Colesante's Tavern has been a Watertown staple since it opened in 1933, the same year Prohibition ended.

Join Kelly Burdick and Christina Knott as we talk to George Colesante, the second-generation owner of the bar, has been there for almost all of it. He started out working for his father before he took over the bar himself.

George is a collector of objects, and as we found out, also a collector of great stories. Listen in as he shares stories of life behind the bar and the many things he and his bar have seen through the years.
