With his love of all forms of art and expression Bugaboo’s Bar and Grill is the brain child of award winning artist Don Frey. Don began his art career as a commercial illustrator with companies like AT&T, US Steel, NIPSCO & Guidepost Magazine. He has studied art and education at schools such as the American Academy of Art, Purdue University, and Calumet College. Best know for his tattoo shops “Bugaboo Tattoo”. Don decided to carry his love for art over to a place where everyone can gather to eat, drink and enjoy friends and family. Boasting a beautiful 40 x 60 deck off of the main dining area with large glass windows and overhead garage doors, bugaboo’s is the premier place to spend some time on Cedar Lake with some great music and the best sunset view on the lake.
