Fenway's 'Who's On First' Bar Is Now Out At Home Plate

The benighted 'Who's On First' bar—'cheek-by-jowl' with Fenway Park—is closing down for good. It's been nothing but trouble for the Red Sox owners (who control the lease)—witnessing multiple violent incidents on their doorstep for quite a while. This past November was the last straw—as an innocent bystander was murdered in the midst of a conflict between two groups of moronic bar patrons. So, this week, the always image-conscious Red Sox announced the dive was shutting down for keeps. Said Red Sox spokeswoman Zineb Curran, "Safety is paramount in our continued effort to make Fenway Park and our neighborhood a welcoming environment for our fans, employees and neighbors. The violence that occurred outside our doors this past fall was unacceptable." Good riddance!
