While they suck for most people, recessions also provide others with opportunities. Along those lines, we received a tip that the owners of Commonwealth, a bar described by New York Magazine as "a kinder, gentler indie rock bar," have plans to take over two shuttered bars in the area—the Red Sox-friendly Lighthouse Tavern (left) and the old-school Mooney's Pub (right). Can anyone confirm?
