Even after the Saturday morning fire at Eddie O’brien’s Grille & Bar on South Main Street in Canandaigua – the downtown staple was open that evening, as country music star Jason Aldean performed at CMAC.
It was slated to be a big night for eateries downtown, as CMAC held one of the biggest concerts of the summer season.

Amy Cecere, co-owner of the restaurant told the Canandaigua Messenger that she was glad everyone was ‘O-K’, but noted that the whole ordeal was a shock and heartbreak.
Fire Chief Frank Magnera said the fire appeared to have started outside in a foyer at the side entrance to the business, which was closed at the time, according to The Messenger. That fire then spread to the interior of the building; and crews contained the fire.
