In Hard Times, a Beloved Pub Comes Through

The international symbol of convivial beer-drinking.

Crossroads Irish Pub has long been a Boston Marathon landmark, and loyal fans were pretty much devastated when the pub announced that doors would close on April 15. Well, they're pulling through for their fans: "After hearing all of your requests for more time, we are happy to announce that we will be hanging around for one more week! You have until close on Saturday, April 20th to get down here one last time! See you soon," they write on Facebook. Nice to have a small reason to toast these days. [Facebook/Crossroads]
