News bites to start the day

Rachel Leah Blumenthal for Eater

DAVIS SQUARE — Music venue and restaurant Johnny D's, which closed earlier this month after nearly 50 years, is having a "memorabilia and ware sale" from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. on April 1 and 2. Glasses, stools, pictures, and more will be available. [FB]

CHESTNUT HILL — The month-long Kane's Donuts pop-up at The Street is nearly at its end, lasting just through this Saturday, March 26. Head over between 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. tomorrow and the next day to get your doughnut fix. [EBOS]

THE INTERNET — Matt Virzi of Aurum Pies in Jamaica Plain has launched a Kickstarter campaign to fund the relaunch of "The Original Beer Cookie," a baking project he first debuted in 2009 with some success but had to put on hold. He's seeking $10,000 by April 28, and donors can get rewards like cookies and t-shirts. [Kickstarter]

FENWAY — Hojoko's beloved stuffed narwhal, Jolly Rancher, has disappeared, and the team is "heartbroken." Know where it went? The restaurant is offering a free Dogzilla — and no questions asked — if you return it. [IG]

LYNN — Meat Loaf, in town for a show at Lynn Memorial Auditorium yesterday, reportedly and appropriately got burgers for dinner at R.F. O'Sullivan, which recently expanded from Somerville to Lynn. [FB]
