Two good friends and political opponents, former Boston Mayor Ray Flynn and State Representative Mel King, cut the ribbon to reopen the historic landmark sandwich shoppe, Charlie’s Sandwich Shoppe in the South End. Gov. Charlie Baker and Mayor Marty Walsh, were joined by State Representatives Byron Rushing and Aaron Michlewitz, Boston City Council President Michele Wu, and Councilors Bill Linehan and Michael Flaherty. A lot of Boston history was discussed at Charlie’s on Wednesday. The new owner is Evan Deluty of Boston. Martin Luther King, Jr., Joe Louis, President Obama, Sammy Davis Jr., Lionel Hampton, plus most of African-America’s famous musicians, athletes and scholars hung out at Charlie’s at one time or another. -Ray Flynn
