I went to the launch for a few reasons. I like Wally's, I like Mr. Vacca and , and I like most things related to Boston history. But the biggest reason was because the book discusses a lot of jazz clubs that were located in the South End. We've been working on a Walking Tour of South End nightlife for some time now and this book has proved to be an invaluable source of information. Mr. Vacca was kind enough to walk around with us and discuss some of the sites that we talk about in our walk.
