About the Crew at Peg's Cantina and Brew Pub
Peg and Tony
Peg and Tony met at the University of South Florida as newly hired Ph.D.'s in Political Science in 1995. Earning their degrees in Iowa and Nebraska, respectively, the pair fell in love with each other and with Florida. The warm sunshine and beautiful water had a powerful effect on them. In early 2000, they both took jobs in Potsdam, New York at a small liberal arts college where they earned tenure in 2003. But the lure of the water and the sun was too much for the academic life and they both resigned, moved to Gulfport and opened their first restaurant.
