Community Spotlight: McCormick’s Pub & Restaurant

This week, we are highlighting McCormick’s Pub & Restaurant in downtown Wayzata.  This is a family favorite of ours and is a go-to restaurant year round for us.

Owners Tim McCormick and Michael Simpson wanted to create a unique dining experience with ties to their ancestral connections to Ireland including the Irish tradition of warm hospitality.  And they succeded with a cozy Irish pub and an adjoining fancier dining room. This is nice because you can make it an everyday casual spot and sit on the Pub side or if you’re looking for a fancier dinner out, you can sit on the dining room side and not feel out of place dressed up for a night out.

Sophia’s Law

In October of 2015, an Edina family lost their seven year old daughter, Sophia, to carbon monoxide poisoning.  It was one of those beautiful October days, warm and sunny, and the family decided to take their boat out for one of the last rides of the season.  Unknown to them, an animal had chewed through one of the exhaust pipes and the enclosed cabin on their boat was slowly filling up with carbon monoxide.  Their daughter was in the cabin of the boat and was exposed to the unsafe levels of carbon monoxide. Sophia was found unresponsive and was taken to HCMC where she ultimately died of carbon monoxide poisoning. More information on the incident can be found here.
