Okay kids, we're rebranding

We gotta keep up with what the hip kids like so from now on we're going to be "Bourbon and Hangar Steak!"

I kid but I get your point, they were there in an era where it was mostly feast or famine depending on how the teams at the garden were doing but it's much more of a seven day a week area now.

Wow, "economic crunch". Ever heard of that? Nowadays, we're worried about Amazon actually setting up shop here.

Lots of fond (yet dim, lol) memories of the S&S.

Not to be confused with the Up & Up in the Hojo's in Kenmore Square.

Damn, that was fun...
