Punter's Pub

By on

I haven't thought of that place in ages. I used to go there when I attended the now defunct Boston State College on Huntington Ave. in the 70s. The drinking age was 18 then. I thought Punter's would be there forever. I thought Boston State would be there forever. I thought the drinking age would be 18 forever. I thought I'd be young forever. Times change.

There once was a place called Punters

But now I must be a hunter

I really miss Punter's pub...

....
I lived in there Mon -Fri nonstop from 1978 to 1982. Too bad Northeastern was a 5 year school so I'm still short about 9 credits. Definitely gonna miss both Steve and Smitty!
