Readville watering hole shutting down

Cappy's Tavern in Wolcott Square has its last last call on July 24 - after 80 years in business - as owner Ray Capobianco retires, Scott Leary and Jim Lafond-Lewis report.

With the demise of the Cottage Tavern last fall, that leaves Hyde Park with just the Cavan Cafe on Hyde Park Avenue and Master McGrath on River Street for your old-man/hole-in-the-wall bar needs.

Sad to hear. Spent many nights in that place. Not many options for a real town bar these days. Here's to the new corporate Boston. Maybe Mark Whalburg will open a Strega Stip Tease there.
