I enjoyed all my years of beating your ass in trivia attendance.

And was handed prime real estate. As soon as he had to work to keep riding those coat tails, he couldn't handle the most basic tasks.

He tried other bars, but the attendance wasn't handed to him.

There's been plenty of stories about that chain over the years and this is the first time you make that excellent joke?!?

This has been the running nickname for the chain for, what, 2 decades?

Should have said TITS down.

How long has this chain been around and why didn't my inner 14-year-old (which pretty much describes my level of maturity) ever see the acronym before?

I will watch a few hours of Bevis and Butthead in penance.

Sad because it reminded me that Common Ground 90's Night is no more.

But! Beer pong at the Kells in the back on Monday’s was a blast!

Even 15 years ago the mediocre apps, overpriced beer and blaring TVs left little appeal. Bring back the original Kells type bar, or maybe something less sanitized and sterile.

The best common ground 90s nights were… in 95-99; the actual 90s

to the early 80s when it was Gladstones.

The food and kitchen there sucked. 12 years ago I got a plastic wrapper in a breakfast burrito I ordered lol. Giant TVs made it a good sports bar I guess.

Before it was The Kells. It was a pretty crazy place at the height of the cocaine days. Some crazy shit went down in those downstair’s bathrooms. Allston in all its full glory.

I ventured into Molly's two or three times while I was an MIT student in the late 80's, along with other long lost spots, Common Ground, Bunratty's, The Sports Depot, etc. My guess is that the TITS space will become another Korean BBQ restaurant.

I once went to the one in Central Square with some work friends prior to going to a comedy show. I didn't realize it was a chain. With all the good eats in Central Square, my friends wanted to eat at an Applebee's. I will never let them forget this.

That whole chain is just so terrible. Whatever replaces it will no doubt be an improvement.
