Kevin--you were one year behind me. I graduated Mount in '58 and went to Holy Cross, then transferred to St. John's. You're the first person I've come across outside my immediate friends back then who remembers the Circle Tavern. Dominick the owner/bartender let us drink there underage. Do you remember John' Paradise Inn up on Tremont between Westchester Square and Bruckner--across from the cemetery? I introduced the Castle Hill discussion because I'd written about John's and McMenimum's (at the end of Castle Hill) in my latest novel. Do you remember that place? Live bands on weekends, overlooked the Sound. Also, thanks for remembering those quonset huts on Castle Hill. I couldn't remember what was there before the housing projects.
