While one beloved pub is closing down, another one, the Brendan Behan Pub is looking to expand its seating. The Brendan Behan Pub is scheduled to appear at the Nov. 6 Jamaica Plain Neighborhood Council Zoning Committee meeting seeking to add an outdoor patio behind the restaurant with 23 seats and access to its existing bar. No work is needed to be done for the patio to be created.
The recent extreme heat delayed Mayor Marty Walsh touring around Main Street districts highlighting local businesses and volunteers, including several of Jamaica Plain's favorite businesses. Some of the JP part of the tour was rescheduled for July 22, and some of the tour was rescheduled for this weekend. During three separate days, Mayor Walsh will visit nine different locations, honoring 20 Main Street volunteers and numerous businesses. This weekend the PikaloX restaurant and volunteer Eugenia Arroyo, will be honored as part of Egleston Square Main Streets. The Little Dipper restaurant, and volunteer Melvin Tutiven will be honored by the Jamaica Plain Centre South Main Streets program.
