    Angry My Favorite Bar Closed


    Damnit! Been goin to the same place (its right on the way home from work) after work for a few pops a few nights a week for the past 2 years... And now, its up and closed... No warning, nada.

    Its pretty sad, cos it really was a "Cheers" kinda place where everyone knew your name (same bartenders, same waitresses, same cleaning staff for the last 2 years... i ain't seen one new face so they all pretty much knew me)



    Now the nearest bar to my work is like 4 miles away unless I want to brave the fucking mob scene that is Chili's...



    EDIT: You used to be able to find me about 3 nights a week at Victoria's Station in Burlington, but alas, no more.

    Anyone know of any decent bars in Burlington?

    But when we ride very fast motorcycles, we ride with immaculate sanity. We might abuse a substance here and there, but only when it's right. The final measure of any rider's skill is the inverse ratio of his preferred Traveling Speed to the number of bad scars on his body. It is that simple: If you ride fast and crash, you are a bad rider. If you go slow and crash, you are a bad rider. And if you are a bad rider, you should not ride motorcycles.

    I'm not there for more than an hour. Basically just enough time to grab a tall beer, and wait for traffic on 128 to die down enough for me not to have a brain hemorage on the way home.

    Yup, its totally closed. No notice, nothing. I was going to watch game 2 there, and when I showed up they had a sign saying "Closed for Renovations", and I've checked back over the last few days, but when I call their Salem branch they say its closed permanently.

    Yeah, Macaroni Grill and Chili's are right there, but both of those places are standing room (but no elbow room) only after work...

    I dug that place - never was a happy hour attendee but grabbed a few good meals there every now and then.

    Sucks to hear

    I feel for ya! My home away from home when I was 21 to 27 was Ebineezers in Framingham, The owner up and decided it was no longer what he wanted to do and sold it. It's now a freakin Indian restaurant.. Now all the other local places are young 21 yr old punks. Eb's was a hole bunch of regulars and the age group was 21 to 70 and everyone always had a great time!

    I do have a place right next door to me but it's too convienent. I can walk out my front door and walk 30 yards into the bar.. Free pool and a huge screen tv. I'm scared to go over there and like it too much and end up there every night like my nieghbor..

    So how many bars are we hitting in Boston Tomorrow night??

    WHOAH! Ebineezers is gone? When did that happen? WHAT WHAT WHAT?!?! I used to live in Framingham (2 years ago for 4.5 years) and I'd be there most every night during the winter chatting it up with the locals..

    Hey, PM with yer cell phone numba. I'm gonna be in the city tonight partying it up, I'll bring that CD for ya with me and hopefully we can hook up at some bar or another...

    Cheers,
    Chris
