Celtic eatery nears debut

 Families of both Scottish and Irish descent have teamed up to open a Celtic-themed pub in the heart of Jamestown, which local business leaders are hoping will benefit the area’s business community.

Members of the Kelley, Leedom and McEwen families are hard at work remodeling what was formerly Azzo’s Restaurant at 18228 Main St.

Hooligan’s Pub and Eats will serve up beer, traditional Celtic dishes and live music in what’s intended to “breathe some life into the community,” said Jennifer McEwen, who will handle the business’s day-to-day operations.
