Sully, we hardly knew ye

Sullivan's on Chapel, the shamrock-bedecked watering hole for generations of Yalies (since its former days as Kavanagh's), is closing.

"Yes it is true," says a posting on the bar's Facebook page. "Sullivan's On Chapel is closing on Saturday, June 8. Dean is retiring!!!!!!"

Four Yale School of Drama grads commented in quick succession. "I moved to New Haven the week it opened!" one wrote. Another posted: "Going back to New Haven/YSD will not be the same. . . . It was my favorite place to eat, drink and be merry with friends. Also, the best place in town to watch the Red Sox or Patriots."

Not to mention the St. Patrick's Day Parade—Sullivan's busiest day of the year, along with St. Patrick's day itself. But who knows? By next March, maybe another Irish-American establishment will fill the space, the pint glasses, and the place in people's hearts.
