Posters at the East Boston Open Discussion Group over at Facebook report that landmark Jeveli’s Restaurant in Day Square will close on Tuesday, November 10.  Here’s some ad copy I wrote for an ad in the East Boston Community News in January 1983.  I worked there as a teenager in various jobs; I learned a lot from the late Ted Jeveli.
