As I’ve mentioned before, these anniversary acknowledgements run when we have the space and therefore the timing of the mention and the business’ actual anniversary month may not match — but they still deserve the notice …

  And it was about a year ago when Riccardo and Wendy Jocobus bought the Drunk Brush and the adjacent Courtyard Suites in downtown Quincy. The lounge features a frequently changing albeit impressive selection of wines to suit even the most discriminating connoisseur complemented by an equally impressive selection of domestic and imported beer — all to be enjoyed with the live music performed a couple nights a week. The couple moved here from Oakland with their three children, Luciana and twins Lorenzo and Chiara.
