Welcome back, Norm!

Cheers star George Wendt stopped by the Set Bar at Cheers Beacon Hill last Friday, much to the surprise of our staff and visitors.

He was in town promoting his new book, Drinking with George, which was released last Tuesday. The book is a memoir, of sorts, with a mix of anecdotes and trivia involving Norm's and George's favorite beverage.

Prior to a nearby book signing, George realized there was no better place for an interview than at Cheers, which has played such a role in his career, as well as suiting the theme of his book.

He grabbed Norm's seat for the interview as Cheers' guests gathered round the bar and actually were drinking with George!

Congratulations, Eddie!

Eddie Doyle, former bartender of Cheers and co-founder of the Cheers for Children charity, was just honored at the dedication of "Eddie Doyle Square". Boston Transportation Commissioner Thomas Tinlin was present for the unveiling of the sign, marking the intersection of Beacon and Brimmer Streets, directly across from Cheers Beacon Hill. Eddie was tending bar back when Cheers was known as the Bull & Finch, and his charm helped convince a pair of Hollywood producers to base their show on our bar. And with Eddie's initiative, Cheers for Children has been fundraising for nearly 30 years. Congratulations, Eddie!

Happy Anniversary to Cheers!

2009 is a big year for Cheers! It's been 40 years since current owner, Thomas A. Kershaw, purchased the Hampshire House at 84 Beacon Street and 40 years since the opening of the Bull & Finch Pub, now known as Cheers. It's also the 30th anniversary of fundraising for our Cheers for Children charity. We're hard at work organizing a grand event to mark the occasion, a party so large we'll be using all three floors of the Hampshire House. Proceeds from the event will be going to Cheers for Children, for the benefit of the Jimmy Fund, the Floating Hospital for Children, the Cam Neely House, and the Globe Santa.

However, Pumpkin Fest at 75 Chestnut is still on! Come this Saturday afternoon to enjoy our fall menu additions and to carve a pumpkin for your own home.
