Closing time on Blue Hill Avenue: Last bar left to pack it in
The owner of Packy Connors, 203 Blue Hill Ave., wants to sell his liquor license to a proposed Asian restaurant on the South Boston waterfront.
James Cairns goes before the Boston Licensing Board next week for permission for the deal. Coming on the heels of the Breezeway's decision to shut down this would mean Blue Hill Avenue will not have a single bar in Mattapan or Roxbury.
Shrine hopes to open this summer in an office building next to the federal courthouse.
Packy Connors was long the bane of police in District B-2, but after four people were shot outside at closing time, the bar instituted new security measures and stopped being a frequent visitor to the licensing board.
