    How can Linda Dorcena Forry host the St Patricks day breakfast when she still refuses (last I heard) to March in the parade, despite the fact that the issue around outvets was resolved? #weak

    Maureen do you know what time the bars are required to close by on parade day? I thought is had been 6PM for years but have been hearing people say it’s 7PM. I tried search the city of Boston’s page with no luck. Thank you and Happy Paddy’s Day!
