3 grandkids now!!) And every year, we strive to make our place better.
