1. O'Hara's closing soon for renovations. FYI: O'Hara's Pub will be closing temporarily the week of July 4 for renovations. In a brief interview with Patch correspondent Wendy Schapiro, Owner Karl O'Hara explained that the restaurant plans to raise and replace the ceiling with new mahogany. In addition, the restaurant will add new lights, a new air conditioner, new TVs for the bar and they're going to "update that pink color a bit," O'Hara said.
