It turns out Grill didn't make it to their planned Tuesday night closing, running out of food last night and closing, seemingly permanently.
Tucson Weekly contributor Mel Mason was there for the end of the Red Room, and allowed us to share her photos of the night.
From their Facebook page:
Yes, it's true. Grill is now officially closed for eternity. I know we told you we would be open for another day, but you cleaned us out. The food is gone and our sanity was lost long ago. We appreciate your loyalty over the years, and while we know you will all soon move on, we hope you never find anything more comforting than the hate and tots we brought to you for the past twelve years. Thank you to everyone who came out to say goodbye, and a special thank you to all the former employees who pitched in and helped us these past two days. So long, Tucson.
