The End Of An Era

 In 1954 Bill and Andy Mortallaro's father bought the Askew Inn from his Uncle.  It's been in continuous operation ever since.... until now.    The brothers retired this week.   They certainly have earned it, but will surely be missed.   A great neighborhood bar in Northeast Kansas City. 
   Bill and Tish Mortallaro and their children.... Joe, Megan, Rachelle, Nick, and Joanna. 

Andy and his Daughter Jenna.

57 Years In The Hood

In 1952 Tony Mortallaro opened the Askew Inn in Northeast Kansas City. A couple of years later his brother, Tom, came into the business and now, Tom's sons Andy and Bill keep the tradition going. It's a gathering place in the tradition of the neighborhood bar where folks have gone for brew and conversation for years. They are two of the nicest fellows you'd ever want to meet. I'm proud to have known their families for years... Bill and I went to Northeast High School together although he is hundreds of years older. If you're on Independence Avenue between Bales and Askew... stop in.
