sports ’n shorts farewell party
Originally opened in 1996, Dave Gott has decided to close his popular East Quincy water ’in hole, Sports ’N Shorts. With his deeply rooted family history in the food and bar business in Quincy, I know it had to have been a tough decision for Dave. But those close to him said the upcoming retirement of his longtime manager helped him make this agonizing decision.
So, this Friday, Sept. 30, the gang will be holding their final hurrah and retirement party/roast for his manager, Lana MacDonald (Dave’s off on his annual fish camp excursion). Join the festivities beginning at 4 p.m. with a potluck meal served around 6:30 p.m.
