Twohey’s celebrates last weeks in Alhambra with vow renewal ceremony

Alhambra , CA United States

Twohey’s restaurant will close its doors by mid-September, but not before a send-off that kicked off on Wednesday with the vow renewal ceremony of a long-married local couple.

Longtime Twohey’s patrons Fred and Margaret Padilla renewed their vows at the restaurant. The couple was chosen for this special event because they were celebrating their 43rd wedding anniversary this year and were married in 1975. Twohey’s opened in 1943 and is celebrating its 75th year in business.

The celebration will kick off a calendar of other events, including meal promotions, that will coincide with Twohey’s closure, expected in mid-September.

Twohey’s announced earlier this year that it will close its doors in Alhambra after the restaurant was unable to renegotiate its lease. The restaurant is planning to move to South Pasadena and is currently in the permitting process, said owner Jim Christos.

“It’s bittersweet,” Christos said, while expressing optimism about moving locations.
