Punter's Cake

Cake in honor of Punter's Pub

Lisa McColgan reports somebody at Northeastern made this gingerbread homage to the fabled and now closed Huntington Avenue watering hole.

She adds the interior was "terrifyingly accurate:"

I haven't thought of that place in ages. I used to go there when I attended the now defunct Boston State College on Huntington Ave. in the 70s. The drinking age was 18 then. I thought Punter's would be there forever. I thought Boston State would be there forever. I thought the drinking age would be 18 forever. I thought I'd be young forever. Times change.

There once was a place called Punters
And now it has been shuttered
I want a drink
I go there I think
But now I must be a hunter

I never went there, even though I was often in the area. That was a NU place and as a BU kid it seemed out of bounds. My loss.

That is why Dugout gets a cake, for the BU crews, maybe Herb Wakabayshi will make a cameo appearance. Gunner too ,

I lived in there Mon -Fri nonstop from 1978 to 1982. Too bad Northeastern was a 5 year school so I'm still short about 9 credits. Definitely gonna miss both Steve and Smitty!
