ScupperJack's, The Ultimate Townie Hangout, Has Closed

By

ScupperJack's in Acton, site of countless drunken high-school reunions and holiday parties, has shuttered. The metro west favorite has been around for almost 20 years (and before that operated for many years as the Rusty Scupper, unappetizing moniker be damned). Longtime owner Jack Mendosa blamed the closure on personal medical woes and a bad economy. Strangely, Mendosa simply posted a letter on the door by way of farewell, leaving many loyal patrons to wonder what's really going on. As for us, we're wondering where to stage that awkward, booze-numbed run-in with our high school ex next Thanksgiving. [Wicked Local]
