Who's on First in Boston's Fenway to Be Shut Down for Good
A couple of months ago, we reported that the city of Boston allowed a troubled Fenway bar to stay open for the time being following a fatal shooting outside the place. Now we have learned that the days are now numbered for the drinking spot.
According to an article from Universal Hub (via a tweet from @k2tog_ssk), Boston Red Sox President Sam Kennedy mentioned at a meeting between neighborhood residents and team officials that Who's on First will be shut down and that Sox officials have apparently been planning to remove the bar from its Yawkey Way space after the shooting death of Jephthe Chery outside its doors early on Thanksgiving in 2015. In late December, the Boston Licensing Board cleared Who's on First of any blame in the shooting, and it had also cleared the watering hole of blame in a September shooting as well, though police have indicated that the bar has attracted more than its fair share of trouble in the past.
It is not yet known exactly when Who's will close, according to UH.
The address for Who's on First is 19 Yawkey Way, Boston, MA, 02215.
