Jack Repetti owner of The Eagle has passed

Thousands of gay men have been served a drink along with a sly or sarcastic comment from Jack Repetti. The former owner and operator of the Eagle (a.k.a. The Dirty Bird) from 1981 to March 2020, was a fixture in Boston’s LGBTQ community. The Eagle closed in 2020 due to the COVID pandemic and a year later was put on the market. It recently reopened under new ownership as The Kartal (Turkish for Eagle) and the owners who were friends of Jack would like to host a memorial in his honor.
