Pouring rain at Theo’s closing did nothing to dampen the spirit of the occasion—in fact, if anything, the novelty of the cloud burst generated a whole new atmosphere. Guests at the Pirofani closing took refuge under Dimitra’s adjacent shop awning, but even that was no guarantee of shelter from the spray.
Dancing, cooking, and celebrating the end of a long hot season in the rain was a memorable event. The only thing conspicuous by its absence was Roger’s annual closing poem as he had escaped the Rock a week prior.
We will miss our favourite character restaurateur and his menu, wish him well on his winter travels, and look forward to a grand opening in the spring.

Jennifer first arrived on the Rock at the age of 10, after her father, Michael, bought a house above Hydra’s port. While she lived in Virginia year-round with her mother, Jeanne, and stepfather, Steve, she visited Hydra with her father every summer for a month, in her younger years tripping along the port chasing kitties, then later tripping home from Cavos to make her curfew (father had threatened to call the “police” if she was even a minute late).
