Dave Magrogan says he could not negotiate a new lease for his seven-year-old Kildare's Irish Pub location on Route 202 in King of Prussia, so he's pulling the plug.

He's closing it down, wake-style, with parties: Pierre Robert's "Workforce" on Thursday, followed Friday and Saturday with such bands as Foster Child and the Malarky Brothers.

Last night will be Sunday (9/12).

The other seven locations will remain open: West Chester, Manayunk, Newark, Del., Scranton, Chapel Hill, N.C., South Bend, Ind., and State College.

He said most staff would be able to transfer to other restaurants within the Dave Magrogan Group. These include Mas Mexicali Cantina, Doc Magrogan's Oyster House, Harvest Seasonal Grill and Wine bar and any other Kildare's location.
