Hogan's Run ends in Brighton; replacement to get windows
By adamg on Wed, 06/19/2013 - 11:26am
Thomas Hogan is selling his eponymous bar on Lincoln Street in Brighton.
Proposed new owner Francis Thomas told the Boston Licensing Board at a hearing this morning he's planning few changes at the watering hole, except to add more items to the food menu - and to replace the bar's current "portholes" with actual windows.
If the board votes to approve the transaction tomorrow - nobody spoke in opposition at the hearing - Thomas will pay Hogan $250,000 and change the bar's name to Lincoln Bar and Grill.

Time for a hearing test?
Maybe the lawyer said "13" instead of "30." It's hard to hear in the hearing room sometimes :-).
The Stinkin' Lincoln
It used to be "The Lincoln" or the "The Stinking Lincoln". A friend used to work in the kitchen in the late 1980's and early 1990's. The then owners sold it sometime after my friend moved back to Ireland, which I think was around 1995 or so? I think it was renamed Hogan's Run in early 00's.
I've another friend who drinks there after work on Fridays with his construction buddies and has been doing so for years, I'll ask him if he remembers.
The name was the Lincoln. My husband was a bartender there for many years. Yes some people called it the stinkin Lincoln. I remember way back when they had the best steak tips. Good luck to Mr. Thomas and bring back the good food.
Looking forward to the
Looking forward to the revival of the Lincoln's old T-Shirt with the words "I've been drinkin' at the Lincoln."
